The street food phenomena arrived in Paris at the start of 2010. Imported from the US, street food comes in two forms: food trucks or takeaways from permanent establishments. Quality, a varied range of food and affordable prices have contributed to the roaring success of this concept.
Food trucks have become an essential part of the urban landscape in Paris and the Paris region, and it is best to keep an eye on social networks to find out where these travelling restaurateurs will be stopping next.
These new type of eateries near major tourist attractions, below office blocks, at markets or in cultural and festive places are a great hit with Parisian food fans and visitors passing through the city and attract a large crowd! Plus, there is something for all tastes.
Le Camion qui Fume, Paris’s first food truck, authentic burgers are cooked and served in front of customers. The Mozza & Co offers mozzarella-based Italian flavours. For delicious Argentinian empanadas, opt for El Carrito de Clasico Argentino. As for the Camion Bol, it offers a culinary journey through Asia with Vietnamese specialities.
True French gastronomy foodies head to the Canard Huppé, where duck (but not only duck!) is served in many ways. Whether you are getting a takeaway or eating on the premises (standing or at a table) the atmosphere is friendly and the prices always reasonable.

Some of these brands also have permanent establishments, like Mozza & Co or Clasico Argentino. In fact, street food is not just limited to food trucks; Paris is full of places devoted to street food. At Big Fernand (2 Parisian addresses) the burger is king.
L’As du Fallafel is an institution in the Marais, and on the Left Bank, L’Avant Comptoir serves delicious sandwiches. There are real kebabs at Grillé, currywurtz (sausages with curry) like in Berlin at the Stube or even a cornet of yummy Belgian chips at De Clercq. An authentic culinary world tour to satisfy all your desires!
