Newest to the meals on wheels scene is Le Truc, which opened about two weeks ago. The former school bus is pimped out with a kitchen, seating and black exterior. Le Truc feeds 12 with seating, reservable on its Facebook page, but it also serves walk-ups. The specialty dishes include yellowtail sashimi with pluot plum, shiso and summer squash; hefeweizen-braised ginger-fennel beef with carrots and smoked onions; and pistachio cheesecake with a gingersnap crust.
The other SF truck is Diamond Lil, which rolled onto the scene in April with a repurposed 1957 Greyhound bus. It's an eco-friendly bus that runs on bio-fuel and used cooking oil and whose interior boasts recycled materials, such as wood, rubber and paper. The bustaurant seats 16 and turns out fare like Cuban pig, herring and veggie paella. Check out its website for dinner reservation info.
This sure is an upgrade from the bus service we're used to having!
