**SADLY LOOKS LIKE THIS FOOD TRUCK HAS CALLED IT QUITS**
A week or so ago one of the many coupon/discount/daily deal websites I'm signed up with sent me a 50% off coupon (it was Scoutmob) for a relatively new food truck in the Bay Area called Le Truc. One day last week I managed to leave work a little early and on my way home I see Le Truc set up in a parking lot on Brannan Street next to a Wells Fargo/Starbucks. I thought, well that's convenient, so I went the few more blocks home got my coupon and headed back to give it a try, since you know I'm all about food trucks.
I decided to go with the bleu cheesesteak a side of old school fries and because I had the coupon I got a brownie also. All for $7.50 after coupon which I consider a good deal, without the coupon maybe not so much but we will see. The tri-tip in the sandwich was appropriately tender and tasty and to me was the star of the sandwich, well cooked I say. The provolone, portobellos and scallions were nicely sauteed and turned this into a moderately gourmet cheesesteak. While I liked the bleu cheese sauce I felt there wasn't enough and had I eaten on the bus I probably would have asked for more.
The old school fries (as they call them) came with a mustard aioli, which was good, tasted a little like a dijonaise which isn't a criticism cuz' I liked it. There was a hint of basil which really was just a hint as the mustard overpowered it a bit as did the ketchup one would use a dipper for fries. Now the menu said there was also cayenne pepper to be put on the fries and while you can see the red on them I honestly couldn't taste it, maybe they should try a different spice or a better powdered pepper, eh, a matter taste I guess. But still I liked the thin fries--when deep fried properly like these, mmm tasty. And while I was having these for lunch I'm sure they go over real well after the bars close and you get that 2am craving.
The brownie was just okay. It was very thick but bordered closely on being a little dry and not quite as moist as I would have like which means it could have benefited immensely from either some ice cream or fresh cream to counteract the thickness of it. I'd say skip the brownie and look for a crepe wagon or cupcake truck if you need a dessert.
Overall I found the sandwich and fries enjoyable if maybe a dollar too much but I would still go back and try other things as their menu shows that for a food truck they have a vast array of choices and also do breakfast which looks worth trying.
