"Dinner tonight will begin with an escargot puff lollipop amuse, just a little something to say 'Hello,' from the chef. He'll follow that with cauliflower bisque — don't you think cauliflower is an unappreciated vegetable? Chef does. For something decadent, the next course is a foie gras torchon and toast. And then, chef would like to know, do you like truffles? Yes? Parfait. D’accord, he weel be sending out pour vous, ze far west fungi truffle emulsion 'vol au vent.' That’s the small hollow case of puff pastry. You’re sure to enjoy."


Sounds like a fancy restaurant, huh? Nope. Just a rundown of some of the menu items that have been available from the converted taco truck self-branded as "San Francisco's one and only mobile bistro," Spencer on the Go. Sweetbreads, ratatouille, boeuf bourguignon, and dishes that include truffles are some of the fare to expect from this truck founded in 2009 by chef Laurent Katgely, a native of the French Alps with culinary cred including Lespinasse (New York City), and Pastis in LA, who also happens to be the owner of San Francisco’s Chez Spencer, which serves what not a few have called some of the best bistro food in San Francisco. — Arthur Bovino, 11/13/2012
