We finally found ourselves at the same place at the same time as Plouf Plouf, a French Bistro food truck when we went to the Winter Farmer's Market. We'd been wanting to try it for awhile, and were excited to finally have the chance.
Bear is distrustful of food trucks and took a little convincing, but when she saw the menu, it was an easy sell.
We ordered Boeuf Bourguignon for me, and 'Ambuhger de Canard & Frites (duck hamburger with fries).
The bun was a little burnt, but the burger was perfectly prepared, with applewood smoked bacon, wild mushrooms and pea greens. The bacon was phenomenal, but duck doesn't make a great hamburger, in my opinion. Then again, I'm not a big fan of duck. Bear loves duck, but the burger didn't quite live up to her expectations. She liked it well enough, but it's unlikely she'd order it again.
The Boeuf Bourguignon was another story entirely. It was amazing.
The sauce was rich, the pasta perfectly cooked, and the beef and carrots tender. Although Bear finished her duck burger, she also shared quite a bit of my stew.
Recently I was at the Starbucks on Thayer Street when someone came in to excitedly tell their friends that Plouf Plouf was around the corner. Those people were gone from Starbucks in moments. The food is that good.
We'll be back to Plouf Plouf again. Maybe not for the duck, but the Boeuf bourguignon. Probably the Steak Frites a L'echalotte or Croque Monsieur. I hear they were at the Hope Street Holiday Stroll selling Filet Mignon. Mmmm....
