NY Times -- "In France, there is still a widespread belief that the daily diet in the
United States consists of grossly large servings of fast food. But in
Paris, American food is suddenly being seen as more than just
restauration rapide. Among young Parisians, there is currently no
greater praise for cuisine than “très Brooklyn,” a term that signifies a
particularly cool combination of informality, creativity and quality.
All three of those traits come together in the American food trucks that
have just opened here [in Paris], including Cantine California, which sells tacos
stuffed with organic meat (still a rarity in France), and a hugely
popular burger truck called Le Camion Qui Fume
(The Smoking Truck), owned by Kristin Frederick, a California native who graduated from culinary school here."
