Beaujena’s Mobile French Table

Beaujena's Mobile on Urbanspoon

I first noticed the Beaujena’s truck last year.  However, it always seemed to have large lineups.  I was also told by co-workers that the service was quite slow.  I ended up giving it a pass.  Early this summer I noticed the truck was back.  There was no one in line so I decided to give it a try.  I wanted to try it again before writing it up, but a couple of days later it had disappeared.

It turns out the owners had taken a trip to Europe.  So, I kept waiting and as soon as I noticed that the truck had returned, I visited again.  This is one truck whose return to Broadway was worth waiting for.

Value:

Beaujena’s only offers sandwiches and most are between $8.00-$8.50, and packed with food.  One of my co-workers tried the duck confit sandwich which is the outlier at $13.50, but described it as worth the price as well. 4.5/5

Selection:

As mentioned, Beaujena’s only offers sandwiches.  There are about half a dozen of these, and all are worth trying.  Also each of the sandwiches qualifies as a meal in itself, meaning you don’t need a side dish to feel satisfied.  4.5/5

Quality:

The quality here rivals that of Red Ember.  Beaujena’s holds to the slow food philosopy, and  everything is well cooked.  The “Death By Bacon” sandwich I had the first time featured side pork that was cooked in such a way that it melted in your mouth.  The chicken in the chicken club was both light and dark meat complimented by a piquant sauce.  The buns are always fresh, with a crisp top and a chewy finish. 5/5

Portability:

The sandwiches come wrapped in wax paper and tin foil.  As a result the packaging can be molded in such a way that you can walk and eat without spilling on yourself.  This is good since the sandwiches themselves are stuffed so full, bits of food can easily fall out.  4.5/5

Service:

Beaujena’s is slow food, and the service matches it somewhat.  This isn’t a place to stop for lunch if you are in a real hurry.  However, the service is well-organized and friendly which makes up for some of the slowness. 4/5

Beaujena’s Overall:

A little slow or not, you definitely want to make your way to this truck.  It’s one of the very best on the streets of Winnipeg. 4.5/5
