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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
