Mobile Food Reviews and Such

Beaujena’s Mobile French Table

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.
Beaujena’s food truck is an extension of the Beaujena’s brick and mortar location. 

Beaujena's truck is well decorated.

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

Beaujena's Chicken Club Sandwich. A satisfying lunch choice.
One of the delicious Beaujena’s sandwiches, the Chicken Club.

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

Beaujeana’s 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


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 Winnipeg4.5/5
