Le Pod, Santa Fe: really delicious French food truck

finlero | Mar 14, 2012 04:32 PM

The food truck revolution is clearly hitting Santa Fe. Had a delicious lunch recently at Le Pod, a shiny Airstream trailer in the parking lot on the southwest corner of Paseo de Peralta and Old Santa Fe Trail.

Highlights:

* Potato, leek, & green chile soup - thick, big depth of flavor, balanced level of spice.

* Buckwheat crepes (they also have a standard batter) - a rarity in the States, they use a terrific batter with some unusual sweet spices (e.g. nutmeg) that work surprisingly well for savory crepes. The Normandie (braised pork, caramelized apples, fried onions, and cornichons) was excellent.

* French dip - I'm not sure I liked it as a pressed sandwich, but the combination of roast beef, horseradish, brie, and onions was delicious, as was the au jus.

The also have some good looking "frog dogs", hot dogs served in hollowed out baguettes, as well as a short list of sweet crepes. Most expensive thing on the menu (smoked salmon crepe) is still south of 8 bucks.

Really excellent addition to the Santa Fe lunch scene, which will only get better as winter continues to give way to spring. Open weekdays 11 - 4.
