TODAY’S LUNCH: MERGUEZ SAUSAGE SANDWICH FROM BISTRO TRUCK

I’ve been hearing good things about the Bistro Truck, so Today’s Lunch is their merguez sandwich. The Bistro Truck has been around for a while, and features North African French-inspired cuisine, such as tajines, chicken and lamb brochettes, dijon chicken, marrakech lamb, couscous, and they also have a well-regarded hamburger.

The merguez sandwich featues a spicy grilled lamb sausage served on a French baguette with roasted tomato-carmelized onions, charmoula (a Moroccan marinade), cheese, lettuce and some french fries (in the sandwich).  It was a tasty combination, the spicy sausage, cheese, marinade, onions and everything else.  It went together beautifully.  I don’t usually like tomatoes, but they were good roasted with onions in the sandwich.

I also wanted to try their chicken or lamb cigars (appetizer-sized chicken or ground lamb in filo dough), but they didn’t have them today.  Oh well, there’s always next time.

The merguez sandwich was really tasty, so Today’s Lunch was a solid 9 out of 10.  Looking forward to trying some of their other dishes.

  1. I was next to you in line(that’s me in the 2nd picture), and I had the lamb brochette sandwich. It was really tasty… the marinade was flavorful with hints of cumin. My only criticism is that parts of the sandwich were dry; I feel that they could have used a bit more sauce. Other than that, it was delicious. I will have to try other selections on the menu.
