It’s a surprising and impressive red Citroën truck that welcomes you at Le TUB, the new restaurant in rue de Beaujolais, Palais Royal. We must say that the boss knows a lot about food truck as he drove through the streets of Paris with his own for a few years. It’s like a nod to the past that he’s decided to change the trend and put a truck inside his restaurant.
The open-plan kitchen promises nice, simple and quick dishes, like flammenküche (an Alsatian specialty and also Le TUB’s specialty: a fine dough covered in crème fraiche, raw onions and bacon, for the classic recipe); as well as rectangular pizzas, burgers and salads.
We let the Alsatian boss recommend us the beautiful munster cheese flammenküche (€15), and a Bacon BBQ hamburger (€18). We understand why the boss is so proud of his flammenküche: the dough is made by an Alsatian baker and it’s crispy and filled with munster, so good!
As for the hamburger, which sesame bun is organic, it’s simple but effective and served with a nice bowl of French fries. As for dessert, we try the surprising sweet flammenküche (€12): the same dough as for the savory version but covered with apple slices and lots of cinnamon, perfect to wrap up this Alsatian meal.
Super-well located, behind the magnificent Théâtre du Palais-Royal, with its beautiful, quiet and sunny terrace, Le TUB is always crowded and provides a non-stop service from noon to midnight. Here, food is fast, tasty and working and prices are very correct in light of the neighborhood. The perfect place to meet friends, share a board, a pizza or a tarte flambée (the other name for the Flammenküche), without being afraid of blowing up your budget.
And rumor has it that the first floor will be fitted very soon to welcome even more foodies, and most of all, a hidden bar is said to open soon in the basement. But, shh, we didn’t tell you anything!
