I currently work in industrial/tech park in the middle of nowhere (at least it feels like the middle of nowhere). Fortunately the food trucks occasionally visit the area.
On this day, I checked out C’est si bon Food truck, which features french cuisine such as beouf bourguignon, croissants, and variety of pastries like tarts and mille feuilles.
I went with bouchée à la reine. This traditional dish (“the Queen’s mouthfuls”) is named for Marie Leczinska, the 18th century queen’s consort of France, wife to Louis XV. The historical dish was made with chicken, but C’est si Bon’s dish uses turkey.
This is a (rather large) Vol-au-vent (barrel-shaped puff pastry shell) filled with morsels of roasted turkey, mushrooms, quenelles, long grain rice and a béchamel sauce. I liked the concept of this dish more than the actual execution. I found the turkey a bit overcooked and dry, and the cream sauce was bland and needed salt. The puff pastry was crisp and light and flakey, and the mushrooms were nicely done, buttery and well seasoned. While the turkey was a little dry, the portion was quite generous; there was a lot of meat in this dish, so it’s good value.
Perhaps I caught them on a bad day.
