Chez Spencer French Taco Truck Drew Crowds to a SOMA Parking Lot Last Night

French-food-lovin' patrons needed patience to deal with long waits
French food from a taco truck? Last night Chez Spencer restaurant rolled out its rehabbed taco wagon (or as the French would say, a camion de taco), dispensing sautéed sweetbreads, escargot "lollipops," and potato-garlic soup from the parking lot of Oil Can Henry's quick lube. Clearly, Spencer on the Go suffered first-night jitters - it took us 45 minutes to get our order of curried frog legs. Chez Spencer chef and owner Laurent Katgely could be heard cursing as he spooned stuff from copper pans into paperboard boats. If you missed it, despair not. Katgely plans to fire up the truck's burners again tonight and Saturday, 6 p.m.-midnight, at Folsom and Seventh St. (Check for status updates on Twitter.) Terroir wine shop and bar directly across Folsom is inviting street-food thrill-seekers in to take a load off and score a little something to wash down that skate wing. So how was last night's food? The curry-napped frog legs ($9) we tried were, well, okay, a few bites of moist flesh and vivid spice. Let's put it this way: They were the best damn frog legs we've ever eaten while squatting in a parking lot on Folsom. More pics after the jump.
