San Frfancisco chef Hugh Schick has transformed a originally yellow school bus into a mobile kitchen and eatery he calls Le Truc. The new “bustaurant” has a gourmet kitchen, skylights and indoor seating for up to 12 and serves locally sourced, seasonal menus.
The Le Truc bus opened Tuesday, serving up savory sandwiches made with ingredients like grilled Portobello mushrooms, grilled duck breast with a reduction of dried cherry and ground-chicken meatballs. Currently, Le Truc’s operators are lobbying to serve alcohol for food/beer pairings. They also plan to set up for dinner in a second location a few blocks away near San Francisco’s South Park neighborhood.
