We got here early so we sat in the park and watched the trucks set up. First let me say, it wasn't like the food truck experience we're used to. These are, literally, mobile restaurants. They take the time to set up tables and chairs, put out table cloths and menus and a waiter takes your order at the table. The menus are definitely more extensive than we expected too. I settled on steak frites from Chez Dominique mainly because she came to talk to me while I was perusing the menu and was very personable and helpful. My husband got Pad Thai from Tuk Tuk which they delivered to him when it was ready bc we sat in another area. The portions from both trucks were HUGE and it was one of the better meals we ate the 2 weeks we were in FP and it was definitely the cheapest!

We found the food trucks on our first visit to Papeete and again we ate every meal here.

There is a selection of six or eight trucks with a range of food experiences to sample from sushi and sushimi to Chinese and bar-b-que dishes.

Only place to eat dinner, after about 6:30 every evening near the tourist office.

Bon appetite

The trucks opened at 6:00 on the waterfront. From reading other reviews I expected a few more trucks.
We had the crepes from the crepe truck and noodles with vegetables and won ton soup from the Asian truck.
Nothing fancy but the food was good and the atmosphere was beautiful. They only took cash and I thought that the food was a little pricey. For one crepe, 2 bowls of Wonton Soup and one plate of Noodles with Vegetables it was about $50 US.

We had seen this on a food show and sought it out on two occasions. The first visit we were caught in a torrential down pour but huddled under a canopy of one of the trucks eating our pad thai. The second visit was more weather friendly. There are a number of food choices but seem to lean towards Asian/Chinese food. Large portions. Easy to find and a relaxing way to spend the evening.

Our second time in Papeete but our first time to try the La Roulottes, sorry we missed this experience the first time. The food was awesome and plentiful at a very good price. A very unique atmosphere nothing like this in our previous travels
