Some of you may have seen Le Truc, the school “bustaurant” that serves food at a variety of Off the Grid and other street food events. According to SFoodie, Le Truc is going to be regularly parked in the Wells Fargo parking lot on Brannan Street for lunch. And if it’s a rainy day, you’ll be able to take a seat at a table inside the bus. Urban Daddy mentions this additional tidbit: “In a few weeks, they’ll start parking near a bar (hint: one serving a good selection of Belgian ales) and dishing out prix-fixe dinners with courses as extravagant as sashimi or as hearty as chicken meatloaf.” Follow them on Twitter for updates. 470 Brannan St. at 4th St.

Also in SoMa, a tablehopper reader reports Crêperie Saint Germain “has taken over the Metro Crepes space at 1 Sansome, and then on their website looks like they’ve got a third location up and running in SoMa near Van Ness (inside a Chevron station).” Eater also reported the dine-in location at 1 Sansome Street includes sandwiches and smoothies. Hours for 1 Sansome are Mon-Fri 6:30am-4pm, and the take-out operation at the Chevron Station (the Tower Car Wash one at 1601 Mission St.) serves crêpes from 7:30am-2pm. The original take-out stand at 222 2nd Street continues to serve Mon-Fri 7:30am-4pm, and additional evening hours of Fri-Sat 8pm-4am.

And Tim Luym, the former chef at Poleng Lounge (currently at Attic in San Mateo) joined up with a couple friends and just launched The WOW Truck this past weekend, serving silog. Here’s more from The Feast: “The fare is strictly silog, a traditional Filipino breakfast-y dish that always has fried eggs, garlic rice, and a heaping pile of meat, but you can supplement with adobo wings or sweet potato fries. The plates are simple, offering a choice of corned beef, pork sausage, spam, or chicken nestled against a generous portion of rice, eggs, and fresh tomato.” Here’s the Twitter feed, so you can track the truck, which seems to be mostly wheeling around downtown San Jose. Oh yeah, and there’s a DJ setup on board. Woot!
