Ordered the Kalua Pork Bowl – Delicious! Pork was done well without being dry, and I loved the green onions. The mac salad is some of the best. A surprising amount of food too. Totally worth a visit!

Picked up their food from Spice Kitchen Incubator.
Had the Jerk Chicken plate. Chicken was moist and tender. Jerk spice had a nice to kick to it as was delicious. The rice and beans were very tasty. Would definitely eat their food again.

Betty V.,

Yelp Review

I tried the jerk chicken quesadilla at the Winter Farmer’s market this past weekend and was blown away! It was a truly elevated quesadilla- I’ve never had rice in a quesadilla before but it was an amazing addition. The guacamole and cilantro sauce were delicious compliments and the plantains on the side were perfect. I’m already on the lookout for their food truck so I can try more.

I lived in Paris for a couple of years and this is the closest thing I’ve found to the real thing! It was incredible and absolutely worth the price! It was also the neatest thing to see both of the owners running the store. That’s something that we as customers notice and appreciate! And their new brick and mortar store is totally adorable and takes me back to France. Everything on the menu is wonderful.

Hailey H.,

Yelp Review

One of my favorite little cafes in SLC! The owner is French. He told me that they use his grandma’s recipe from when she lived in France. You can’t get more authentic than that. I’ve tried half their menu and my taste buds have thanked me every time. Sweet and savory options, homey atmosphere, inside or open air dining, and the friendliest staff. The owner likes to go around and talk to people. The staff will talk to you in French, or teach you some words if you ask 😊

I L💛VE me some Cluck Truck! Their food is amazing, and they are extremely friendly and remember their customers. Food truck magic, for sure! We try to make a run whenever they are in the South part of the valley.

Clucking amazing chicken!! I tried the Hawaiian wrap and the Buffalo wrap, and they were both so freaking good. For the Hawaiian wrap, just the great balance of the bbq slaw and the mango jalapeño sauce sealed the deal for me. For the Buffalo wrap, the sauce was spicy enough to have a kick but not too spicy to numb your tastebuds to the point of not being able to taste anything else. The amount of kick for both wraps is just perfect. The fries are fried to perfection; the outside crispy enough to give a crunch with each bite yet the potato inside is nice and soft.
The new owners of this truck are so so nice and friendly, provide great recommendations for the kind of wrap you’ll like, and just in general give you great customer service.
Try out their wraps!! You’ll melt over how good they are. Not kidding.

I love it !!!� Its clucking delicious. I like the original and hawaiian the best. The cole slaw really adds a wonderful dimension to the wraps. They even made my husband a salad because he can’t eat the totilla. He loved it and said it was great.

The Traditional Cuban Sandwich was great. Will keep my eyes open for Havana Eats so I can try more of their food

Chad Bryan,

Hmm, that’s good pork! The food truck servers up faster than most trucks. The pork and rice were hot, tender and filling. The aioli is light with hints of fresh garlic and lemons.

People who love delicious pork not soaked in brown sugar should give their Cuban sandwich a try.

Ian S.,

Yelp Review

Literally ate half of my Traditional Cuban just now. Couldn’t wait for the truck to come to Fisher, so I went and found them in West Valley. The guys are fantastic, super cool and super fast at delivering the goods!  This sandwich is fantastic!  These guys don’t hold back, either!  They give VERY generous amounts of pork, ham and cheese.  Can’t wait for my next sandwich, A++++ ALL THE WAY!  Best Cubano I’ve had in SLC, thanks!

I love the food and fast service here. Everything is made when you order always hot and fresh. The people working there are always so friendly and courteous. It is great for fast sushi when you don’t have time for a long sit down order.

I ate at their food truck and it was amazing. The rice bowls are delicious and you get a lot of food. It’s was an added bonus to have a side of sushi. I was expecting a small california roll but got actual full uramaki with real fish! It was really well made. They were really organized and quick. I cant wait to go again.
