LES ROULOTTES - TAHITI

LES ROULETTES FOOD TRUCKS
WATERFRONT, PAPEETE
FRENCH POLYNESIA
148631865
HOURS:  6:00 PM - 2:00 AM

The Waterfront Food Trucks in Papeete, Tahiti are highly ranked on TripAdvisor and were recommended by our Flight Attendant on the flight down to Tahiti.  Not knowing much about the local food scene, we decided to try it out during one of our first nights in Papeete.  We arrived just past 6:00 pm to find just a few people standing in line or sitting at tables.  As the evening progressed many tables were filled with locals and tourists devouring huge plates of food.  Most or all of the Food Trucks here have tables where you can sit.  They actually bring you full menus that are all in French and provide table service.  Simply order from your waiter or waitress and in minutes your food is delivered.  Everyone speaks French so knowing a few words or being able to translate helps.
We had the vision of visiting each food truck and there were around eight of them.  Thought we  would have one plate of food at each truck to try them all.  Well, we made it through two.  Our first stop was at Chez Dominique.  This place serves up towering plates of food that are massive.  We went for the Steak Frites (1350 XPF) or about $14 US.  The steak was large but unseasoned.  Still tasted good though.  We tried adding salt from the shaker at the table but it was all clogged up.  The French Fries below the steak were awesome.  Crispy, thin and very tasty.  After sharing this one plate we all were pretty full and my dream of hitting all of the trucks soon faded.  We did manage to visit Roulotte Kim which serves a localized, French Chinese menu.  We tried the Spicy Shrimps (1800 XPF) or around $18 US.  The Shrimp was not spicy at all and in fact had very little flavor.  We did get full eating here and the food was not bad at all.
