Comme Ci Comme Ca Truck’s Tilapia Special Is Now Available over Rice and Couscous
Back in August, Brian posted about Comme Ci, Comme Ça Truck’s new tilapia special. At the time the dish was served “over a bed of greens and soft rotini pasta, that’s been tossed with cherry tomatoes, black olives, fresh basil, and crispy pieces of cooked tuna fish” and was decidedly Mediterranean in flavor. Brian had hoped that maybe one day it might be available over couscous or rice. Well, that day has come!
Now part of the everyday menu, you can get tilapia over your choice of basmati rice or couscous for $10. The tilapia itself is simply prepared—it’s seasoned only with olive oil and herbs de provence, but tilapia is a mild fish so it’s good vector for soaking up surrounding flavors. Naturally I piled on each of Chef’s Samir’s sauces, adding extra hot sauce for me. The fish fillet is a good size and you get a ton of food–it comes with a side salad, caramelized onions, and roasted tomatoes and chickpeas. A good bet for if you’re looking for a light fish lunch alternative to a tuna sandwich that’s heavy on flavor.
If you’re after a Lenten lunch, the Comme Ci Comme Ca truck typically parks on 36th and Broadway on Fridays, but before heading out be sure to check the ML Twitter Tracker to confirm before you go.
