Their New Loyalty Card Isn’t the Only Reason to Return to the Comme Ci Comme Ça Truck

Moroccan food truck Comme Ci Comme Ça has a special place in my heart because it was the first food truck I visited after I started working in midtown and became a Midtown Luncher. When it opened back in 2010, everyone was excited. Chef Samir and his crew consistently received Midtown Lunch write-ups after being nominated for a Vendy Award in 2011, and later that year won Street Meat Palooza 4.

Last week in the Midtown Lunch Twitter Tracker, I noticed Comme Ci Comme Ça was coming to Midtown before a run in Staten Island to give Hurricane Sandy aid, and that they are introducing a new loyalty card. I had been hoping to remind readers about the truck for quite some time, so this was a good opportunity.

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! Read more »

Comme Ci Comme Ca Raises Prices: Just a heads up so you can avoid sticker shock... it looks 2011 Vendy Award nominee, and Street Meat Palooza 4 winner Comme Ci Comme Ca has raised their prices. A luncher hit up the truck today and discovered a newly printed menu with all dishes $1 more expensive across the board. $11 is a lot to pay for street meat, but in the case of the cous cous royale, it might just be worth it!

Comme Ci Comme Ca’s Tilapia Special Rivals Kwik Meal

Even with all the moving of spots and excessive ticketing, the Comme Ci, Comme Ca Truck has been continually offering weekly specials since June. For example last week Chef Samir served grilled tilapia over pasta, and he is still serving it this week. I’ve been thinking about these guys since their recent Vendy Award nomination leak and so I found myself in line at their colorful lime green truck ready to dig in.

Comme Ci Comme Ca Nominated For a Vendy!?

Got super excited when I saw this on the Twitter Tracker this morning… thinking that the Vendy Award finalists had been announced. No such luck though! It appears as if the Comme Ci Comme Ca truck jumped the gun a bit on the announcement. The Street Vendor Project makes videos about each of the vendors, so the finalists always find out a bit before we do. If it does turn out to be true, a big hearty congrats to Chef Samir! (I guess nobody said anything to him about keeping it a secret?)

Oh, and if you haven’t bought your tickets yet for the September 24th event at Governor’s Island you might want to get on that. There are less than 40 General Admission tickets left. Scratch that. General Admission tickets are now sold out! But there are still early admission tickets left ($145) and sponsorship packages come with tickets, making sponsoring the Vendys not much more expensive than buying tickets directly (plus you get to support a great cause.)

Get 50% Off Comme Ci Comme Ca Until 4pm Today: Groupon is offering $6 worth of food for just $3 at the Comme Ci Comme Ca Truck (parked on 38th and B'way).  There's only one catch... you have to use the deal today before 4pm.  (Score one for the procrastinators taking a late lunch today!)

Comme Ci, Comme Ça Truck Begins Weekly Specials

Specials Menu

Chef Samir is mixing things up at the Comme Ci, Comme Ça Truck this past week, adding some specials. The truck’s sandwiches have been getting a lot of love in the forums and for vegetarians or folks looking for something on the lighter side on this brutally hot day, the salads and the Bademjan wrap should fit the bill.

Comme Ci Comme Ça Truck’s Chicken Over Rice is Great


Several months ago, I reported seeing that the Comme Ci Comme Ça Truck had added over rice specials to their Mediterranean influenced Moroccan menu. I’ve been a fan of their chicken couscous, but on a recent trip I noticed that all five of the people in front of me ordered chicken over rice and I had to see how they’d pull off this midtown lunch staple.
