It seems like it’s been forever, but Chef Samir is fully recovered from his operation and the Comme Ci, Comme Ça Moroccan truck is back on 54th and Lexington today! He’s celebrating his return with free hot mango or mint tea. Don’t forget to try the delicious cigars and kofta sandwiches.

Even though the Comme Ci, Comme Ca Truck isn’t out today we couldn’t help but post this… it’s just too good, and we couldn’t wait to tell you about it. Hopefully they’ll be back soon!
Last week Lunch’er “David” tipped us off to Comme Ci Comme Ça (Like This Like That, in French), a brand new Mediterranean truck on the street meat scene now parking on 54th St at Lexington. At the helm is Chef Samir, who was born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco, and has created an authentic menu inspired by the dishes he grew up on (from their merguez sandwich to their chicken cous cous). All you have to do is look at the caricature of Chef Samir on the truck to know what you’re in for. He’s holding a chicken on his left, while hungrily eyeing up a scrumptious lamb on his right- and along with sous-chef Zac, they’ve been doing brisk business since they started in early July. Needless to say, this Midtown Luncher couldn’t wait to try it!
It looks like those of us who miss the days when Le Gamin used to park in Midtown, now have a new truck to stalk. Thanks to Lunch’er Dave for passing along these photos of the new “Comme Ci Comme Ca” truck. Last week it was spotted on 54th and Lex, and Lunch’er “Ceh” seemed to enjoy the merguez and cous cous. Sadly, the owner dislocated his elbow and the truck will be out of commission for a bit. You can follow them on twitter for updates… and we posted a photo of the menu after the jump.
