“Romantic and a bit of Franch”
Review of Le Pod - CLOSED

Le Pod
Cuisines: French
Description: This may just be a food truck, but it is also one of the best places to eat in Santa Fe. Check out the comments found here on Trip Advisor and their Facebook page and other reviews. The crepes are fantastic, the soups are the best in Santa Fe and the owners are friendly and accomodating. Le Pod is quickly becoming one of the "must try" places in Santa Fe!

“Romantic and a bit of Franch”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

LePod has the most amazing, fresh and hot crepes - dessert or a meal - straight for the chef in a renovated pod trailer. Imagine steamy, tres chessey creps while relaxing under their camper type umbrella on folding camp chairs across the street for the state capital. Very chic and a great detour from the regular tourist fare.

“TRÈS BIEN...”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Located in a vacant lot at the intersection of Old Santa Fe Trail and Paseo del Peralta, this tiny Airstream trailer is a repository of the most amazing French food in Santa Fe. The crepes are sweet or savory, the soups are rich and flavorful. I have yet to try the sandwiches but am intrigued by the "frog dog", a frank served in a baguette topped with melted cheese and green chile. Kudos to the owners for sticking it out during Santa Fe's breezy spring months. I'm sure the summer will bring them ample rewards with the influx of hungry tourists! Note that they only serve during the lunch period and only on weekdays...for now.

“What a treat!”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

So I usually wouldn't take the time to review food from a food truck, but Le Pod is so much more than one would expect. We have been several times now and we have not been even the slightest bit disappointed. We have tried several soups, and all of them were excellent, but the potato leek and green chile is to die for! Creamy and delicious, packed full of flavor with just the right touch of green chile, every bite is a treat. Just thinking about it makes me want a bowl. The crepes are thin and delicious as well, and you can choose from a regular crepe batter or a buchwheat crepe which is gluten-free. The crepe Normandie is especially divine- braised pork, caramelized apples, crispy onions and cornichons. I wasn't sure how much I would like it, but one bite into the crepe - which was big enough to share when paired with a small soup - and I was sold. The lemon and sugar dessert crepe is wonderful as well. Other crepe choices are available - ham and cheese, seafood, chicken and mushroom, and Végétarienne as well as another few dessert crepes. Gluten-free and vegetarian diners won't be disappointed. There are also "Frog dogs," Le Pod's version of a hotdog served in a baguette and the decadent Gratin Dauphinois--cheesy, creamy scalloped potatoes.

Another plus is the wonderful staff. Friendly and welcoming, they aim to please. Look for the shiny airstream in the parking lot across Santa Fe Trail from Kaune's. You won't be sorry!
