Paris Flashback

I first encountered mobile rotisserie chicken in a street market in Paris at Christmas time about 15 years ago.  The smell is irresistible, I remember buying one - complete with the potatoes roasted in the drippings from the bird and devouring it on the way back to the hotel.  This is food good enough to serve on the finest table, or to bring out the cave man in any of us.  

I read about portable rotisseries in European markets, but I had never seen one in a market in the United States until San Francisco.  This is the Wednesday market at the Civic Center.  The smell would awaken the dead, if this does not revive your appetite, you need a doctor.  The country needs a thousand more of these. . 

Have you seen a mobile rotisserie? 


  1. never...but I would buy one of those chix in a heartbeat!

  2. Nope,,,,,but I sure can smell it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love rotisserie chicken.

  3. Nope. If it ain't fried I don't want it! Balder Half, on the other hand, loves the stuff. He would not buy from a truck if he saw one. He's inspected too many buildings for fire hazards and has seen too much stuff that goes on in kitchens, so I have a hard enough time dragging him to certain restaurants let alone a truck!

  4. I didn't even know they existed!
