It’s not everyday you come across a pizza van in central Paris, and especially not one like Le Camion à Pizzas in the 104 (rue d’Aubervilliers) arts centre: Its shiny black, retro-futurist bodywork looks like something from ‘pimp my ride’ and blends in perfectly with the wacky art installations on display all around – food for your eyes while you wait for your pizza to crisp in the oven. As for the pizzas, the bases are just the right thickness and the toppings (think marinated aubergines, smoked salmon cooked with onions, crunchy roquette and Parma ham) fresh and flavoursome. Service is with a smile too – a rarity in grouchy Paris. On a sunny day scoff the lot in the next-door Jardins d’Eole (Rue d'Aubervilliers or rue Riquet, 18e) – a modern park with strangely haunting views over the surrounding factory rooftops and the Sacré Coeur.
