I've been posting on social media all this week as the information has trickled in about veg options at the food truck rally this Friday, June 20th from 6pm to 9pm. It will be held on Church Street downtown and will feature live music, a climbing wall, and light art surprises at the end. Curse gaming will be there giving out free tshirts to the first 500 people.
As we've talked about before, navigating a food truck event can be very difficult for a vegan or plantbased dieter - in some cases even a vegetarian - so I've tried to get info from as many trucks as I could. I will be updating this post as I get more info. The list of trucks I've contacted is as follows:
I've vblogged about these folks before. They have a veggie burrito to die for! A homemade flour tortilla wraps up fried veggies, vegan beans, and tasty seasoning. Ask them to leave off the cheese and sour cream for a vegan experience. They have also been posting about a special "surprise" just for vegans, and lately lots of yummy looking photos of soyrizo! Crave Heat has responded and is in the process of expanding our veg options, so ask about their special and be sure to thank them for being forward thinking.
Dallas Mill Deli
Earth and Stone Woodfired Pizza
I talked with Earth and Stone Wood Fired Pizza on Twitter a few weeks ago. So sorry guys, I didn't realize you were going to be at the foodtruck rally! Generally pizza places have vegetarian options and it looks like they have some vegan options, too. Of course a real Italian pizza has very little (if any) cheese so you can always order a cheeseless pizza with the veggies packed on. Their crust is entirely vegan. They also have hummus. In my world that means you you put hummus on the crust and you have a sort of a pita pizza that sounds like a great foodtruck meal to me! Their crust looks absolutely delicious!
Food Fighters Bustaurant
Their vegan options are limited, but they sound tasty! They offer sriracha fries and buffalo fries.
I often bend my plantbased diet (no oil, limited salt/sugar) when I eat out, and these sound worth it.
Mason Dixon Bakery
Huntsville's completely gluten-free bakery. Employees are generally very knowledgeable and helpful to find vegan, dairyfree, or paleo options. Vegan cupcakes like the blue frosted Cookie Monster are very sweet, but absolutely delicious! Their regular white bread and their raisin toast bread are vegan. They also have some fruit and nut bars that will remind you of Larabars.
Cafe on Wheels Neon Lilly
Neon Lily brings us tasty cuisine that isn't your everyday American fare. She tells us she will be bringing the following foods: some new very reach and kosher same time salad called 'Vinegret' (potato, sweet peas, carrots, red onion, green onion... and more dressed with avocado oil. Borsch for sure, Kapusta (healthy coleslaw), shaurma with herbal seasoned rice, fresh veggies etc. She also tells us she prepares very limited quantity so preorders are the best option. Text her with your name no later than Thursday, 4pm.
I've gotten in touch with them and it sounds like these folks are trying to accomodate a variety of diets. Their beans are vegan, they offer a paleo bowl, and their nachos can be made gluten-free. Nut free and shellfish are "quarantined" so they seem allergy aware. For a vegan meal, they suggest ordering a burrito or the nachos without the animal products.
Piper & Leaf
The quintessential Southern sweet iced tea in a variety of flavors. Be sure to bring back your canning jar cup for a discount on refills of any kind. They carry a variety of tea and coffee products.
Rocket City Expresso
These folks went above and beyond with their answer, providing us with a detailed list of milks, syrups, and smoothie mixes they offer that are dairy free and fully vegan. Very helpful and nice!
Besides coffee, they have various types of teas, or their mango or strawberry smoothies can also be made vegan. When it comes to coffee drinks, they have the basics that can be ordered with either Soy or Almond milk. Unfortunately, mocha, caramel, white chocolate mocha all contain dairy. But the following are available:
Chai Tea Latte
Syrup flavors that are safe:
Creme de Menthe
Sugar Free Vanilla
Sugar Belle Cupcakes
Currently they offer no dairyfree, paleo, or vegan options. They may be offering a paleo cupcake in the future. I spoke with them about expanding their menu for those on plant based diets, so please feel free to drop them a friendly note if you would buy a vegan cupcake from them.
Sweet Home Coffee
