Vegan Van hits the streets
This past spring, we reported that Amie Arias was launching a new food truck -- an all-vegan truck, as it happens. Although it wasn't ready for the planned June launch, the Vegan Van finally made its first run last Wednesday. (The mobile food unit license from the city was issued November 17.)
And it was back on the streets today.
The Vegan Van has a dozen or so items on its winter menu; its Facebook page and Twitter feeds will let you know what the van is serving that day, and where. But between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Wednesdays, you can usually find it at Fifth Avenue and Santa Fe, along with a handful of other food trucks.
The Planet Rock: spicy tofu strips and ranch celery-slaw on a roll.
The Rock Steady: A Caesar-style salad with romaine, walnut parmesan, Caesar dressing, housemade croutons and coconut "bacon."
The Freak Out: veggie balls, herbed marinara amd spinach cashew ricotta on a garlic roll.
