Vegan Van

Many food trucks have exploded on the scene, and not all of them have been in it for the long haul. But the Vegan Van, which first hit the streets in November 2011, now has a steady route of regular stops where people make a point of showing up to try whatever seasonal favorites chef Amie Arie brought with her that day. (If you’re curious, Arie is usually very good about updating her whereabouts and goods on Facebook and Twitter.) The selections tend toward vegan slants on such American favorites as Buffalo wings, corned beef hash and meatballs, but you can also get soups and salads – and everything you order from the Vegan Van is plant-based and cruelty-free, to boot. You can often find the van parked at such vegan/vegetarian mainstays as Nooch Vegan Market and the pop-up favorite Neat Market, but it also has a loyal following at its regular brewery stops, too.
