Ten Tasty New Vegan Food Trucks, Pop-Ups and Other Mobile Vendors

Since we rounded up vegan food trucks around Colorado last year, there's been an explosion of plant-based trucks, pop-ups and other mobile vendors on the scene. Diners are making their demand for well-made vegan cuisine loud and clear, and chefs are hitting the streets with sandwiches, tacos, Japanese specialties and more.

Here are ten new food trucks and pop-ups serving plant-based food that you should hunt down now.

Migration Taco

Migration Tacos



Migration Tacos launched this year with two goals: save the birds and serve up delicious plant-based tacos. To achieve the latter, traditional tacos, such as seitan carne asada and garbanzo chorizo, are served alongside tacos with a twist, including seitan buffalo wing with bleu cheese. To try these, as well as nachos smothered in cheese and guacamole, follow the truck on Instagram.

The Veggie Yeti isn’t just looking to feed vegans. Owners Ben Como and Jared Simpson hope their hearty cheeseburgers, soups, wraps and panini will get meat-eaters to think twice about plant-based cuisine. Their specialty is classic comfort foods, including mac and cheese and nachos smothered in cheese sauce, housemade sour cream, jalapeños, green onions, black beans, corn and olives. Track the Veggie Yeti down on Instagram.
