PETA’s Top Five Vegan-Friendly Food Trucks

Just like veganism, food trucks are becoming more popular across the country. Whether you’re looking for a quick snack or a meal to fill you up, you’re sure to run into a food truck somewhere along the way. The best part is that many of these trucks offer vegan-friendly foods that are simply delicious and, of course, cruelty-free! Don’t believe us? Check out PETA’s Top Five Vegan-Friendly Food Trucks list and see for yourself.

The Cinnamon Snail

The Cinnamon Snail’s mobile vegan restaurant, located in Hoboken, New Jersey, is loaded with delicious organic gourmet foods for breakfast, lunch, and even dessert.

Whether you’re enjoying the savory Blue Corn Pancakes (served with pine-nut butter and Vermont maple syrup), the Coconut French Toast (with sweet brown butter, rum-simmered cranberries, and dark beer syrup), or the Korean Barbeque Seitan (served open faced on a grilled tortilla slathered with chili butter, kimchi, and greens), you’re in for a treat. Quench your thirst with The Cinnamon Snail’s organic fresh-squeezed Live Lemonade. If you have room for dessert, try one of their Miniature Cheesecakes. The Cinnamon Snail’s scrumptious menu varies seasonally, giving you a chance to enjoy many dishes throughout the year.


Ste Martaen & Soul Vegetarian Vegan Food Truck

The next time that you’re hanging in the Windy City, don’t pass by the irresistible aromas of Ste Martaen & Soul Vegetarian’s vegan food truck.

Try the Chicago Cheesesteak with sizzling seitan, grilled poblano peppers, and onions and topped with a delicious three-“cheese” sauce. If you’re not stuffed, check out the Basil Focaccia Sandwich, marinated and baked tofu, sliced Ste Martaen cheese, and grilled red peppers and onions on fresh-baked basil focaccia bread. If you’re looking for something sweet, try the vegan carrot cake and other desserts. The truck’s menu varies daily to satisfy your cravings.

Sunny Vibrations

Sunny Vibrations brings warm and satisfying vegan meals to the San Francisco Bay Area with its healthy, eco-friendly entrées that even meat-eaters can’t resist. You can start with the mouth-watering Pizaa Burger, which is loaded with flavor. Also try the Veggie Ka-bobs and the WOK This Way stir-fry with brown rice. If that’s not enough, check out the Baba Wrap—roasted eggplant and red pepper, cucumber, lettuce, onion, pickles, artichokes, and cilantro—which makes a great midday snack.


The Seabirds food truck is all about affordable, healthy, and delicious foods for residents of the Orange County, California, area. The delicious foods on Seabirds’ menu are 100 percent plant-based and vary according to season. Seabirds’ Beer Battered Avocado Taco is a fan-favorite! It consists of a fried avocado wedge topped with shredded cabbage, red onion, and creamy jalapeno sauce. Yum! The Locals Burrito is also a must-try. If that doesn’t awaken your taste buds, sink your teeth into the delicious Jerk Jackfruit Taco, which consists of jerk-seasoned jackfruit topped with onion, cilantro, and green salsa. Head on over to Seabirds if you’re looking for a good meal!

Like No Udder

There’s nothing like running to the world’s first soft-serve vegan ice cream truck that’s really “like no udder”! We couldn’t miss out on adding this 100 percent dairy-free food truck serving Providence, Rhode Island, and surrounding cities in Massachusetts. Satisfy your sweet tooth with these tempting vegan treats. If you’re a chocolate fanatic, then check out Like No Udder’s Chocolate-Peanut Butter Shake or the Chocolate Soft-Serve Ice Cream, both of which are sure to take you to a happy place. You can even enjoy a classic root beer float and vegan candy bars and slushies.

Our Honorable Mention

Green Truck

If there’s one thing that you can say about Green Truck, it’s that it stands for healthy living for all beings as well as the entire planet. Located in the San Diego area, you can spot Green Truck in a town or city nearby serving certified organic foods that can benefit everyone!

So be sure to try Green Truck’s signature Mother Trucker® Vegan Burger, made with local vegetables and topped with fresh-cut sunflower sprouts, sliced heirloom tomatoes, onion, and Trucker® sauce. For something light, you can snack on the Fresh Pita Chips and Hummus, made from organic pita chips and house-made hummus, or the Blue Corn Tortilla Chips and Pineapple Pico de Gallo.
