Vegan Shmegan — The Cinnamon Snail Truck Is The Bombby whealtheats on Apr 25, 2012 • 3:02 pm No Comments
The Cinnamon Snail Truck claims its food inspires PEACE and BLISS. Are you non-vegans out there skeptical? Me too! Nevertheless, I tracked the truck down after my friend (also non-vegan) raved about the vanilla bourbon creme brulee doughnuts and the red curry grilled tofu bahn mi (both of which made my mouth instantly salivate upon description). As food trucks often do, this one moves around daily. To locate the truck, follow them on FB or Twitter (set up Twitter to get email and text updates).
I found the truck right after noon, and although the line wasn’t huge yet, there were about 15 people already there, waiting patiently as the two men in the truck simultaneously took and delivered orders while laughing and joking with their customers. First impression — these guys love their job and people clearly love them. So, check 1 for Peace and Bliss even before tasting the food. Check 2 for their time saver order ahead option — if you are in a hurry, you can place an order in advance by calling, texting, or emailing your order before heading to the truck. (Make sure you wait for a confirmation).
Now, on to the food. . . the menu, which changes seasonally (or on whim by the truck owners), is found on the truck and on their website. The menu is an eccletic mix of breakfast, lunch and desserts. The breakfast options include a creative mix of pancakes, burritos, waffles, and platters. Lunch consists of large stuffed sandwiches with various international flares — a touch of asian or creole spice, a hint of barbeque, or a pop of sweet maple mustard on various grains. Other lunch options include raw goodness in the form of a spicy asian salad or nutty raw pizza. Desserts options are flawless — raw chocolate pudding, raw brownie, macaroons, raspberry bars, donuts and pastries galore. So many of the options screamed out to me that I had a difficult time narrowing down my order.
The Fiery Southeast asian salad made my nose run and put some fire in my belly, but I’ll tell you — it was so good I couldn’t stop eating it. The maple mustard tempeh sandwich was nothing short of amazing . Mmmmm, on to desserts…the raw chocolate pudding — creamy goodness — and the raspberry bar — a perfect combo of sweet and savory — both hit the spot.
I’ll put it this way . . . I could eat raw food daily if the Cinnamon Snail Truck made all my food. They are now on my Twitter feed and I have a list of options I want to try. Haven’t converted to full fledged vegan yet, but I’m feeling Peaceful and Blissful just thinking about their food!
