Vegans join Toronto’s lineup of awesome food trucks

There’s something iconic about walking downtown Toronto and stopping in for some famous street food, which is often hot dogs or smokies. These types of on-the-go meals are perfect with a Blue Jays game, during a big night out, or for anyone who gets seduced by the scents wafting through the open street.

Except, maybe, if you’re vegan. Toronto Food Trucks, which is a repertoire of all Toronto’s street food carts, has announced the arrival of a 100% vegan street truck called the Vegan Extremist. Yes, that means it is entirely meat and dairy free!

This new food truck is cooking up Indian and Thai food delights with a specialty for curry dishes. The menu ranges from chana masala and baingan bharta to Thai yellow curry, samosas, and desserts. On top of it, you will be served by fine chaps dressed to the nines serving you from within a fine black truck trailer. The image of street food is making a turn towards more class and style.

The Vegan Extremist isn’t just about extreme left-wing food politics. It brings a taste of Asia right to the streets of Toronto. Street food is a popular and affordable way to eat in Southeast Asian countries like Thailand and as the sun sets, streets transform with the pop up of countless street carts and dining tables. Now you no longer need to board a 10-hour flight to tap into this authentic experience, just head out into the streets of Toronto! The Vegan Extremist lets vegans join in on the daily street feasting fun.

This vegan truck will be parked in downtown Toronto. Specific locations are not yet revealed and so the mystery is over us. At least we can romanticize the mystery and see it as the perfect opportunity to take a friend on a scavenger hunt. The reward is a tasty vegan meal. Who could resist?

Erin Cardone

Born on the Prairies, Erin Cardone grew up knowing there was more to life than canola fields and AAA Alberta Angus. So she escaped, living in Europe and Australia, white-knuckling it through plates of calf brains and raw horse meat, and learning languages she can't remember anymore. After a stint as a jaded, skeptical journalist, she changed tack and began writing rather awesome blogs and showing businesses that advertising is dead, so long live social media, with her businesses Legendary Social Media. She now splits her time between various Canadian cities, Costa Rica and wherever else the wind blows.
