Vegan MoFo: Vegan Beer Fest Food Trucks

I had an amazing food adventure at Vegan Beer Fest.  Yes I said food adventure.  I felt like I was in vegan heaven. The food offered by the trucks was mind boggling.  Add beer to that and what more could a gal want.  Although I didn't sample everything I did try at least one item from every truck. There were so many options where to start?


Doomie's had some wonderful looking options and my friend had already tried their Jalapeno poppers so off I went.

What's not to love with a sign like this

The woman sitting near us suggested we get these.  She couldn't stop raving about them so this was one of our must get items from Doomies. They were fantastic.

Buffalo Legs from Doomie's (so popular they sold out)

The cupcake was sinfully good.  Moist, light, fluffy and chocolate everything I could want.

Amalia's cupcakes (to die for)


A Vegan Beerfest special from Yalla.  I was enjoying the food so much I forgot to make note of the name.... ooppps.  Just know it was scrumptious.

Chipotle Spicy Falafel from Yalla


Seabirds Menu (drool)

Taco decadences.  The creamy richness of the avacado mmmmmm.

Had to show a picture of our Beer fest mug with food of course
First time I've ever tried Jackfruit I'm sold!

Spicy Pumpkin Muffin from Seabirds truck

These spring rolls from Mandoline Grill were out of this world.  I heard someone compare the crunch of the spring roll to a churro which was right on the money but the banana just puts it over the top.

The Fresh Fries were fantastic.  My friends and I split an order.

Such a cute logo

We ate our Frankenstand frank so fast I didn't get a picture of it but it was great.

This was so much fun.  Well organized, no outrageous lines, delicious beer & food, meeting new people and music to boot.  I hope it becomes an annual event..  A good time was had by all.  Thanks again to everyone's hard work for putting this event together.  Maybe I'll see you there next year.


Just to show you a little of the beer too!
