Very Vegan Sundays at SoMa StrEat Food Park – January 2016

One of the things I love about visiting San Francisco is that there is always a vegan or vegetarian option on a restaurant menu.  SoMa StrEat Food Park is no exception!  If you don’t know what SoMa StrEat Food Park is, it’s a cool spot where food trucks park and serve up delicious, inventive food in San Francisco.  Once a month, they host Very Vegan Sundays where all the food trucks serve up strictly vegan food.  I finally got the husband to take me out to the city on a beautiful, vegan-food filled Sunday in January!

Here’s a rundown of of what we got to sample that day:

TAQUERIA LA VENGANZA

These vegan tacos definitely get my top vote for the day.  We ordered one each of the pastor and carnitas, topped off with hot sauce, cilantro, and onions – just like a damn good street taco should be made!  They also offer pineapple as a topping, but we politely declined.  My favorite was the pastor, while the husby enjoyed the carnitas.  I will definitely be returning for my taco fix.  I’m not quite sure what these are made out of (I’m guessing seitan?).  Whatever it is, even your carnivorous friends will enjoys this deliciousness.

DUM INDIAN SOUL FOOD

Dum has a variety options to choose from, such as biryani, mango lassi, and potato cakes.  We ordered something called dahi puri, which was a semolina flour puff (crispy on the outside) filled with a creamy potato filling.  This dish was actually served cold, which was unexpected!  The tamarind chutney was tasty – and be sure to ask for hot sauce.  It might seem odd, but it added a much needed flavor dimension to the dish!  It is served with yogurt – so I’m hoping it was a good non-dairy yogurt 🙂

HELLA VEGAN EATS

This was our second time trying out Hella Vegan Eats.  I love their food truck decorations! So cute.  Hella Vegan has some pretty inventive foods and on this visit, we tried the Fried Chicken & Waffles – not only vegan, but gluten free.  They serve it with lavender-sage butter and blood orange maple syrup.  When ordering, they give you the option of adding sprinkles to the waffle (get them – makes your dish looks super colorful) and to add avocado (which we declined).  This is probably the best representation of chicken and waffles I’ve had that’s vegan.  I don’t know how they do it, but they do it well.  I would definitely recommend trying this dish if you ever get the chance!

We also tried the salted caramel doughnut, which we took to go to eat at home later.  It definitely has a good flavor, but you can tell they use bananas in their baking, which is fine, but we don’t care much for banana-flavored things.  If you like a little banana flavor in your life, I’m sure you will love these!

NO NO BURGER

No No Burger has a special place in my heart.  When my husband would come to take me out on lunch dates to the farmers market in Concord, we would get our No No Burger on. They stopped serving there quite a while ago though, so I was happy to see they were back, and serving up burgers at SoMa.

We both got the Ring of Fire – because we are addicted to spicy things.  I don’t order my burgers with the no no sauce since it’s kind of like a vegan Thousand Island dressing (and I don’t like things that mimic mayo-based sauces).  Husband got the ghost-chili sauce, which is a really hot version of the no no sauce – and if he says it’s spicy, it’s very spicy, so beware!

Their buns and fries are different than what we originally had when they were in Concord, and I’m not sure why they changed them because they unfortunately aren’t as good as they used to be.  Even the burger itself doesn’t taste quite like it used to, but I’m definitely willing to give it another go because I loved their burgers so much in the past.  Heck, I got a carnivore to love a vegan burger!  They are permanently parked at SoMa for now, so you can give them a try any time!
