Veggie Truckin'

Bay Area Food Trucks from a Vegetarian Perspective

The Big List of Trucks February 15, 2012

Filed under: food trucks — Laura @ 10:23 pm

Now that I’ve eaten at over 150 mobile vendors (trucks, carts, and booths at street food festivals), I figured it was time to make a comprehensive list of all the food trucks where I’ve eaten. I’ve broken them down into location and then put them into alphabetical order. I’ve also included a link for each vendor if possible, although there were a few that couldn’t be found anywhere on the internet. If you’d like details about any particular vendor, let me know!

  1. […] miss Veggie Truckin’ Laura’s Big List™ of the 100 food trucks she’s been to. How many have you […]

  2. Laura, you are utterly awesome! Congratulations on the 100 trucks! I had lunch with Bill, Kyle, and Dan yesterday; Bill asked, “Where do you find trucks to try?”

    “Usually on” was my honest answer!


  3. HI! I am throwing a 55th surprise birthday party for my newly vegan dad. We are looking into hiring a food truck to cater the event. I was hoping that you would have some suggestions! Please let me know asap. Thanks!


    • Laura Says:

      Thanks for asking, Gianna! The first truck that came to mind was Little Green Cyclo. They will make almost any of their dishes with tofu, so they’re definitely one of the local trucks with the most vegetarian options. (Most Asian cuisine is dairy-free as well.) Everything from Liba Falafel is vegetarian, but they tend to stay in SF and Oakland. You also might consider House of Siam on Wheels, BBQ Kalbi, or MoGo BBQ, as all three will substitute tofu in most of their dishes. I hope this helps!

    Hey, two veggies running a regular food truck event in Los Gatos on Friday, April, 27, 2012, at the La Hacienda site on scenic Highway nine. If you have a chance, come on by and look for Curtis Wright or Russ Stanley to give us your ideas on how to make our events more veggie friendly. We hope to have more at the site on a regular basis.

    • Laura Says:

      Nice! Do you know which trucks will be there?

      • Bill Says:

        Dang! So sorry I’ll be out of town!

      • A. Curtis Wright Says:

        There are two more coming, I think a lobster one. We want to make sure we get a veggie/health speciality one for the next event or maybe even this one. This is our first event, so it is a little crazy.

        Curry Up Now
        Pollo Fritto
        Project Cupcake
        Los Altos Tacos
        House of Siam
        Bigg Shrimpn

  5. A. Curtis Wright Says:

    The event at La Hacienda went very well over 1000+ people showed up. Nice band, and lots of seating. We will be trying to set this up to be a weekly event. Looking on veggie trucking for possibilities in the future. Thanks for a lovely site.

  6. A. Curtis Wright Says:

    We are having another Food truck event at La Hacienda site near Los Gatos on May 11th (with the Fabulous Cruisetones providing the music). We are trying to have more veggie opportunities (hopefully with every truck). I saw Gorditas Universalis above, but try as I might, could not find out any contact info 😦 Do you have any? Current Lineup is:

    Mo Bowls
    House of Siam
    Speedi Panni
    Twisted Chill
    Arabian Bites
    Shack Mobile
    Pollo Frito

    The first three have nice veggie options, the fourth is ice cream/yogurt, the fith has limited veggie options, the Shack Mobile is seafood (if you are a pesca ova veggie like me), and the last has no veggie option.

    • Laura Says:

      Sadly, I have no contact info for Gorditas. In fact, the last few times I’ve tried to go they haven’t been at their regular location. Regardless, they don’t move from the one lot where they serve, so I doubt they would come out for your events 😦

      That looks like a pretty good lineup. As far as I know, Arabian Bites has no vegetarian options though. At least, every time I’ve asked they’ve said they don’t and that they’re “working on one”. Since I work in the East Bay, Los Gatos tends to be a little far to travel after a long week on a Friday night, but hopefully I’ll be able to visit if these continue into the summer!
