    You need to know exactly what the Admiral Ackbar is because it's so important and you'll eat it and it will blow your mind: it's a candied Brazil nut shortbread with dark chocolate ganache and caramel

    Get the seasonal donuts because they're seasonal and all delicious. Today they had apple caramel crumb and pumpkin with maple spice glaze. Why blaze it when u can glaze it?

    The Thanksgiving sandoo is heaven in a grilled baguette: Porcini simmered seitan, marinated kale, grilled fennel stuffing, cranberry/orange relish and garlic aioli. It's a party in your mouth!

    Fresh plum pancakes w/chamomile blood orange syrup, smoked almonds, (pinenut butter, instead of cardamom butter for me) candied lemon flavor nirvana in a recyclable paper box

    Recognizable even from distance because of their color scheme, multi-vendy award winner! Lunch food as well as sweets are great. If you want cinnamon snail make sure to go earlier in the day

    The most awesome food truck ever! Everything I've ever tried is amazing. I'm working my way through the menu one item at a time! The seitan tarts are so tasty. This truck is every vegans dream.

    Best food truck in NYC hands down. Even carnivores love it. Follow them on FB and Twitter to see where they are. All vegan deliciousness with many gluten free options.

    The long lines are more than worth the wait. Non vegans will be confounded by how much they enjoy eating tofu when it's prepared by Cinnamon Snail! Vegans will weep. Try every donut.

    Crazy lines most days of the week, but way better on Saturdays when they're parked in front if Trader Joe's in USQ. The plum pancakes are delish, and everything is vegan and organic! YUM.

    Everything is fantastic. Try: Korean BBQ seitan, creole tofu sub, Thai BBQ tempeh, five spice seitan, & maple mustard tempeh. All the donuts and cinnamon snails too.

    It can be overwhelming deciding what to get, especially of you're veg and used to only having a few options. Pro tip: everything is delicious. And don't forget dessert. Those donuts will haunt you.

    Always a treat when it's in your hood! The crème brûlée donut gets a lot of attention and it's totally deserved. All the pastries are awesome. I think it's cash only.

    Amazing food truck option for vegans. The line can be lengthy, but it's worth the wait for the Korean BBQ Seitan sandwich.

    Everything's delicious, which is a problem for chronically indecisive ppl. Ancho chili burger and creole tofu sandwich are winners. Don't forget dessert: Makers Mark donut / Cinnamon Snail.

    Try the maple pecan waffles... dense and different from your normal waffles but very good! Share with a friend because $9 gets you 2 waffles each the size of your face.

    The special is always great. So is the Korean BBQ. No wrong turns here. But if you get coffee, ask for extra hot, as it runs on the cooler side.

    Avoid going between 11:30 and 1:30 (especially 12-1) if you want to avoid the really long lines (up to 20 minutes). It's worth the wait though, if that's when you have to go.

    Don't let the fact that it's vegan food scare you off. Whether you're vegan or not, it is the best food you will ever have. I guarantee it.
  • Burger Weekly
    Burger WeeklyJanuary 9, 2014 Even though there was FAR too much arugula, the seitan patty remained a decent substitute for real food (meat).

    Try the the Maple Mustard Tempeh! Also known for their amazing donuts! All the bread is a gluten-free!

    It's like food truck heaven... I just wish the lines were shorter. It will take quite a while to get a bite If you go too late in the afternoon.

    Their sandwiches and breakfast offerings are amazing, but make sure to try some of their baked goods too! The raw chocolate pudding is also DIVINE.

    Every Sunday, catch the Snail at the Red Bank farmers market, 9-2. Anything you get will be among the best things you've ever eaten, vegetarian or otherwise.

    You can get just about any dish on greens instead of bread, but be warned, they don't do a very good job of removing the stems from the kale.
