WE LOOK AT 4 TASTY FOOD TRUCKS LEADING THE WAY
There is a growing global interest in veganism and its appears that the 'meat substitutes' have finally gone mainstream in 2019. The big brands are piling in. Burger King has recently announced the birth of the 'Impossible Whopper'. Meanwhile Burger Fuel has already launched their plant based burger 'Beyond Beleaf' partnering with Beyond Meat, the Nasdaq listed purveyor of plant based burgers and sausages. It's shaping up nicely for the new breed of talented street food vendors in Auckland. We showcase 4 of our current vegan food truck favourites, Vege Bang Bang, Sweet As Bowl, Vege Pulse and Lulu's.

3. VEGE PULSE
Let me start by telling you that their Mediterranean Lasagna was one of our favourite vegan dishes of 2019. I'll be honest...I may have licked the bowl at the end and I have no shame in telling you all that. Vege Pulse serve a variety of fresh whole food salads, nourish bowls and a comforting classics including that 'plate licking good' lasagna All of their salads are fresh, vegan and often gluten free. They now have a permanent spot at Catalina Bay and yes, they would love to cater for you and share their passion for their vibrant plant based cuisine.
