Miami Vegan Food Truck

The south Florida city’s first vegan food truck opened yesterday.

Miami residents can now get vegan soyrizo and pepperjack macaroni and cheese, fried green tomatoes, watermelon cornbread, fried chicken, and sweet potato fries from a roaming food truck. Mac’n, the city’s first 100-percent vegan food truck, opened yesterday. Co-owners Francesca Lacuesta and Mark Jennings plan to attend food-truck events around the city and partner with nightclubs and bars to offer their soul food-inspired snacks. “I’m confident because my food is good. Not everyone wants to eat a burger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. People are inherently open to trying new things,” Lacuesta tells the Miami New Times.
