Denver’s New Vegan Food Truck

Cruelty-free diners in the Mile-High City can add another vegan option to their dining lists.

Denver-area citizen Amie Arias, along with her husband, Toby Houser, recently rolled out vegan food truck Vegan Van on the streets of Jefferson County, CO. Vegan Van offers a rotating menu of cruelty-free eats, with items like the Car Wash (beer-battered nori “fish” served on a roll with dill tartar sauce), the Rock Steady (a salad of romaine topped with homemade croutons, walnut parmesan, coconut “bacon,” and vegan Caesar dressing), and Dark Chocolate Nut Butter Cups for dessert. Arias, who has worked in the restaurant industry for years, told Westword that she was first inspired to open the truck after seeing Orange County’s Seabirds Truck visit Denver during a taping of Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race in May.
