Las Vegas Gets Its First Vegan Hot Dog Cart

Bacon-topped vegan hot dogs are sizzling on the streets of Sin City, thanks to newcomer Phyto’s Vegan Eats.


Vegan couple Anibal and Monica Flores recently launched Phyto’s Vegan Eats, the first all-vegan hot dog cart on the streets of Las Vegas. The cart serves three hot dogs varieties: fakin’ bacon-topped Crispy Cowboy, jalapeno-spiked El Guey, and Korean-inspired Kimchi Kool; and a do-it-yourself dog that can be topped with items such as crispy onions, relish, and crushed chips. “It is very rare as a vegan to be able to walk to a street cart and order vegan food, and we want to change that,” Monica Flores told local media outlet Vegans Baby. “It’s a simple comfort food that people of all ages enjoy, whether vegan or non-vegan, and we are so happy to be able to bring something like this to such a loving and supportive community.” Once the couple secures a production kitchen, they plan to expand the Phyto menu to include plant-based dishes such as Shepherd’s Pie, ramen, curries, pizza, and tacos.
