The Vegan Nom features an entirely vegan Tex-Mex menu that would make even the hardened Longhorn-eating Texan think twice.The beauty of today's vegan food is that it's not just for animal sympathizers, it's for anyone who really just loves food. Stripping dairy and meat from the menu means more creativity with the execution, which is exactly what you'll find at the taco truck The Vegan Nom. This royal-blue trailer nestled in a quaint corner of the growing North Loop district features an entirely vegan Tex-Mex menu that would make even the hardened Longhorn-eating Texan think twice. First of its kind in Austin, The Vegan Nom offers breakfast tacos and traditional tacos alike, with only the freshest, healthiest and (when available) most local ingredients around.
If Austin had an official city bird, flower and Poet Laureate, they would all be the breakfast taco. This fact is why The Vegan Nom gives you the most taco for your buck. B-fast favorites include the Vegan Chorizo and Refried Black Bean Taco and the Tempeh Bacon and Organic Tofu Scramble Taco, but customers are encouraged to get creative with their tiny bundles of happy. If you hit up the popular joint at lunchtime, must-checks are their Grilled Avocado Reale Taco with caramelized onions, refried black beans, and vegan pepper jack cheese, or if you like a little spicy something-something in your belly, try the Bean Diablo, refriend black beans, vegan chorizo, green roasted chiles, guac, and a drizzle of homemade "creamy" chipotle and verde salsa. Take one bite at The Vegan Nom and you'll be trying to convert the rest of Texas to vegan in no time.
