Vegan Options at SactoMoFo 6

The next Sacramento Mobile Food Festival is coming up this Saturday, so I sent messages to most of the vendors asking if they'd be offering any vegan menu items. Here's what I've found out so far. I'll post any updates on my Sacramento Vegan Facebook page.

Addy's Paella will prepare one pan of vegan and gluten-free paella. Don't know how long that one pan will last, so if you want vegan paella, you'd better get there early!

KoJa Kitchen will be serving Teriyaki Zen with Pineapple. This is described on their menu as "Portabello mushroom and soy vegan/gluten free patty, with caramelized pineapple, sesame vinaigrette lettuce, drizzled with our teriyaki sauce, and served on garlic rice buns."

Juice On will be offering -- you guessed it -- juice! All of their juices are vegan, raw, and organic.

DavePops will be selling both LukePops (all vegan) and DavePops. The only two flavors of DavePops that are not vegan are Mint Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Chocolate Toffee Chip. Dave did make some vegan Mint Chocolate Chip DavePops for Earth Day this past weekend, though, and he has a few left that he will sell at SactoMoFo. If you get there early enough, you might be able to get one.

OMG! Yogurt will have shaved ice.

Swabbies on the River doesn't really have any vegan specialties on their menu, but they'll have Boca Burgers available and they can prepare tacos without cheese.

Gameday Grill will be offering a grilled zucchini-based veggie sandwich, with sautéed peppers & onions, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles.

La Mex Taqueria will have vegetarian tacos and burritos, but be sure to ask them to leave off the cheese and sour cream.

The Spicy Grill responded to my request for information about their menu by saying they would have "VEGI" items. I asked if that meant vegan, and got another response saying they would have "VEGI." Not sure what that means, so if you decide to try their Afghani/Indian/Pakistani cuisine, you may need to ask some probing questions about their ingredients.

Smoothie Patrol will have a few vegan smoothies. They will probably offer the Razzle Dazzle (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, orange juice, and ice) and the Mango Madness (mangoes, pineapples, peaches, orange juice, and ice).

Dave's Dawgs says they will be serving smart dogs (veggie dogs with no GMO).

The Chairman's vegan bun is not advertised but is always available on their food truck. It consists of their regular steamed bun with their house-pickled carrots, cucumbers and daikon radish, along with bok choy and their house-made tofu sauce.

Vegan options may be available at some of the other food trucks too, but I've only listed the ones who responded to me. SactoMoFo's Facebook page lists Drewski's as one of the food trucks that will be offering vegetarian/vegan items, but Drewski's has not responded to my inquiries about their menu.

To help you avoid wasting time in a long line for nothing, who definitely won't be offering anything vegan? OM Karmabile, Krush Burger, Green Papaya, and OMG Burger. And Annie's SnoBiz can't guarantee that any of their menu options are vegan.

SactoMoFo 6 will be held under the freeway at 6th and W from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Parking is $3.00, but if you bring a non-perishable food donation for Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, you can park for free. A map of the event is available at this link:
