Austin Texas is rich in food places every traveler (or anybody else for that matter) would definitely need to try out and enjoy. I wanted to focus on the vegan places to dine at and share them to everyone who’s interested in eating healthy on the go. I’m so excited to share with you my first eat out review!
The Vegan Nom is a taco food truck on Austin’s eastside off Cesar Chavez. It’s mostly tacos and your Tex Mex faves like vegan chips and nachos and guacamole. You can choose from the menu or build your own taco. Everyday there’s a special “$2 Taco” and today’s was “Migas”.
I tend to shy away from faux cheese or processed vegan foods but I was feeling adventurous and decided to try the Migas. I liked it, the tofu scramble was the right texture and the combo of cheeses, chips and bell peppers was delicious. I think it’s a great choice for someone who is new to vegan food but willing to try something kind of familiar. The salsas provided, one green and one orange, weren’t that spicy. I also had the spinach, mushrooms and caramelized onion taco and that was definitely more my style but it was not seasoned and a little bland but I’m a fan of the use of whole foods. I wish the salsas had more flavor because that would be an easy fix.
We also tried the chips and nacho cheese. I honestly didn’t care much for it because it is served room temperature like a hummus and I prefer nacho cheese piping hot but Thomas seemed to like it.
The grand finale and probably the highlight of the food was the dessert: vegan Twinkies! Super sweet, oily and incredibly delicious with our coffees from Sister Coffee next door. Thomas had a Grilled Avocado Royals off of the Signature Tacos menu which he says he always gets so it must be good.
I can’t say right off the bat that I am a fan of The Vegan Nom but I’ll most definitely come explore more of the menu.
Looking forward to my next eat out adventure and I surely will be sharing my review! Stay healthy!
