Just before we went out of town for the holidays, we had a beautiful, sunny afternoon in Austin, just right for eating outside. It was the perfect time to try Vegan Yacht!
The Vegan Yacht is a food trailer that sits in a little trailer court in East Austin, along with half a dozen other trailers selling everything from wood-fired brick oven pizza to Japanese street food. I attempted to eat at Vegan Yacht a couple of times in the past, but they seem to keep odd hours. I was excited to find them open for business.
I ordered a sandwich called The Leftovers, because it's meant to mimic Thanksgiving leftovers. It contained thin slices of seitan, tomato, lettuce, Veganaise, and cranberry chutney. I really liked the texture of the seitan, nice and chewy. I also enjoyed the mild sweetness from the cranberry sauce. I would have appreciated a higher seitan-to-lettuce ratio -- I found myself hungry again a couple hours later -- but it was a tasty sandwich, and I'm looking forward to trying some of their other offerings soon.
The kids loved eating outside. I will take them on more trailer food exploratory expeditions soon if this nice weather continues.
I just thought Tony's can of Mountain Dew deserved a photo. It was all cute and retro-looking.
