This one's for you, Abby.
After lusting after Abby Bean's descriptions and photos of her amazing meals and treats from the Cinnamon Snail, an entirely organic and vegan food truck, I promised myself I would track it down one of these days. As a food truck, they move around a lot (uh duh) and I've never been in the right neighborhood, or close enough, to get to on my lunch break.
TODAY, however, they were parked in Union Square until 3 and I ran over on my break, seriously giddy with anticipation. They were definitely the only food truck with a crowd outside of it, but there wasn't much of a wait time before devouring my sandwich:
This was the special, Golden Lemongrass Tofu with Thai basil roasted eggplant, sriracha roasted peanuts, arugula and kaffir lime coconut chutney. Um, yeah.
I absconded with the sandwich (and a beer-glazed donut for G) to a relatively quiet corner of the park so as to not embarass too many people who had to watch me scarf that monster down. I'd heard so much about Cinnamon Snail at this point and followed them and their menus on Facebook that it was almost incredible to finally have a sandwich in my hands. I half-expected someone to snatch it back like, "Sorry, can't have it. It was just a mistake." My heart may have leapt when Adam himself called my name to give me the order. Vegan celebrity crush, for sure.
ANYWAY so as you can probably guess, the sandwich was amazing. Seriously. And huge. But I ate it all, dripping whatever on my shorts and hardly even caring.
As for the donut, G described it only as "seriously intense."
Maybe he can clarify for you all later. Oh! And, Allysia, they actually had apple cider donuts like the ones I was talking about lusting after! I was considering going back to get one, but I didn't bring my "pastry carryall" like Abby has...
Totally beats the last food truck experience.
