Even though vegan food is made of things that grow in the dirt, it can get pretty pricey in a restaurant setting. For something delicious and reasonable, head to Peddler Brewing Company and grab some dinner from the Cycle Dogs food truck. The dogs themselves - made with wheat gluten and lots of spices - are from Field Roast, so they’re basically local meatless gold, and come loaded with toppings like grilled corn, mayo, green onion, and lime. Get a breakfast dog with an entire hash brown patty, vegan chorizo, chipotle mayo, and grilled onions, along with a side of addicting crinkle fries for about 11 bucks. You’ll like these things even if you’re an omnivore (especially after an IPA or two).
