Vegans cooking for vegans
I think you need to make plans to visit the West Midlands before the end of the year.
As you all know, a fabulous 100% vegan food truck launched a while back called The Vegan Grindhouse. The idea behind the business was to supply events in the local area with completely plant-based tea, coffee, cakes and treats. I wrote about them here.
The truck has enjoyed an incredibly successful start, but things are about to change slightly for the vegan business.
I reached out to Lisa, the owner of The Vegan Grindhouse, to see how things were progressing and I received some not so good news and some excellent news.
Lisa wrote to me:
We have a new truck called Artie and a new menu. We are no longer selling tea and coffee as many events prohibited us from selling these if booked as a food seller. So we are now a 1950s American diner-style vegan food and milkshake bar.
Our menu highlights are quarter pounders, bacon cheeseburgers, chicken style burgers, hotdogs, chilli dogs, mac dogs, mac ‘n’ cheese, chilli and nachos, chocolate chip cookies and milkshakes.
We also sell homemade coconut based ice cream in a range of flavours.
All our products are handmade, organic and 100% vegan and we have gluten free and soy free options available too.
Sorry for tea and coffee fans but I do love the sound of that menu.

Oooh, I’m THRILLED to read this! Finally something in the Midlands so I can get there without spending a fortune or a bazillion hours on a coach!
I’ve already tried several things from the Vegan Grindhouse and they’ve all been delicious. The boyfriend is a big fan too. I live literally about 5 minutes’ walk away from the Stirchley Community Market so I’ll definitely be there to try some of the new menu!
I’m not a vegan but I still pick Lisa’s food over most other vendors at KH street, the MAC and Digbeth Diner. So, so good x
Veggies began with an all-vegan mobile catering van in Nottingham in 1984. It is brilliant to see vegans and non-vegans now supporting similar projects all over the UK. Best wishes to the Vegan Grindhouse. We hope you thrive for 30 years too.
