These 6 Vegan Food Vendors at Coachella Will Make You Hungry AF
*MFA supporter and Coachella enthusiast David Gangel gives us the lowdown on eating vegan at Coachella.
In just under a week, 100,000 people will flock to California’s high desert to attend the premier event of the summer season: Coachella. GOLDENVOICE, Coachella’s organizer and our co-producer for CIRCLE V, the world’s first vegan music festival, has stepped up its plant-based party game. If you’re going, the awesome roster of vegan eats cannot be missed!
Check out some of our favorites: 1. ERVEN Location: Rose Garden
Serving up globally inspired, organic plant-based dishes, Erven will satiate hungry festivalgoers with their signature Beer Battered Tofu & Manchamantel Sauce Sandwich, Hominy Ceviche Tostada, and crisp Israeli Salad. Feeling parched? Grab one of their Fresh Pressed Green Juices.
2. RAMEN HOOD Location: Rose Garden
Ramen Hood is certain to be one of the most popular booths this year. They’re keeping their menu simple: Classic Ramen or Rice Bowl. When you’re done slurping down those tasty noodles, enjoy some of their own refreshing watermelon or mango soft serve.
ALSO! They have a vegan Pomme Frites booth on the boardwalk!
3. KINDRED POP-UP Location: VIP
Their four-course menu will get you a Salad, Chargrilled Seitan Skewers, a Memphis Jackfruit Sandwich or a Seared Cauliflower Steak, and for dessert, a Short Stack of Silver Dollar Pancakes drenched in bourbon butterscotch. YUM! Reservations through opentable.com.
4. TAQUERIA LA VENGANZA Location: Rose Garden
This one’s worth the wait, no matter how long the line is. Chef Raul Medina will be cooking up a Taco Trio (vegan carne asada, carnitas, and al pastor), Carne Asada Fries, Taquitos, and of course, the dish that made them famous: their Signature Burrito.
5. ROCCO’S SWEET SHOPPE Location: Boardwalk
Rocco’s is keeping it simple by offering just their most popular cookie, The Sonoran Cowboy, and to give sun-exhausted patrons much-needed refreshment, watermelon and strawberry fruit pops. Hit ’em up after dancing in the Sahara tent.
6. BACKYARD BOWLS Location: VIP
Go a little too hard the night before? No problem. They have acai bowls, smoothies chock-full of all the good stuff, and just about everything else you need to get back on your feet and back out on the field.
