Iggi’s Texatarian: First Anniversary

Flier for Iggi’s Texatarian’s one year anniversary party

Lots of vegan food cart anniversaries lately! Iggi’s Texatarian is celebrating their first anniversary this Saturday with bands, DJs, hula hooping, a raffle, and a slip and slide. The key to fun times in Texas this time of year is water!

Music by Spells, Coma in Algiers, The Nouns, Grand Child, Leg Sweeper, BLACKIE, and The Bang Bang Theodores. As always, there will be great food from Iggi’s and alcoholic drinks and kombucha on tap from Cheer Up Charlie’s.

Iggi’s was one of the Austin businesses featured earlier this year on the Cooking Channel’s special about vegan food culture, The Veg Edge. You can see their interview towards the end of this clip. They’re also home to one of my favorite dishes in Austin.

Houston: Green Seed Vegan

Y’all, get a look at this burger. The vegan food truck trend has finally hit Houston. Green Seed Vegan is a vegan food truck near Texas Southern University. Their menu is split between cooked and raw food, and everything is 100% vegan. If you squint you can see the menu on their yelp page. (Psst, Green Seed Vegan, post your menu on your facebook and website, pretty please!)

The concept reminds me a bit of Counter Culture, though the menu offerings are completely different. Either way, it looks like they offer healthy food that still manages to be tasty and enticing. Check out this review on 29-95 and let me know what you think if you’ve been by.
