Since city hall opened the floodgates in 2010, the street-food scene in Vancouver has grown by leaps and bounds. Now, there are more than 130 food trucks and carts selling everything from bibimbap to waffles.

Two of Vancouver’s food trucks are fully vegan. As well, a number of other vendors serve delicious vegan-friendly eats (free of meat, fish, eggs, dairy, and honey) alongside omnivore and vegetarian offerings.

Here’s the Veg Coast list of the top 10 vegan options from food trucks in Vancouver. Five of these flavorsome items are gluten-free too.
