New vegan ‘junk food’ truck bites into East Austin trailer park

Do you want to pig out without the pig? A new vegan food truck is now open on the east side, serving out “junk food”. Nom Burgers, the beef-free idea of ​​Vegan Nom, grills a 100% plant-based menu of smashed burgers and marinated chicken sandwiches.

The menu is anchored by the OG cheeseburger, which is also available as a double pack. Burgers are made from Impossible Patties, smashed on a frying pan and topped with American “cheese”, Nom sauce, lettuce and tomato. In the meantime, the special all-day Sammy breakfast muffin with egg, sausage, provolone and chipotle aioli comes with a hash brown and is likely to be asked by guests: “McDonald’s who?”

Those looking for more traditional vegetarian dishes can order a veggie burger with hemp seed patties or grab a birdie burger, a grilled natural “chicken breast” with provolone, lettuce, tomato, and the aforementioned Nom sauce.

All sandwiches can be ordered separately or as a combination with a drink and fries for an additional charge of $ 4.99.

In addition to its vegan version of traditional fast food starters, the trailer also offers popular side dishes. Mac ‘n’ cheese, fried pickles, tater tots, buffalo wings, cheese fries, and even a vegan ranch dressing are 100 percent plant based, as can the Plant Queso and Bacon and Sausage, which can be added to sandwiches for a surcharge.

“Nom Burgers is here to give you what you crave, to help you lessen your impact on the planet while fueling your passion for great food at affordable costs,” said Chef / Owner Chris Rios in a press release.

As part of that affordability, the truck will soon be bringing out a Tuesday brown bag special. For $ 20, guests can grab two burgers and two fries. The company says it will also make monthly burger specials using new recipes from Rios.

Not that the trailer needs gimmicks to bring guests to its new room in Vegan Nom Food Park at 2324 E. Cesar Chavez St. According to a publication, August 22nd was a sold out first day for the new food truck.

Nom Burger is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
