Vegan vendors

. May 29, 2012.

Ann Arbor is set to join the ranks of New York, San Diego and Portland in cart-side cuisine. On Monday, May 9, Mark’s Carts food cart courtyard on W. Washington St. began to sizzle with seven carts of ethnic delicacies, one of which is operated by The Lunch Room. It is host to a variety of vegan breakfasts, lunches, dinners and bakery goods — including coconut milk smoothies, barbecued tofu sandwiches, cashew-cream chocolate truffles, and plenty more. If you’re not salivating yet, visit thelunchrooma2.com for a complete menu.

Mark’s Carts is home to six other mouthwatering food stands cooking everything from Asian street food to experimental pierogis (don’t worry, it’s safe). Though the courtyard is open every day from 8am to 10pm, each cart sets its own hours; with plenty of parking, feel free to wander in the wafting aromas of food until your craving has been served.
