New Vegan Food Truck Opens in Duluth, Minnesota
The expression may be “going cold turkey” but this Minnesota new vegan food truck owner went cold goose, Grumpy Goose that is, when he went vegan nearly two years ago!
Almost two years ago, Josh Gosar stopped by a South Carolina restaurant (The Reizod Vegan Experience), and they challenged him to go vegan for 21 days. Opting to up the ante and take on the task for three months, not only has Gosar not looked back, he’s now creating his own spot. The diner-based vegan food opened his eyes to a world outside of salads and “rabbit food” often misassociated with a vegan diet, and showed he could still indulge in all of his favorite comfort foods, without sacrificing flavor. Not only that, when he went to the doctor for a checkup, his blood pressure and cholesterol had dropped dramatically, and he even lost weight!
Duluth Vegan Food Truck
Gosar’s wife, Carly, is a nearly lifelong vegetarian turned vegan, and the pair have been on the hunt for the best vegan eats Minnesota and beyond has to offer. In that search, the pair found an old food truck and embarked on a 30-hour road trip to retrieve it from Houston, Texas. Months of upgrades went into both the truck and curating a menu of plant-based foodie favorites. Now Gosar is operating the truck in Duluth, Minnesota with a rotating menu of comfort food classics, available each weekend.
Vegan Burgers, Nachos, and More
Menu options include burgers topped with fried onion rings, flavor-packed gyros, cheezy nachos, gooey mac ‘n’ cheese, a chicken crunchwrap, s’mores cookies, loaded fries, and even a kids’ menu dubbed “Little Goslings” that comes with a cheeseburger, fries, and juice box. All menu items are run through Gosar’s non-vegan 18-year-old son, making sure the vegan swaps match up to the flavor standards of any meat eater.
Plant-based or plant-curious, you can’t go wrong with Grumpy Goose, and your belly will be feeling anything but grumpy after a visit. For the latest schedule and menu updates, follow Grumpy Goose on Facebook (@thegrumpygoosetruck).
