Wilmington, North Carolina Gets Its First Vegan Food Truck
The Hardcore Hippie made its debut this month in Wilmington, North Carolina.
If you live in the Wilmington area, you’ve probably been thrilled at the upsurge of vegan restaurants (and vegan options at traditional restaurants) over the past couple of years. And now, Wilmington, North Carolina is getting its first vegan food truck: The Hardcore Hippie!
Vegan Options in Wilmington, North Carolina
The Hardcore Hippie is a unique concept. The entirely plant-based menu is currently available once a week at the popular local food truck NachoFalt. Keith Gissubel—founder of The Hardcore Hippie—has been trying out his vegan recipes at NachoFalt for the past couple of months, and they’ve been so popular that the NachoFalt owners decided to give The Hardcore Hippie full use of the truck one day a week to bring more vegan options to Wilmington!
For those concerned about cross-contamination, don’t worry, The Hardcore Hippie uses completely separate knives, cutting boards, and containers for its vegan food. The entire food truck also gets an extensive top-to-bottom cleaning before its transformation from NachoFalt to The Hardcore Hippie.
Vegan Food Under $10
Some items that can be found at the Hardcore Hippie include a chickpea “2na” salad, BLT sandwiches made with coconut bacon, and sweet potato tacos drizzled with cashew cheese. No fake meats are used at the truck—all menu items are made from whole food, plant-based ingredients.
Everything at the Hardcore Hippie can be ordered for under or around $10, as Gissubel wants to dispel the myth that eating plant-based and healthy has to be expensive by providing affordable vegan options to the Wilmington community.
After completely selling out of their first event at Hi Wire Brewing on September 1, The Hardcore Hippie will be back to the local brewery three weekends in October. You can catch them there on October 10, 23, and 30. On October 16, they’ll be at the New Riverfront Park for the Veg-Out Festival from 11am-5pm.
