Now Fort St Davids has never been and probably never will be vegan. But as we dabble creatively in vegetarianism, we are super duper excited about the new lunch truck right outside the office on 33rd between Chestnut and Market. The menu reads like any other average joe, super-american, hi-rise apartment, video game den, beanbag chair, weekends at the beach, fast food lunch truck, but in big chalk letters at the bottom it says “DON’T WORRY, IT’S VEGAN!!”. For your convenience, FSD was able to memorize the menu on their first time by it: Burgers, Bacon Cheeseburgers, Big D Burgers (which is the double with all kinds of special toppings), Grilled Chicken sandwiches, Fried Chicken sandwiches, Fried Fish Filet sandwiches, BBQ Rib sandwiches, Hot Dogs, Milkshakes, Hash Browns, Fries, and natural sodas. Sure, we could just walk down to the Magic Carpet truck, if we wanted to wait in line for a half an hour and spend twice as much. These guys are new and therefore we haven’t seen anyone (besides FSD) there at all. The food is delicious, but you can still tell it’s healthy; the buns are whole wheat,the sauces seem extremely well thought-out, and even the hashbrowns seem baked. Don’t quote us on that though.
The guy even asked me “please don’t tell me your jacket says ‘Bones’ on it”…which we thought was weird, because not only has Bader said that exact same line to FSD, but Father Gibbs did too while we were visiting Cincinnatti. It turns out this vegan guy is just really into the show “Bones”, and “thinks about it every second of every day.” His accent is some kind of cross between British, Australian, Californian, and Stoned. Check it out and let us know what you think. Oh and the food too.
