The Cinnamon Snail Food Truck


Bold, organic, vegan food wins the People’s Taste Award 2012!

During NYC's prime time lunch rush, dozens of New Yorkers scramble from their desks, navigate their way out of the building and contemplate what's for lunch. They look left and see Chipotle in the distance, Starbucks on their immediate right, and 10 feet in front of them are a slew of food trucks anticipating the arrival of hungry patrons. Does this sound familiar?

As the clock keeps ticking, these New Yorkers let out a sigh of relief when they finally spot their favorite food vendor, and by favorite, you know I'm talking about The Cinnamon Snail.


CROWD PLEASER:

With food trucks on the rise in NYC, food aficionados have made a statement by voting The Cinnamon Snail, winner of the People’s Taste Award at the 8th Annual Vendy Awards

Tip #1

Tip the “TIP JAR”: ALL TIPS ARE DONATED TO CHARITY! On August 26, 2012, The Cinnamon Snail team made a generous donation of $8,000 to Farm Sanctuary.

Tip #2

Tracking their Location: Stalk them on Tweat.it (NYC Food Truck App), Twitter (@VeganLunchTruck), and/or Facebook (The Cinnamon Snail); they are a moving target 5-6 times per week in NYC and they offer pick-up orders in Red Bank, NJ from 5-6pm Monday-Friday.

Tip #3

Bulk Order in Advance: For large orders, contact them via phone, text, email and/or visit them at the truck (yes, they do take the time to speak to their customers). Be kind by giving them 4 days in advance to prep!

Tip #4

Best Time to Visit: Early Bird Gets The… Pancakes! Visit the truck prior to 11:30am to ensure your favorite meal; if you don’t have a favorite yet, just come by the truck before 3pm to try the selection that’s available (everything is made fresh daily).

Tip #5

Food Truck Art: The Cinnamon Snail Team scrubbed and repaired a used food truck from dingy to dazzling with their very own hands; read about the truck transformation on their website!
