The Vegan Extremist will be hitting the streets of Toronto in May to serve Indian and Thai-inspired dishes. Toronto's first fully vegan food truck The Vegan Extremist will debut May 14 at the Veggie Fest Hamilton. The truck specializes in curries and will serve classic Thai and Indian dishes such as vegetable korma, samosas, chana masala, and carrot halwa with cashews and raisins. Owner Jeffrey Merkel fell in love with curry at age 12 on a trip to Singapore and dreamed of opening a vegan food truck ever since. Since announcing his intent to hit the streets, Merkel—who wears vegan combat boots to capture his “Vegan Extremist” aesthetic—said the social media attention has been booming.


Veganism is a full blown fine dining trend. Robb Reports writes about the popularity of vegan fine dining for more than just the cool kids. No longer plates of bland tofu relegated to picket sign waivers activists, cooking without animal products is considered a legit cuisine. With only 3 percent of Americans living a vegan lifestyle, this author is excited to highlight that many of the vegan restaurants popping up are taking on a fine dining quality. According to Richard Landau, chef and owner of Philadelphia's Vedge, it's big name chefs taking their fruit and veg seriously. So while braising, brining, and deconstructing used to be for meat fiends only, demand for better vegan eats has invited chefs to get funkier with their produce, grains, and legumes. "Some people think cooking vegan is easy—here, here's your salad," Landau continued. "But that's not cooking. That's why a lot of vegan food was so uninspiring. Everything at Vedge goes through six or seven processes before it hits the plate. There are a lot more talented chefs cooking vegetarian or vegan now. But we still need more."
