Vegan Gator Food Truck (Gainesville, FL)

It’s Wang Wednesday and Vegan Gator’s cauliflower wings are perfect for any celebration including Cinco de Mayo and Meatless May!

Vegan Gator, which opened in at the end of 2020, has been elevating the vegan food scene here in Gainesville!

This local food truck is located at 220 NW 8th Ave, next to the Flashbacks parking lot, starting noon Tuesdays-Saturdays. They do not have seating or delivery, so you would need to drive there to pick up the food.

Their menu consists of delicious plant based burgers, wings, and fries made from locally sourced ingredients.

For Wang Wednesdays you can get vegan cauliflower wings with a variety of flavors! For today they have Carolina Gold BBQ, Sweet and Spicy Korean Glaze, Lemon Pepper, and OG Buffalo.

Last week I tried the Carolina Mustard BBQ wings ($8.99), which were slightly crunchy on the outside with a mustardy-tangy BBQ sauce and scallions on top. If you like Carolina BBQ, you will like these.

I really liked the Thai Sweet Chili cauliflower wings ($8.99) as well, as they were very crispy and the sauce was a good mix of sweet and slightly spicy. The sauces were very flavorful and good, and the softer texture of the cauliflower inside complimented the crispiness of the batter well. I only wish the portion sizes were a little larger for the wings.

The White Truffle and Rosemary fries ($7.99) were also very tasty, with a creamy, truffle sauce, herbs, and rosemary on top of crispy crunchy fries. As a fan of truffle, I thought these were solid and very filling.

The Poutine fries ($7.99) were also good with plenty of mushrooms, cheese, white béchamel sauce, mushroom gravy and scallions on top of the fries. While I enjoyed these fries since it has been a while since I had poutine, these do get a little soggy with time so just be aware of that! They are also definitely heavier than the truffle fries.

Be sure to try their Vegan Cowboy burger ($15.99)! It is pricey for just a burger but it is packed with BBQ Jackfruit, crispy onion straws, cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, and LTP. This burger is very big and is sure to fill you up! I liked the combination of flavors created by the BBQ jackfruit and the lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. It’s a very good option for a vegan burger. I’m not even vegan and I thought this tasted amazing!

I was fortunate enough to enjoy this delicious food with a nice cold beer and amazing company! The drink of choice was Guinness Draught Stout and it was dark and delicious.
