10 Best Vegan Food Trucks in America
Remember the joy that arose as a kid when you heard that telltale jingle of the ice cream truck? These vegan food trucks evoke that same emotion. Instead of procuring Sailor Moon-shaped novelties with gumball eyes with a handful of quarters, we’re frequenting these mobile kitchens for their sumptuous vegan comfort food and swiping our phones with Apple Pay. From fast food burger replicas to fluffy, savory bao, these vegan food trucks are worth chasing after.
10. Shimmy Shack
Pretty in pink with a 50s flair, this retro vegan food truck will take you back to the days of malts and sock hops. The accessible menu includes everything from a classic vegan cheeseburger to a carrot hot dog Coney Island-style (covered in chili, diced onion, and mustard). On the sweet side, Shimmy Shack offers a variety of divine vegan cookies, shakes, and three different kinds of banana splits that will make you jitterbug with joy.
For people who suffer from food allergies, carefully reading the ingredients on food labels is a matter of self-protection. The thought of that label not being accurate is downright frightening.The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced it has temporarily relaxed food labeling and packaging rules for food manufacturers because of the coronavirus pandemic. The agency said it is relaxing the rules to avoid disruptions in the food chain.The move is not sitting well with groups that advocate for people with food allergies. Those with food allergies can face serious, and sometimes deadly, health consequences if they eat food containing ingredients they are allergic to.”If you can’t trust what’s on the label, how do you know if you’re not going to get sick whether you are in a restaurant or the grocery store,” said Debra Levantrosser who owns Shimmy Shack vegan restaurant in Plymouth and is gluten-sensitive herself.Food allergies can cause a myriad of symptoms, including hives, digestive problems and trouble breathing, according to webmd.com.This is the fifth time since the pandemic began that the FDA has relaxed food labeling and packing rules, saying it is attempting to avoid disruptions in the food supply chain. Previous temporary changes included relaxing rules on nutrition labeling. menu labeling and packaging and labeling of shell eggs. .The Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) advocacy and research organization said the FDA’s move poses a “significant threat to the food allergy community,” which includes more than 32 million Americans.
“The FDA guidance issued on May 22 temporarily changes labeling requirements for food manufacturers leaving the food allergy community concerned that they could no longer trust the labels of the food products they buy,” FARE CEO Lisa Gable said. “However, if the guidance were extended indefinitely, there would be additional concerns and anxieties around proper disclosure of ingredient changes..”During COVID-19, FARE said, food allergy families are already struggling. The group is asking the FDA to “reverse course by sharing the fears and anxieties of the food allergy community. “Under the new guidelines, manufacturers cannot substitute ingredients to the eight common allergens: cow’s milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, wheat, soy and fish.The relaxed guidelines allow food manufacturers to make “minor formulation changes” without making changes to its existing product labels. A reason for the relaxed rules is because of the pandemic food manufacturers faced sourcing some ingredients.For example, a change would allow a food manufacturer to use unbleached flour in place of bleached flour or sunflower oil if canola oil couldn’t be found without a label change.This new guidance is temporary, the FDA said, and intended to remain in effect for the duration of the COVID-19 public health emergency.In addition to her vegan restaurant, Levantrosser operates a food truck offering 100% vegan and gluten-free fare and a nonprofit food pantry, Shimmy’s Cupboard, that she opened in April. The pantry is a source for vegan and gluten-free items.At Shimmy Shack, if they are out of an ingredient or can’t find an ingredient they normally use, Levantrosser said, they wouldn’t make the item.”I couldn’t just change our oil because I couldn’t find canola oil,” Levantrosser said. “I couldn’t just switch to soy (bean oil) because a lot of people are allergic to soy.”Dave Bloom, CEO of SnackSafely.com in post wrote that “unfortunately, the devil is in the details, and the guidance goes on to introduce numerous loopholes that are of concern to members of the food allergy community.”In a video on the website explaining the new changes Bloom pointed out the guidance does not change the disclosing the top eight allergens. But what is an issue is highly refined oils such as peanut, sesame, soy bean oil being used in place of, say, canola oil.”It’s easy for companies to apply stickers to their products warning of an ingredient change and issue a similar statement on their respective websites,” Bloom said. “Why the FDA didn’t require these is astounding to me and the food allergy community.”
The FDA also added restrictions including that the ingredients substituted “does not cause any adverse health effect (including food allergens, gluten, sulfites, or other foods known to cause sensitivities in some people, for example, glutamates).” The ingredient has to be 2% or less by weigh of the finished food. Also, the ingredient can’t be a “characterizing ingredient,” like raisins in raisin bread.Dr. Devang Doshi, chief of pediatric allergy and immunology at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, advises families to continue to be as diligent as they normally are.”Stay well informed. Go to the companies’ websites, always reach out to your doctor,” Doshi said. “Continue to read labels and purchase from reputable companies and products that one has tolerated in the past.But, like others, Doshi worries if it becomes a permanent thing, it’s a big step backward. “We just don’t know how temporary of an issue this is,” Doshi said.

Metro Detroit restaurants make updates and improvements during pandemic downtime
From a new coat of paint to a complete rebranding, business owners have been keeping busy while their dining rooms are closed
While dining rooms across the state have been sitting empty, some restaurant owners have taken this downtime to spruce up their businesses.
What better time for a deep clean, a paint overhaul, new floors — and in one case a total concept change — than a weeks-long government-forced shut down? Monday Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced dining rooms could open June 8 at 50% capacity after being closed since mid-March.
Besides the downtime to make cosmetic improvements, restaurants also used this time to make changes that will better facilitate social distancing when they reopen.
At the Benstein Grille in Commerce Township, owners are celebrating five years of business by adding new landscaping, an extended parking lot, a patio and an addition they’re calling a “four season room.”
“Since day one, when we purchased the property, the parking lot has had us handcuffed here, but we said we’re here for a while … we live in the community here, let’s stay here and really maximize what we can do here,” said Mike Richardson, who co-owns Benstein with Glenn Kaplan. “This will keep us here longer.”
“The four season room will be an enclosed room that we’ll be able to use all year around and the patio itself will have six tables that will be covered over a canopy and we’ll have heaters out there so we can have that, (depending on) Michigan weather, for as many weeks as possible,” he said, adding that these additions will grow the capacity of the restaurant from 160 to closer to around 200.
Construction is now underway while the upscale-casual restaurant runs a very hearty carryout business — Richardson estimates it’s about 70% of what sales would normally be — and the new additions should be finished later this summer.
On Detroit’s east side, Sindbad’s Restaurant and Marina shared with social media followers updates they have made, including steam cleaning and sanitization of the kitchen, bathrooms, bar area and the dining room’s tables and chairs.
The family-owned restaurant, which opened in 1949 on the Detroit River, also had its hardwood floors refinished, installed new bar tile and did some paint and patch work.
A favorite in Corktown, Mudgie’s Deli closed in mid-March and reopened for carryout service in late April. While dark, owner Greg Mudge took the time to re-coat the 110-year-old floor in the dining room. He and his crew also sanitized the steel bar and stained it with new coat.
“I laid low for a few weeks and then I decided, well, there’s some projects at the restaurant that you definitely can’t do while open and one of those is resealing the floors in the manner that I did them,” said Mudge. “That stuff takes like two three days to dry before you should have people on it.”
He said at first he wasn’t sure if his efforts were futile. He and many other restaurant owners wondered if they would ever reopen. Since reopening for carryout, though, Mudgie’s has seen steady enough business to keep things chugging along. Mudge plans to expand his popular Lobster Week in July to the entire month.
Known for pizza and a huge patio and yard with volleyball nets and horseshoes, the team at Z’s Villa near New Center have been working hard inside the historic restaurant, which was once a house. When restaurants are allowed to reopen, customers will enjoy updated bathrooms with touchless features, new floors and a new paint job.
On Detroit’s east side, the Cadieux Cafe has been working on adding a beer garden, and will be installing a garage-door entrance through the side wall.
Debra Levantrosser, owner of vegan and gluten-free restaurant Shimmy Shack in Plymouth, has been taking this time to deep clean, organize and experimenting with new menu items. She even launched the state’s first vegan and gluten-free food pantry for those in need.
“When the pandemic started I thought this would be a good time to clean the things that have been bothering me or things that we just never have time to get to,” she said, adding that they removed all the furniture in the restaurant and had the floor refurbished and waxed. “We’ve been fixing equipment … deep cleaning, getting rid of things and reorganizing.”
Levantrosser said Shimmy Shack, which is also a food truck, has been doing carryout but seeing less than 50% of sales. She’s been getting creative, selling ready-to-bake items. She said dessert sales are up, too.
“A lot of people are wanting desserts right now,” she said.
Restaurateur and chef Johnny Prepolec, owner of Mr. B’s in Royal Oak, had plans to make major concept changes to his large Main street restaurant at some point, but not this soon.
His speakeasy-themed restaurant in the basement level, Johnny’s, will stay the same but is giving a new identity to the main dining room known as Mr. B’s Gastropub.
This means a new name — Alchemy — new look and a complete overhaul of the menu to be more of a farm-to-table concept with a focus on creative cocktails.
“We’re rebranding. We’re basically opening a whole new restaurant,” he said, adding he wants the concept to move away from pub grub and be more a more creative, chef-driven contemporary restaurant, which is more in his wheelhouse.
“I believe that’s kind of where the market it, I think the market in Royal Oak needs more chef-driven and creative food restaurants.”
The nightclub on one side and the arcade on the other are also going to evolve and are getting updated with changes to the floors and color schemes.
Prepolec, who had COVID-19 in March and has recovered, says right now is a great time to make updates to the restaurant, and not just because it would be against the law to open their dining room now.
“I’m executing a strategy today that I was hoping to execute a year from now,” he said. “I’m doing it at a much lower cost and much more efficiently than I ever could have done. Because we’re not open, because lenders are being reasonable, because you’re getting grants … there’s a lot of people that are helping and accommodating.”
“When else can you just shut down and drop your overheads? You can’t. Normally to shut down it’s an incredible cash drain and this is a good of a time as it is,” he said. “I’ve got a group of employees coming in and we’re painting and creating the new menu.”
“I’m an optimist,” he said. “I think the silver lining in this whole thing is it’s giving people the opportunity, who want it, to take their businesses in strategic directions that they may not have had the opportunity to.”

Animal activists blast officials for using live reindeer at Plymouth holiday event
Published 1:56 p.m. ET Jan. 7, 2020 |
Animal-rights activists are decrying the presence of a live reindeer last month at a downtown Plymouth holiday event, arguing it posed a dangerous threat to the public and the health of the animal.
Michigan State Director of The Humane Society of the United States Molly Tamulevich and four other advocates addressed the Plymouth City Commission Monday, urging the commissioners to create an ordinance prohibiting future live-animal exhibits, emphasizing that placing an animal in an out-of-its-element setting is potentially harmful to the public and the welfare of the animal.

Vegan food in retro air
January 22, 2019 Dana Casadei
Come late January, the inside of Shimmy Shack’s first brick-and-mortar – located at 1440 Sheldon Road, Plymouth – will be filled with rooms similar to a house in the 1950s, complete with the TV trays and record player to match, and food that probably wasn’t made much in the era. “Our whole mission is to dispel the myth that vegan and gluten-free food is boring and bland,” said owner Debra Levantrosser. They’ve done that for the last six years already with their food truck, which will still be used for larger events. Everything offered on the food truck will be at the restaurant – with a few additions. Levantrosser said they will offer rotating soups, new desserts, and are going to do Freaky Friday, a dish that will be offered all day – but guests will only know the mystery dish is vegan and gluten-free. “It’s going to be sort of an Iron Chef, whatever we have in the kitchen kind of thing,” said Levantrosser, a vegan for 29 years. FYI – no one will be riding around on roller skates.

Vegan fast food restaurant Shimmy Shack to open in January
January 07, 2019 at 10:19 AM
The long wait for the brick and mortar version of Shimmy Shack is nearly over as the restaurant prepares for a late January opening.
Owner Debra Levantrosser tells Metro Times the Plymouth Township location has passed all its inspections, and she and her staff will spend the next few weeks training employees and making final preparations. However, no firm opening date is yet set.
When the doors do open, you’ll find much of what the company has made its name on as a food truck — a retro, 1950s diner now with counter service and dine-in seating.
Shimmy Shack bills itself as metro Detroit’s only 100-percent vegan and gluten-free food truck. It launched in 2013 and was named one of the nation’s top five trucks by PETA.
The menu includes items like a coney dog smothered with black bean chili, mustard, and onions on a warm gluten-free hot dog bun. It also offers burgers like the Southwest Burger, made with a house-made black bean and rice patty topped with guacamole and salsa, and the Classic Burger – its version of a fast-food cheeseburger. The truck also serves french fries, sweet potato fries, chili fries, and chili cheese fries with special sauces.
For dessert, Levantrosser makes shakes that come in chocolate, pumpkin, strawberry, and cookie monster, and she also recently introduced a line of vegan cookies. Those include the Cowgirl Cookies (chocolate chips, oats, toasted walnuts and peanut butter); Chocolate, Caramel, and Coconut (vegan shortbread cookie sprinkled with toasted coconut and drizzled with chocolate and housemade caramel); and Strawberry Loveprint (a sugar cookie topped off by Shimmy’s “loveprint” — a vegan strawberry jam heart).
The new restaurant is located near Ann Arbor and Haggerty roads in Plymouth Township. Check back for an update on the grand opening date.
Levantrosser also announced the return of Michigan’s Sexiest Vegans calendar 2019 edition. For more info, check out Shimmy Shack’s website.

Vegan and gluten-free Shimmy Shack expands with brick and mortar restaurant in Plymouth
Restaurateur Debra Levantrosser knows that eating vegan isn’t just a fad.
Owner of the Shimmy Shack food truck, which serves a totally vegan and gluten-free menu, Levantrosser has been eating a plant-based diet that is free of animal products for nearly 30 years.
For the past five years that she’s been running the truck, Levantrosser has seen the demand for her food grow, and she’s gearing up to open a brick-and-mortar Shimmy Shack restaurant later this month in Plymouth. She said she chose this suburb after doing her research.
“When I did the research on where the vegan restaurants currently are, and where there were gaps and where there is a population of vegan people, it really became clear to me that Plymouth was the perfect location,” she said. The chef was trying to find a location with a drive-through window, but that proved to be nearly impossible. Instead they’ve nestled in a former consignment shop in a strip mall at 1440 Sheldon in Plymouth.
The Shimmy Shack restaurant will serve the same plant-based menu folks familiar with the food truck have come to crave, including a falafel pita, “burgers” and fries, nachos and vegan shakes. Again, the food is plant-based and gluten-free, making the whole menu fair game for diners with those kinds of dietary restrictions.
Levantrosser says her burger, which is her top seller, is made with a lentil and brown rice patty and topped with vegan melted cheese along with the standard burger toppings. The vegan cheese is tapioca-based and Levantrosser describes it as “freaking amazing.” The milkshakes — chocolate, strawberry and cookie monster — are made with soy and rice milk.
The vegan chef sees her business as a restaurant and food truck that is unique and fun, and just happens to be vegan and gluten-free. She’s hoping that with the opening of the brick-and-mortar Shimmy Shack will help build a community with a space for kids, a vegan marketplace and parties like a vegan trick-or-treating event near Halloween.
The vibe in the cafe will be casual, with fast counter service instead of table-side service. The decor will be a mix of 1950s vintage, re-purposed and up-cycled decor (no leather).
Shimmy Shack in Plymouth is expected to open by the end of the month. Visit shimmyshack.com for updates. Once open, the shack will have service 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Mon.-Thurs. and 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Fri.-Sat. Sunday will be available for private events only, such as birthday parties and showers.

Thieves steal cash, electronics from the Shimmy Shack vegan food truck
Posted By Tom Perkins on Wed, May 9, 2018 at 8:59 am
Misfortune has struck the Shimmy Shack vegan food truck for a second time in under a year.
Owner Debra Levantrosser says someone broke into the truck while it was parked in the South Lyon VFW Hall parking lot and stole over $500 worth of cash and electronics.
The incident comes just nine months after someone poured what appears to be anti-freeze or some kind of red liquid into the truck’s gas tank in South Lyon.
“This is sad and a bit frustrating” Levantrosser says. “We are simply trying to do our part to end animal suffering and someone seems intent on breaking our spirits, which they won’t. We hope whoever committed the crime now has money for food but we really wish they hadn’t taken our things. We work very very long hours to make the little money that we do and when people take the things we have worked hard for, it is frustrating. It feels like someone took the wind out of our sails.”
Shimmy Shack is planning an Aug. 1 opening for its new brick and mortar location near Ann Arbor and Haggerty roads in Plymouth Township. Thankfully, not South Lyon.
The mint green, retro restaurant has an American diner feel and serves vegan and gluten-free versions of classics like burgers, coney dogs, and nachos. PETA named it one of the top five vegan food trucks in America in 2015.
Anyone with information is asked to call the South Lyon Police.

Shimmy Shack settles down
The free-wheeling Shimmy Shack is settling down in a new Plymouth Township location.
The popular vegan food truck is targeting Aug. 1 to open its first brick-and-mortar restaurant at the corner of Ann Arbor and Sheldon roads, owner Debra Levantrosser said. The move has been in the works for the mobile food purveyor since 2013.
The restaurant will have a walk-up counter like a typical fast food restaurant, and there will be seating in a “’50s-style setting” for a quick sit-down bite. In addition, a “vegan marketplace” will be available for birthdays and special presentations, the release said.
Levantrosser said $100,000 will be invested into the 1,620 square-foot building.
On the menu will be the usual truck favorites, including a Coney dog smothered with black bean chili, mustard and onions blanketed on a gluten-free bun. Chocolate, strawberry and cookie monster shakes will be offered as well.
The truck isn’t going away; it will still be frequenting the streets of metro Detroit, staying true to its roots.
