Dedicated vegans and optimistic carnivores alike can find some form of comfort food crafted within one of the food trucks boasting to be the home of The Cinnamon Snail. I found one of these trucks posted up in front of the New York Public Library, and after scanning the menu decided on a red quinoa burger (which I know doesn’t sound like a meatlover’s dream, but trust me it’s definitely up there on the list of greatest burgers I’ve had). The menu changes frequently, and the location is also subject to change on any given day. Some current food options include Miso Teriyaki Grilled Tofu, the Maple Mustard Tempeh Sandwich, and the Smoked Sage Seitan Burger. Donuts and pastries are a staple of The Cinnamon Snail, with typically 30 different varieties each day (get there early to ensure you can take your pick- they go fast), with flavors like Pistachio Cake Donut, Chocolate Almond Bacon Donut, Lavender Pear Turnover, and White Chocolate Glazed Stuffed with Bourbon Hazelnut Ganache, as well as the more standard types of donuts. One set location for this vegan food vendor is at The Pennsy at the intersection of 33rd and 7th, where one can always find comfortable seating as well as a bar. Prices are typical of New York City “fast” food, and so my burger was 12$. Dedicated fans can do away with that fee, though, through the purchase of The Cinnamon Snail cookbook, which allows for those who love this food to recreate their favorites. Those fans who wish to have the comfort of The Cinnamon Snail food in their homes without having to don a chef’s hat can also achieve this goal through the catering aspect of this business, and custom cakes are available for admiring and enjoying at the customer’s request. If you’re fortunate enough to encounter one of The Cinnamon Snail trucks, definitely test the vegan food wave for yourself.
