Not only does Dina’s insist on only using the freshest, most high-quality ingredients, but they also emphasize offering dishes that can accommodate a range of diets — including vegan dumplings.

100% plant-based cheeseburgers is the name of this vegan food truck’s game.

Serving up artisan Thai gelato, this is one of the most unique food trucks in LA. Truly one-of-a-kind, this truck is changing the way people think about gelato. Moom Maam crafts every flavor (both plant-based and dairy-based) with the best ingredients which they take great care in sourcing. Their gelato combines the unique flavors of Thailand and southeast Asia with Italy’s famously creamy, frozen treat for a fusion dessert that couldn’t be any better. Who said you couldn’t have an ice cream truck for your vegan guests?
