A Yacht Among The Food Trucks

Dated: April 22 2019

I was on my way out of town when I spotted this sign: The Vegan Yacht. I had heard that this was one of the most popular vegan eateries in the Austin area so when I saw it, as I was driving south on Manchaca Road, I turned around as fast as I could. Not only was I hungry and needed some food before getting on the long road to South Texas, but I was also determined to see what all the hype was about. 


The Yacht is a small metal trailer decorated with an octopus on a bicycle, and a  sliding window covered in stickers about plant-based and vegan sayings and places.

There were two people inside; one greeted me and took my order. They were busy and had several patrons already eating at the picnic tables next to the trailer, and a couple more in line waiting to order as well. If you’re not in a hurry, there is plenty of parking and tables to enjoy your meal outdoors, especially during the beautiful spring weather in Austin.


I read the menu thoroughly and opted for the Buffalo Bowl. I had no idea what to expect, but considering all the positive reviews I had come across, I was hopeful.

I took the bowl to go and left to run some last-minute errands. After about thirty minutes, I was finally able to stop and eat. The picture doesn’t do this magnificent creation justice. The combination of flavors burst in my mouth--it was crunchy, soft, creamy, flavorful, and absolutely delicious. The spicy tempeh had a melt-on-your-tongue texture, and although it was labeled as spicy, it was mild enough even for the spice-averse. All the vegetables were as fresh as they should be: shredded organic purple and green cabbage, organic spinach, shredded organic carrot topped with avocado and their own lemon-garlic aioli, on a bed of organic basmati rice. Perfect combination!

This bowl was one of the best I’ve had and I will make a point to come back and make my way through the menu  whenever I'm in South Austin.
