In keeping with the rest of the Plum Restaurants family, Plum Burgers food truck has no meat products on board. Its burgers are entirely beef-free, organic, and vegan?but within these restrictions, the cooks have gotten more than a little creative. The Jerk + Yam burger piles yam and Jamaican-spiced grilled tofu with caramelized onions, whereas the 8-ounce Mediterranean burger layers mint-kissed seitan with pickled figs. Other patties incorporate lentils, portobello mushrooms, and panko-crusted tempeh as meat substitutes.
Also on the menu are a variety of sandwiches and sides, including the popular Mac & Yease, which is a vegan version of mac and cheese that can also go gluten-free upon request. Milkshakes made with vanilla coconut ice cream conclude meals with cool, sweet sips. To track the truck's location, customers can refer to its homepage. It even takes pickup orders via phone call, text, or really loud yelling from across town.
Espresso Lane's kindly baristas brew steaming cups of fresh-roasted coffee and hand-tamped espresso as diners nosh on pastries, soups, and sandwiches.

White albacore tuna slathered in mayo and sun-dried tomato dressing snuggles between soft slices of bread in the tuna-salad sandwich ($6.75), and a sprinkler full of raspberry vinaigrette spritzes the grapes, mandarin oranges, and strawberries of the garden salad until they sprout into a flavorful medley ($7.25). Cups of the soup of the day ally with demi sandwiches to suppress uprisings of indecisive appetites ($7.25).
Cold Stone's ice cream inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. The ice cream generously welcomes dozens of toppings, as traditional as crumbled cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as granola and black licorice. Choose your favorite ice cream from among dozens of silky flavors, such as Irish cream and butter pecan. Then make certain no one will try and steal a taste by topping it protectively with brownies, gumballs, and cherry pie filling. Whatever Frankencream you create, it'll be scooped cold off the grill into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl. Cold Stone's ice cream and toppings vary between seasons and location, and the creamerie also offers sorbet and an array of lighter toppings such as fruit and honey. Ice-cream creations run between $3.79 and $5.29, depending on size and location.
