Taking up residence in the permanent food truck at Lickity Split is Vegan Van. Set in the open beer garden of this hidden gem of a bar, with so much to offer. Co-Owner of Lickity Split, Jerome Borazio was looking for a new option for their van, with the vision of making it a completely vegan fare. Approaching Ginger Scott, a chef with over 35 years experience and 10 years a vegan, it was the perfect match for this new venture.
The bar, Lickity Split is set in freight containers, also being home to Dos Closet, part bar and part op shop, where purchases of any clothes get you a beer and any donations also net you a beer. All profits go towards helping to stop child trafficking. Dos Closet is also home to a couple of SHUFL tables which are perfect entertainment while drinking and chowing down on vegan burgers.
It’s also home to Slice Girls West, Back Alley Sally and The Line, a huge warehouse that converts into a Footscray finds market first Sunday of every month with 49 stalls.
At the Vegan Van you can expect to find 4 different burgers including a Moving Mountains creation and 3 others with Jackfruit, Mushroom & Beetroot and a Falafel Burger. There are also wraps, pies from Yay Foods, Nourish bowls, and plenty of other options. The vegan nachos are epically huge, with cauliflower and potato queso, hot Black bean and tomato sauce, cheese, jalapeño, black olives, sour cream and guacamole. With a new sweet tooth chocolate nachos released with coconut ice-cream berries and more.
If you have a group and want to sample everything, there are food platters to share with friends of spring rolls, croquettes, vegan cheese, dips, mini burgers, falafel, chips, dips, chickn nuggets, curry puffs, there is definitely something for everyone here.
The Vegan Van will run until the end of March, so get in while you can.
