Shimmy Shack - Michigan's First All-Vegan Food Truck

It's Mitten Monday and I wanted to highlight another great Michigan business, which has been bringing joy to vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores for just over a month now. Shimmy Shack is Michigan's first vegan food truck and I know I'm not the only one who was overjoyed to hear about it!

Honestly, I kind of fell in love with the Shimmy Shack before even trying the food. The truck's super cute exterior was designed by The Ren & Stimpy Show's animator John Kricfalusi. The menu is Veg-American with 3 different kinds of cooked sliders, a raw reuben, regular and sweet potato fries, delicious sauces, shakes and cookies. On top of that, the truck can run on biodiesel fuel created from used fryer oil!

When we went to check them out the first time, the line was huge and we had limited options because they had run out of a lot of things in just a couple of hours, but we were totally happy about it because that means people are eating yummy vegan food and the truck will be sticking around! Hooray!

So, the next time Shimmy Shack was in my friend Amy's neighborhood, she was the first person there and ordered one of everything! Then she promptly drove over my house and we pigged out together. Everything was great, but I think I might have liked the raw reuben the best. I can't wait to eat those sliders and fries again!


  1. I'm so jealous of your local food truck! The sliders look yummo!

    1. They are! I'm so glad we finally got an all-vegan food truck!

  2. Hahaha! I'm so glad I put Michigan on your radar! :-)
