It’s no secret Chicago, IL is known for its meats, from their hot dogs to their Italian sausages. However, don’t think the city’s carnivorous culinary culture means vegans and vegetarians go hungry. Turtle Island is here to harness the power of ingredients straight from the earth, whipping up on-point street food for Windy City residents who adhere to a strictly plant-based diet. If you catch ‘em popping up at an event, be sure to sample the fare. Even avid meat-lovers will fall in love.
The menu sports a whole mix of classic street foods made vegan, from tacos to sliders to empanadas. These goodies smash the notion meat-free equals taste-free as cooks use full-flavored ingredients like mushrooms and cilantro slaw seasoned up with lip-smacking spreads like cayenne aioli and truffle oil. In addition to eats served on the streets, there’s a full catering menu with dishes like risotto and ravioli plus decadent dessert options such as lemon tart and chocolate cake. Speaking of catering, planning an event? Book with Turtle Island. You won’t regret it.
