A day in the life of a vegan: The Franken Stand


When someone says that he or she is a vegan, thoughts that come to mind are often times a) being a vegan seems so hard and b) what the heck do you eat? For those who look at veganism and think the only options are tofu and brown rice, they should stop by The Franken Stand. Just as the name implies, The Franken Stand is a 100 percent vegan hot dog cart. Haunting Los Angeles since 2007, the spooky-themed cart pops up all around the LA area and serves up three gourmet plant-based franks for a reasonable price point between three and five dollars. Are you in the mood for a classic hot dog? Give The Creature a try. Feeling a bit more adventurous? The Franken Stand also offers two other creative and tasty franks: The Witch and The Franken. For those with a more discerning palate, The Franken is a savory hot dog made with sun dried tomatoes and basil. The Franken Stand is loved among reviewers on yelp.com and other online review sites. What makes this yummy, vegan spot unique (aside from its spooky theme) is that vegans and non-vegans alike can taste the best of both worlds.
