Our top vegetarian-friendly street eats picks



Aside from kimchi, Korean cuisine isn’t known for its vegetarian dishes, but Ajumama’s Laura Lee bridges the great divide by offering a hearty vegan mushroom rice porridge topped with savory green onions, seaweed and a dash of sesame oil. The dish changes with the seasons (three cheers for local squash!) but will always remain vegan.

Blu Olive


Food truck fare goes beyond sandwiches with Blu Olive. Created by Steve Carmean and his daughter Sarah, this truck features remarkable Italian dishes. They have plans to be out and about all winter, so be sure to give ’em a follow on Twitter or a “like” on Facebook.

The famed Beet and Ricotta Ravioli with Poppyseed Butter gets a cold-weather makeover with butternut squash and a garnish of crispy sage. Look for a rotation of vegetarian soups as well.

Pitabilities; @pitabilities

Jim Pashovich left the real estate industry to restlessly peddle his pitas throughout Central Ohio. Each of his pitas is grilled to order, allowing for an endless number of vegetarian options.

The regular menu touts two official veggie-friendly options: the Falafel Pita, with fried falafel, grilled onion, feta and the usual pita fare; and the Veggie Pita, with garlic hummus, mozzarella cheese and a slew of fresh vegetables. Pair with a side of the Greek salad.
