Attention fast food-lovers! Your wildest dreams have come true. It is now possible to find classic American fast food without the guilt or Big Mac sweats.

It’s just the “veganning” for Stephanie Kirkpatrick’s Boston-based food truck concept, Bartleby’s Seitan Stand.

NO MEAT, NO PROBLEM

Opening in April 2018, Bartleby’s is making its way downtown and serving up incredible fast food… but without the mystery meat. Menu items include fried sandwiches on toasted buns, crispy golden nuggets, fries, salads, and dipping sauces, all designed for a vegan diet with carefully-sourced ingredients free from animal products. And their secret (or not-so-secret) ingredient? Their signature seitan!

But what exactly is seitan? Pronounced say-tan (cue the satan jokes), it’s a popular meat substitute made from wheat gluten. Low-fat, low-carb, and high in protein, its juicy and chewy meat-like consistency is the highlight of the food truck’s menu.

The recent rise of vegan dining is trending, but this food truck is taking things to another level for their customers, who they refer to as “devils.” Whether you order their Hail Seitan or Demon Deluxe sandwiches or a Devil’s Dozen (13 seitan nuggets and double dose of sauce), Bartleby’s is convenient, affordable, and, obviously, plant-based. It’s also sustainable for a fast-paced, grab-as-you-go lifestyle.

MOTHER EARTH KNOWS BEST

From their crispy seitan patties to their fully biodegradable containers, Bartleby’s is classic American fare with a twist. The biggest twist to modern fast food? They actually care, claiming they’re “empowering people to do good for themselves, the animals, and the planet—one meal at a time.”

Roaming, diet-friendly meals on wheels? We'll happily wait in line when Bartleby’s pulls up to its location for the day and opens its doors (or windows).

GUILT-FREE COMFORT FOOD
