The Plant Based Fever Taking Over the Food Industry

Oakland’s wildly successful vegan soul food and barbecue restaurant, Vegan Mob, is expanding to two new Bay Area locations this month.

A new restaurant at 949 Ruff Drive in San Jose is expected to open as soon as next Tuesday for pickup and delivery, while a soft opening of a new pop-up location at City Stations in San Francisco, at 701 Valencia St., will take place March 20.


Known for its hearty mob plates, barbequitos, and mob burger cheese rolls, Vegan Mob’s food truck will be riding solo on its opening weekend in San Francisco, but will likely be joined by Señor Sisig and another truck offering meat-free alternatives in the coming months, according to founder Toriano Gordon.
