DaVine Foods in Austin

How can anyone pass by the Enchanted Forest (that's really what they call it!) and not stop? It is certainly worth it. Within the Forest, in Austin style, DaVine Foods serves its meals from trailers. But the food is far from ordinary. It is locally-grown organic, mostly vegan, gourmet cuisine.

DaVine Foods is new to the Austin trailer scene. It has been in this location just over a month. But word of mouth is spreading fast from what I could see. They serve breakfast through dinner with a nice variety on the menu. The trailer above is where orders are placed and where most of the food is prepared.
The red trailer is where they make their very popular pizzas. The crusts are made of organic sprouted grain flours, very high in protein.

Above is their Sprouted Seed Waffle Burger. I have seen it referred to as a waffle falafel. It is baked in a waffle iron. We ordered ours with the works, so it contained a bun made of sprouted wheat and was filled with sliced beets, the waffle, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and onions. It possibly also had salsa, but I can't remember, and I can't tell from the photo. In any event it was delicious. It came with a side of carrot and celery sticks with homemade hummus.

We also had the Mock Tuna (also called Nut Pate) Hemp Bread Sammich. It came with the same side. I didn't get a photo of it, but it was super too. It was just added to the menu, and they already sell out every day. I can see why.

They have more than sandwiches and pizza on the menu. They even have complete macrobiotic meals. It is quite an experience, like being in a past era but also the present at the same time.
