Stop by for a Monster Burger, or try one of their more creative offerings like the PB &amp; J Burger. Flying Hawaiian Sliders (chicken with crispy Maui onions and chipotle aioli) is another popular choice.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong><span><span><span>Sam’s Chowdermobile</span></span></span></strong><br /><span><span><span>Yes, they have chowder, but they aren’t one-trick ponies! If you want seafood then visit Sam’s Chowdermobile for a luscious lobster roll, fried shrimp po’ boy, or Baja fish tacos. The spicy popcorn shrimp is another good pick as is, of course, the New England clam chowder.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong><span><span><span>Hella Vegan Eats</span></span></span></strong><br /><span><span><span>San Francisco Dining includes plenty of options for vegans. Thanks to Hella Vegan Eats, visiting Food Trucks is also a San Francisco Activity that vegans can enjoy. The offerings at this San Francisco Food Truck are so good that even meat eaters crave them. Try the Fried Avocado, or “Chicken” and Waffles. A selection of burritos, sweets, and other animal-free fare is also available.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-right"><img alt="People ordering from a food truck.
