Veg On The Edge comes to the vegan gluten free rescue.
To those who followed A Vegan Obsession way back when..hey, hello..It’s my return blog post. Two years have flown by.
If you are new..hey, hello, to you, too.
A lot happened in two years. I married an American…the handsome Mr Devin O’Neill. And I moved my vegan self to the good ole US of A. Yep, that happened.
I’m a two-year-old in America, and sometimes it feels like it. So much to learn.
We moved to Ojai first, a sweet beautiful mountain town in SoCal and Los Angeles was my vegan mecca. Then we moved to Santa Cruz..a surfing, University town, you’d think would be bursting at the seams with amazing vegan food..right?! wrong. Where was the healthy vegan Santa Cruz contingent? I was disheartened. I couldn’t blog about yummy healthy vegan food because my husband and I didn’t really find any. Until now…
A week or so ago we were out walking in downtown and stumbled across Abbots Square Market. A host of eateries and a bar next to the MAH. Guess what we found?! ..A VEGAN fast food joint. Gluten-free, too! Oh, my heart went thumpity thump when we found it. Veg On The Edge. Healthy vegan Santa Cruz.
It’s the brainchild of Akindale, an ex-opera singing Nigerian. Owned by 5 partners in total, including his son, Deji. Deji left the world of film production behind in Los Angeles to come up to Santa Cruz and join his father in creating Santa Cruz’s ONLY vegan and gluten-free fast food restaurant.
