Cinnamon Snail (New York, US)

Cinnamon Snail started as the first vegan organic food truck in the US, in 2010, and has since then become well known. They have now two locations in NYC in addition to the food truck (in Fidi and in the Pennsy food hall). I initially searched for the food truck, but couldn’t find it. So I went to the nearby Pennsy food hall instead. I actually visited Cinnamon Snail a few times during my stay in NYC, to try several different foods. Choosing is hard with such great options!

Of course the Cinnamon Snail is mostly known for their sweets: cinnamon rolls and doughnuts. But they also have very nice savoury foods like sandwiches and burgers. You can order take-out and delivery from the food truck and the Fidi location, I believe all locations have slightly different foods.

There are is space to sit in the Pennsy food hall, though it gets very busy. For my first visit of Cinnamon Snail I wanted to try some pastries! I had a cinnamon roll (of course), a peanut butter cookie party and a raspberry danish. All sweets are quite big and sugary, as expected!

I later went back to try some of the savoury foods; a Memphis BBQ Deluxe burger (lentil burger on a pretzel bun, of which I have no picture), chilli cheese tater tots and a creole grilled tofu sandwich.

Unfortunately it is quite difficult to make a nice pictures since the food is more prepared for take-out. Of course we mostly care about the taste, and it that department there are no complaints! The place itself is also pretty busy, so I guess other people agree with me πŸ˜€
