On July 20th, 2019, Diamonds by Raymond Lee hosted a Vegan Food Truck Night in Boca Raton. Here is a recap of the event with highlights of the best vegan food trucks in all of South Florida.
Despite the weather, the Vegan Food Truck Event had an awesome turnout. We drew a large vegan crowd of over 400 hundred people from all over South Florida.
The event started at 4 pm with a professional yoga class as the rain passed. By the time that was over everyone was hungry and it was go-time for operation ‘Satisfy Plant-based Vegan Appetites’.
The event featured many vegan food trucks and specialty vegan food companies that were thoroughly enjoyed by vegans and non-vegans alike. Even though the demand for vegan food is growing immensely, it is still hard to come by, so this event was a nice treat for everyone and helped the community find their new favorite vegan spots.
There was more than just food, drinks and desserts. We had a live performance singer, jewelry giveaway, and a special unveiling of one of the hottest cars to drive the earth.
Moreover, our good friends at Tri-County Humane brought adorable pups for adoption and to raise awareness.
The event ran until 9 pm and everyone had a great time, got stuffed, and caught up with friends and made new ones.
Puppies, diamonds and music and vegan food! What better way to spend a Saturday?
Recap of Diamond by Raymond Lee’s Vegan Food Truck Event in Boca Raton
Here are some tantalizing highlights of all the vegan foods and drinks that were available…
The most popular vegan food truck at the event was Natuurlik. That’s a tough feat as they were all great.
Natuurlik is a food truck that specializes in plant-based vegan food with an island flare.
When visiting this special vegan food truck, you will be greeted by reggae music, unbelievably good smells, and smiling faces.
They have so many options and always make new creative dishes that makes every visit to Natuurlik a unique one.
There’s their famous BBQ Jackfruit meal…
Cheeseburger (hold the bun!)
They are all absolutely splendid.
They even have vegan chocolate chip cookies, fruits, and tasty juices for those of us with a sweet tooth.
Their motto is “Food is Life – Food is Medicine”. It’s clear they truly live by that.
Be sure to keep an eye out for this truck cruising the streets of South Florida!
“Always incredibly nice, patient with the kids, amazing offering (CURRY TACOS NEW FAVE)! Not only do they make amazing, fresh and healthy foods, THEY TASTE GREAT! My kids love the Jackfruit tacos!! Who knew?! Keep doing what you are doing… people will catch on! We need Natuurlik to be a NATIONAL venture. You guys set the bar.”
“Great food! Owned by great people committed to quality, excellence and healthy options!”
“They have been parked by my office building few days a week, but I never tried, because the food is vegan, so I didn’t know what to think. Well I got the jerk stew with basmatti rice today and it was so good, I went back to get 2 more meals to take home. The meal is easily 2 portions. But it tasted so great, that I couldn’t stop eating.”
Another hit of the event and treasure for the people here in South Florida was Rawtenders. Rawtenders serves up healthy, incredibly delightful handcrafted coldpressed juices. If you don’t know, coldpressed juices are proven to be the healthiest way to drink juice.
Rawtenders specializes in Coldpressed Cocktail Mixers, Coldpressed Fitness Cleanse, Coldpressed Event Mixology, and Coldpressed Bottle Service.
Rawtenders was created by Jacinta with a plan to be a juicing company that is thoroughly dedicated to producing flavorful, fresh, and original coldpressed juices and cleanses for customers who love fun, healthy, delicious juice. She has been committed since day one and has delivered on her plan to the T. The community simply can’t get enough of Jacinta and her juices.
Her extensive experience and experimentation of blending juices over the years lead her to create dozens of recipes for juices, juice cleanses, detoxes, and cocktail mixers! Each one as tasty as the rest.
Her “salads in a bottle” include:
24 Karat Rose Gold, which has rose syrup, organic pink pitaya, 24k gold flakes, and filtered h2o (very fitting for Diamonds by Raymond Lee!)
Nutty By Nature, which is made from raw almonds, cinnamon, filtered h2o, organic vanilla, organic maple agave, and himalayan sea salt.
Smooth Appelrator which contains red apple, beet, carrots, chia seeds, camu camu, and lemon.
And many more…
What’s more, Jacinta does raw event mixology so Rawtenders can Rawtend all types of events…let’s get juicy with it!
You can find Rawtenders in multiple shops and locations in South Florida, so go check them out so you can try the awesomeness for yourself.
The New Vegan Restaurant & Juice Bar is a vegan’s dream.
The food truck serves to be the vegan spot that’s loved by vegans and non-vegans alike. Their food may be gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and non-GMO, but the wonderful couple who founded The New Vegan (Rahein Jones & Patricia Achille-Jones), the food truck atmosphere, and the food itself are not at all self-righteous about it. This is the epitome of vegan food everyone will love.
Their Jackfruit Noxtail, Falafel Burger, Curried Chickpea Patties, Fried “Chicken” (that’s shockingly chicken-less for how it tastes) and more will win over any carnivore.
Here’s their Vegan Burger…
Mac n Cheese and Vegan Fried Chicken combo…
Garlic Falafel Rice Veggie Bowls…
They have so many creative dishes that we could go on and on. This is healthy, innovative food at its finest. It is a place you definitely don’t want to miss.
Once you eat at The New Vegan, you are going to be going back time and time again. Meals have never tasted so good!
The New Vegan Reviews:
“This place is AMAZING!!! Everything about it is good. Service, people, food, drinks, desserts. love it and was so happy to have it in west palm now. Heartbroken to hear it’s closing. Hope it finds a new location with much better manord so we can all enjoy it’s amazingness again very very very soon!”
“This place is amazing! The food is good for your body and good for your soul! We are absolutely in love with this place. Dining in feels like you are relaxing at your best friend’s house and their mom just cooked the best food you ever had
“This place has delicious food, great people, friendly environment and is cruelty free, healthy for you & the planet!”
“SO GOOD! Reasonably priced, gigantic portions, and SO freash… so excited to have a full vegan restaurant in the neighborhood instead of a place that just has 1 or 2 options… will be back, fore sure!”
Grand Cru Hospitality was very popular with the crowd.
People lined up to get a taste of Grand Cru’s mouthwatering vegan Italian cuisine. It’s no surprise as this food truck was created by Chef John J Nihoff.
Chef Nihoff has been in the fine-dining game for over 30 years, working in top restaurants and beach resorts, teaching at the Culinary Institute for America, building a well-respected catering enterprise, being featured on all types of food mediums, and winning a plethora of celebrated awards from the food industry.
Grand Cru Hospitality’s menu offers incredible gourmet meals, such as their Mushroom Soup-Rich and Creamy, Kennet Square, which has a hint of white truffels and coconut milk and Italian bread for dipping.
This is definitely a food truck you are going to want to keep an eye out for. Moreover, if you are looking for catering for an event, they are one of the best in the business.
Grand Cru Hospitality Reviews:
“The Best Food Truck Experience I have Ever Had. Highly Recommend It”
“I visited this food truck and I ordered one thing and came back for another! I will go back one more time before it’s over! 5 stars!!!!”
Inside Diamonds by Raymond Lee, Pure Vegetarian & Vegan Cakes has a table full of their tantalizing vegan sweets. They looked amazing and they tasted even better.
Pure Vegetarian & Vegan Cakes specializes in Vegetarian and Vegan custom cakes, cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, eggless cakes, rice krispies, wedding cakes, and more. They cater to Gluten Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Dairy Free, and Dye Free.
Pure Vegetarian & Vegan Cakes has a great story backing the company. The owner, Sira Garib, understood how challenging it can be finding vegan and allergy-friendly desserts as a vegetarian in today’s world. As a dessert lover and a vegan herself, she was always searching and tired of the limited options.
Sara has always enjoyed baking and decorating cakes. So, she decided to take some classes to hone her dessert-making skills. She did just that and really turned it up to 10.
Nowadays, she is a stay at home mom with a company focused on baking delectable vegetarian and vegan goodies. It was her dream come true. And for the rest of us here in Boca Raton, her desserts are our dream come true. They are simply fantastic.
Pure Vegetarian & Vegan Cakes states, “We can all enjoy each other’s company while eating delicious baked goods!” And that’s exactly what we did at our Vegan Food Truck Event.
If you want to have an event catered with these flavorsome baked goods, all you need to do is give them one week notice.
Pure Vegetarian & Vegan Cakes Reviews:
“They have perfectly sweet, unique flavors, healthy treats to enjoy more often.”
“Super yummy cake pops and beautiful cupcakes!! Can’t wait to order more!”
“The cake was excellent tasty mouth-watering and something I would recommend to all who want a pure vegetarian delicious cake.”

Artisen Gelato is a wonderfully unique, entirely natural fruit, vegan-certified, allergy-friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free gelato-sorbete shop located in Boca Raton, Florida.

“Vegan gelato so incredibly good, you wouldn’t even know was vegan. So much easier to digest, and easier on the planet too. And it’s SO GOOD!! Homemade cones are amazing too. They even have a gluten free waffle cone. The service is top notch, the owners and staff are extremely nice, friendly people. Can’t go wrong!!”
“Really good gelato! The owners are friendly, and they have a huge variety of flavors, all vegan and nut free. I tried many of them, and they were all amazingly delicious.n have gluten free cones for my friends who can’t have gluten.”
Although Kombucha has been around for thousands of years, the people are craving it more than ever these days. Not only for the health benefits but the taste too.
Thanks to This Chick Is Raw Inc, we got the freshest, most delicious supply of Kombucha that any vegan food truck event could ask for.
They had small bottles to drink on the spot and large, cool, traditional-looking jugs for those that wanted to take enough home for the whole family.
This Chick Is Raw, Inc was created by Brittny Schwartz with the noble vision to provide 100% organic raw prepared meals and raw fermented beverages that help people “heal from the inside out”. Her cultured foods and beverages have so many health benefits and they are all superbly pleasant to the taste buds.
If you are looking for the best in organic, vegan supplementation, This Chick Is Raw is where it’s at.
This Chick Is Raw Inc Reviews:
“When I first found out about This Chick Is Raw, I was incredibly ill with gut issues. I had multiple food sensitivities and had a very short list of safe foods that my body wasn’t reacting to. After consulting with Brittny, I began her dietary recommendations and a custom tailored plan on her products. Within days of starting the Apothecary Kombucha, I felt my body come to life again! It was truly amazing. Over time, I achieved great gut health and am now happily enjoying a variety of food again. I have my life and energy back. Not only do I consider Brittny a trusted source for guidance on my health, but I consider her a great friend. She truly cares about people and that is reflected in the quality of her products. You don’t have to be as ill as I was to enjoy the benefits of what This Chick Is Raw has to offer.”
“Brittany has been a God sent Angel. I can’t live without her raw kombucha now. I’ve been using her raw kombucha for a few years now & Her wisdom in healing & health has changed my life & healed my body where every doctor I saw for years failed . I was ready to give up & then God placed Brittany in my path & my gut , my skin, my health has never been better. Thank you Brittany , for saving & healing my body!!”
Hot dogs anyone? Yes, please!
That’s My Dog Foodtruck blessed the event with the American Classic Food with a twist (they are vegan!).
Their vegan gourmet hotdogs are off the charts.
They have so many creative dogs on the menu it’s hard to choose which one to get, so the only option is to keep going back. When it comes to toppings, That’s My Dog is on top of the game.
You have The Vegan Chili Dog, The Heavenly Vegan Hot Dog, The Hot Dig-ity Dog, The Junk Yard Dog, The Slap Yo Mama Dog, The Mac Dog.
That’s my Dog Foodtruck Review:
“The hotdog I had at a festival recently was AMAZING!! It was the cheesy mac dog!! get food from this truck you will not be sorry!!! thank you again!!”
“There Mac and cheese dog was great. The customer service was great and they were on time to cater the event I attended.”
Our food truck event wouldn’t have been complete without more delicious desserts. Amy’s Lil Chunks of Love delivered big time.
Amy, the founder of Amy’s Lil Chunks of Love offers healthy yet very tasty treats. She took her Grandma’s recipes to the new age, serving up some of the most heavenly desserts we’ve ever tasted.
Amy’s Lil Chunks of Love’s vegan desserts are completely organic, GMO-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
The food truck event saw her homemade “create your own” ice creams with cookie sandwiches, pecan and chocolate cookies. Everything sold out so quickly.
Get in touch with Amy if you have any respect for your sweet tooth.
@boop14 unveiled her brand new McLaren 720s Spider
At 5pm Betty Polansky cruised into the event in her brand new McLaren 720s Spider.
It was a showstopper and huge attraction.
She parked it right in front of our store so everyone could get a hands-on, upclose and personal experience with this high-tech supercar.
As you know, Diamonds by Raymond Lee has a strong affinity (to say the least) with cars. So we know our South Florida Car Fam also enjoyed this one especially.
Moreover, there were many other hot rides on scene too.
Live Performance by Belatovis
During the event, we got to enjoy a fantastic live performance by the remarkably talented Belatovis.
Tri-County Humane Puppies
Tri-County Humane brought out some pups to raise awareness for adoption.
There were so many cute pups. Adopting is truly the best option most times, and thanks to Tri-County, this is even more apparent.
As per usual, we had a jewelry giveaway for all of the attendees to enter in for a chance to win…
