The crowd drawing food truck, The Cinnamon Snail isn’t running on the streets of New York City these days, but can still be found at the Sunday farmers market in Red Bank, NJ.

For those who find themselves tortured by the wait, Adam Sobel has you covered. Street Vegan, Sobel’s hot off the presses cookbook is a gorgeous tome of full color food photos and recipes.


The publisher of Street Vegan, Clarkson Potter sent over an extra copy for Flavor Chronicles to give away. Since the Sobel family lives just a hop and a skip from yours truly, I made my way over to their home and had a lovely chat on their front porch.

    I’ve stood in long lines for the Cinnamon Snail several times and it was always worth it! I won’t do that for most trucks, but I’ll just about sell my soul for Cinnamon Snail’s goodies.

    I would LOVE this cookbook! I do a lot of vegan cooking for my friends and family – a free book would help defray the cost of food! πŸ™‚
    I love the Snail.

    I’m fascinated by the Cinnamon Snail and heard great thing about the food, but haven’t managed to be in the same place with it at the same time. I’m very excited to see the cookbook and try the recipes.

    I’ve stood in line for around 3 hours when they announced they were closing down and yes it was worth it! My only complaint was no more creme brulee donuts when I got there (sob).

      My husband & I were online this past Sunday for the Chipotle Seitan breakfast burrito & the cinnamon twist… Soooo worth the short wait! So friendly….so great food. Our 1st time but not our last. For the C snail, we’d wait again .. If it were 20+ min… We would take turns on line πŸ™‚ hope to get the book & learn to cook vegan… Esp the unique spicy kind … My husbands in for the sweets, esp donuts!!! All the best

    I don’t live in New York but the few times I’ve gotten to visit the Snail the wait was worth it! I’d love to be able to make their recipes at home!
