Make sure to stop by the market on July 1, August 26th, September 23rd + October 7th! 

I was drawn to the food truck because it felt like a great way to go into different neighborhoods and cater to more people. I love serving people and it’s so fun to go to a different spot to feed more people. I think eventually I’ll be interested in a brick and mortar, but I’d definitely keep the truck.

Wondering what the secret ingredient is behind their vegan food? Bartleby's uses seitan which is wheat flour with all its starch granules washed away, leaving only the strands of pure gluten. You may be asking yourself why they chose seitan over other common vegan subsitues but the answer is simple—versatility.

Seitan has a satisfying juicy, chewy texture. It can be baked, steamed, fried, roasted, braised, stewed, etc.

It's easy to wonder, "How is the food healthy if it's fried?" Bartleby's uses peanut oil to fry their nuggets and patties because it is low in saturated fats and a healthier option than other rying alternatives. Also, the protien allergin of penuts is removed during the frying process making it safe to eat for those with penut allergies!

Seitan is low in fat, low in carbohydrates, and high in protein. It contains no sugar, no saturated fats, and no cholesterol. It contains significant amounts of iron, calcium, and potassium, plus several B vitamins. Seitan also contains seven of the eight essential amino acids, which are the basic building blocks for our organs and tissues.

One thing you don't want to miss is their variety of sauces. They are all made in house and are the perfect flavor addition to your meal! Check out their website to see the new dipping suaces currently in the makes.
