Owners/Chefs: Tiff & Sylvee Esquivel (photos taken by An Hoang)
we got married in 2009 and set off on a honeymoon adventure that continues to this day. We traveled through mexico and central america in an effort to connect with our latin american roots. we learned how to celebrate food in ways we'd never known before. this discovery is what ultimately led us to create hella vegan eats - a true celebration of vegan cuisine.
we moved to oakland, california in july of 2009. it didn't take long before we stumbled upon the local art scene - inspiring us to take to the streets with our wild & untamed food creativity. Through the years, we've finessed our skills greatly and created a special community of folks whose support and enthusiasm have helped us achieve our most ambitious dreams.
with the help of La Cocina SF, we launched the hella vegan eats food truck in September 2013. We've definitely carved out a space in the local food landscape proclaiming "dreamy vegan eats for all!"
we are very proud to have co-created the first ever oakland vegan beer & food festival as well as the first ever san francisco VEGAN BEER & FOOD FESTIVAL -- both of these festivals benefitted Rocket Dog Rescue (oakland), Muttville (SF), and the SF SPCA.
We are also enormously proud to be a part of the LGBTQ community and work hard to advocate for trans/queer/POC visibility in the food world.
