New food truck Basil & Javi's Fresh Food Now launched last week in Ballard. The truck serves all-vegan fare using local ingredients whenever possible. The truck lives at 17th Avenue NW and NW Leary Way, and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
The menu includes bright, fresh items like the Garden Veggie Gyro with kalamata aioli, Veggie Frankfurter, and Basil's Savory Sweet Potato Burger. There are sides of fries and salads, with dipping sauces like homemade sriracha and roasted tomato tamarind sauce. Sandwiches come on bread from Essential Baking Company. And there are juices with seasonal produce, like Orange Apple Ginger. You can order at the truck or in advance via the website.
