This Gas Station Serves The Most Amazing Jamaican Vegan Food!


We bet you didn’t see this coming. Gas stations aren’t usually a place to find nourishing plant-based foods, but DaJen Eats is easily changing that theory. Inside the Citgo on Lee Road, you’ll find a plethora of Jamaican sandwiches and rice bowls, all which are fully vegan.

Owner Jenneil Ross describes herself as an “Irie, happy vegan” and sticks to a strictly vegan diet. She found inspiration in Babette Davis, a chef-restaurateur behind vegan restaurant Stuff I Eat, a popular plant-based spot in Inglewood, California. Come July, DaJen Eats will move to a permanent space in Eatonville, where vegan food is scarce.

They’ll soon introduce rice bowls, fried cauliflower bites, crispy seitan, Jamaican Jerk Bbq Jackfruit Sliders, and broccoli salads to the menu. They also have surprising combinations of pineapple, sweet and spicy flavors and jerk chicken sandwiches. Loaves of sandwich bread are cooked daily, while their seitan patties surprise vegans and non-vegans alike. They also provide catering services, ice creams, and a culinary academy for kids and adults.

Find DaJen Eats Vegan Café & Creamery at 4845 N. Orange Blossom Trail and enjoy the increasingly popular market of vegan soul food, comfort food, and Jamaican influences.

Why wouldn\'t the author include a city and state for the restaurant this article is about? Does nobody proof read anything?
