If you’ve ever taken a walk around Penn’s campus, you’ve probably noticed that there are tons of food trucks parked near the quad - especially on days that it’s nice out. Honest Tom’s used to be one of those trucks, until the lines got too long and they moved into a colorful little cottage that looks like something Snow White would sing to animals in. All of their food is vegan, and the tacos are both delicious and pretty cheap (you can get two for $7). Plus, you can be in and out in 10 minutes flat, so it’s exactly what you need after a long day of work or a particularly humiliating group workout.
