With more than a dozen outposts and counting, Clover Food Lab has gone from the food truck brainchild of an MIT grad to a mini-chain that's redefining how Boston thinks of (and of course, eats) fast food. The company doesn't even have a damn freezer -- at any of its locations. That's how seriously they take their organic, creative, and fresh vegan dishes. Expect dishes like barbecue seitan and chickpea fritters, which, like just about every item on the menu, pair wonderfully with Clover's heavenly lavender lemonade.
Even your paleo pals occasionally go vegetarian for this mini food empire. Initially the food truck brainchild of an MIT grad, Clover has gone on to reinvent the city’s fast-food scene. With a bottomless commitment to food that is fresh, inventive, and, yup, vegetarian, every Clover outpost—currently at 13 and counting—proves that you just don’t need animal protein when classics like barbecue seitan and chickpea fritters are on the menu.
