The Vegan Yacht, which currently has a food trailer located on Menchaca Road in South Austin, announced online July 6 that it will be opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant at 2000 Southern Oaks Drive, Austin, on Aug. 1. The restaurant’s menu will include vegan burritos, chili bowls and sides including Freeto Pies, Veggie Dawgs, Chili Mac, and rice and beans.
