This Vegan Hot-Dog Stand Is Winning Over Meat-Eaters in Omaha

If you’re lucky enough to live in Omaha, Nebraska, you might run into Mick Ridgway and his vegan hot-dog stand Fuaxmaha Hot Dogs.

#Thedogfather is prepared to make you a #vegan hotdog you can't refuse. Come find the cart at Modern Love on Thursday and on 14th and Jackson on Friday. 11:30 to 2pm both days. See you there!

It wasn’t long ago that “The Dogfather” questioned whether vegan dogs would sell in Omaha. Chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz of the local vegan restaurant Modern Love encouraged Ridgway to stick with his initial idea. Fauxmaha sold 70 hot dogs on its opening day, and business has been booming ever since.

Flavors include the BBQ Dog, with coleslaw, smoky coconut bacon, and barbecue sauce; the Banh Mi, with pickled carrots and radish, Sriracha-mayo, mint, and cilantro; and The Original, with a choice of ketchup, mustard, dill relish, onions, jalapeños, sauerkraut, and Sriracha.

First sneak peek of some dogs! Curry Grilled Onions, the Banh Mi, and the ol traditional doggie with mustard, chopped onion, jalapeno, and kraut.

Did we mention Fauxmaha’s dogs are 100 percent handmade? Those are words you don’t usually associate with hot dogs.

Ridgway sets up outside different businesses during the week and at bars or music venues on the weekends, so if you’re not a resident of Omaha, be sure to put Fauxmaha Hot Dogs on your itinerary the next time you take a road trip!
