All of these restaurants with vegan food are within the Houston-area (inside 610), delicious, and meat eater approved.
Vegan food has a reputation for being boring, bland and lacking nutrients.“What do you eat?” “All you eat is veggies?” “Where do you get your protein from?” Since these questions appear more often than not, check out this list of restaurants that are vegan or have animal-free options, which have been approved by several of my chicken wing-devouring friends and family members.
Whether you want your veggies fried, blended, juiced or raw, this is the place to be.
It’s one of my favorite places to go for a quick bite to eat since they have an array of casual favorites that are good for being on-the-go. Think pressed sandwiches, burgers, fries, smoothies, etc. They even have a menu dedicated to raw foodies (I’m not about that life, but if it floats your boat…). The cauliflower nuggets and dill fries are a first-visit must try. I’d even suggest their Green Mile smoothie, which I buy faithfully. Ingredients include mango, collard greens and kale.
It’s a small restaurant close to Third Ward and the Museum District. Expect a slight wait while your food is cooking as their staff quite small.
Endless health-conscious options in one place.
The Urban Harvest Farmers Market is not only known for their produce and locally-produced goods, but also for their food vendors and food trucks. Must try food establishments:
- Ripe Cuisine: Literally TO DIE FOR! My boyfriend, who is nowhere near being vegan, can attest to how good their food is. On Saturday’s, they have a brunch menu that includes maple bacon donuts and a superfood burritos.
- GUUDBELLY: Try any one of their tamales and buy a Hibiscus Limeade for good measure.
- Oddball Eats: Crisp, fresh falafel and hummus.
- Pat Greer’s Kitchen: I’ve never tried their food, but I have tried their homemade kombucha. If you stop by, sample one of their many flavors.
- Sinfull Bakery: Love at first bite. Their Dream Bars and cinnamon rolls are addictive. I actively try to avoid them, but usually get lured in.
- Too Many To Name: The list continues. I just can’t remember every vendor’s/truck’s name. There is usually a guy selling authentic samosas and chutney, which is a must try as well.
I was debating between Torcy’s Tacos and Ruggles Green, but RG’s tacos are weirdly refreshing. Remove the cheese and sauce from their veggie tacos for a filling vegan meal. Torchy’s still has my heart though.
If you’re going out with a group of friends, come here.
This is my favorite place to recommend for a wide-range of diets. The menu, which is based off of the anti-inflammatory diet, has a little something for everybody—meat eaters included. There are gluten-free options, dairy-free pizzas and organic liquors. You’ll leave this restaurant feeling like you did your body some good.
