If you're one of those people (just admit it) who turns his or her nose up at veganism as a fad or an unpleasantly restrictive diet, I encourage you to look at it from another perspective: Think of all the things a vegan can eat.
Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant in Houston, TX, United States
Most of the fruits and vegetables at Radical Eats are locally grown, though the restaurant no longer has its own backyard garden since it's moved to a bigger space on Westheimer. That means more room for brunch, though, the most popular meal of the week.
American Restaurant in San Antonio, TX, United States
If you frequently crave Mexican food, Green is a great place for light but hearty vegan Mexican-inspired dishes like chalupas, enchiladas and tacos. The veggie and mock-meat burgers are also some of the best in town.
Unlike many of the vegetarian/vegan Asian restaurants in Houston that populate Bellaire Boulevard, Pepper Tree is located on Richmond inside the Loop, close enough to placate those wary of Chinatown traffic.
When you're trying really, really hard to go meat free, but you have a craving you just can't shake, head to Quan Yin for some of the best Vietnamese mock-meat dishes around. Everything is vegan--there's no meat, dairy or eggs in any of the dishes.
