Binge Kitchen– This is a small entirely vegan restaurant. I went with my mom and we decided to try a few things. First, I got the charcoal lemonade because it is trendy and I wanted to see what the hype is about. Plus it is fun to drink a black liquid. It was good, but I didn’t find it to be much different than regular lemonade. As an appetizer, we split the Crispy Cauliflower with ranch. This was my first time trying this and it was delicious. My mom ordered the Chipotle Burger. I couldn’t even try thing because she said it tasted exactly like meat and I am not a fan of fake meats. I got the Indian Lentil Madras. It was very good, but I struggled to eat it because of how spicy it was.
I definitely would like to eat here again.
Industry– We went here for my father’s birthday. I ordered the Veggie Gyro without the spicy yogurt. It was similar to a quinoa and black bean burger, but styled in a gyro manner. It was very good. The restaurant also has a good atmosphere and a wide range of alcoholic drinks. It would be a great place to hang out with friends.
A Moveable Feast– This is a natural food store with a restaurant inside. It is near where my cousin lives in Houston and I had been wanting to try it for a very long time. I finally did and I was a little disappointed by how bland it was. I got the Happy Veggie Patty Plate with marinara sauce. I am hoping that if I go back and try something different, it will be better.
Rabbit Food Grocery– This is a vegan specialty store. I will drive to Austin, just to pick up things I struggle to find at a normal grocery store. Because it is a small specialty store, it can be a bit on the expensive side. However, it is nice to be able to eat anything in a store.
Mother’s Cafe– This is an entirely vegetarian and vegan restaurant. The first time I went I got the Vegetable Medley. It was a little on the plan side, but still good. Additionally, I had the delicious Belgium Chocolate Cake.
The second time I went, I got the Spicy Tempeh Enchilada, which comes with a side salad. Even before I was vegan, I wasn’t much of an Enchilada fan, but I wanted to try something new. It wasn’t bad and you will probably like it if you like Enchiladas.
First Watch– I have only ever gone to First Watch for breakfast and have had the following things.
Both of their fresh juices are delicious: Morning Mediation & Kale Tonic
A.M. Superfoods Bowl: This is a delicious coconut milk chia seed pudding. It also comes with a side of toast with topped with almond butter. The first time I went, I was told the bread wasn’t vegan, so I swapped it for a side of fruit. The second time, I was told it was.
I have also gotten a side of the First Watch Potatoes. They are some really good potatoes.
The Village Cafe– They were very polite and helpful when I told them I was vegan. I ordered the Asian Cabbage Slaw salad with Hummus and Pita Bread. It was an odd combination on my part, but both were very delicious.
Since I am here all the time for university, I will just add/update this single post about vegan options around town!
I do the majority of my grocery shopping at either the H-E-B on Texas Ave or William D. Fitch Pkwy. They have a great selection and I usually find most of what I’m looking for.
If I can’t find something at H-E-B or I’m looking for a more specialty item, like vegan nacho cheese dip, I head to one of the natural food stores. I mostly go to Brazos Natural Foods because it is the closest, but I will, also, go to Village Foods Pharmacy in Bryan.
My friends and I have a few favorite restaurants that we always go to. They have, recently been Blaze Pizza, Aji Sushi, and BJ’s.
At Blaze Pizza, their regular crust and original marinara sauce is vegan. They, also, have vegan cheese! I always build my own pizza. I actually prefer to opt-out of having the vegan cheese and just load it with veggies. I absolutely loveeee this pizza.
At Aji Sushi, they have a vegan bento box, that I have actually yet to try! I almost always order the cucumber rolls and the vegetable fried rice without egg. They are super cool about letting you leave out stuff, like the egg in fried rice.
At BJ’s, I have recently been getting one of the following- the Enlightened Kale and Roasted Brussels Sprout Salad with no cheese or the Enlightened Barbacoa Cauliflower Pita Tacos without the cheese or Greek yogurt Creme. I, also, have a French fry obsession and really like theirs. If you are unsure of what to get, ask for their allergy menu! They list everything out, such as what items have dairy and eggs in them.
At Zoë’s Kitchen, okay this menu they have for different diets is the bomb. It is also delicious!
Brazos Proper Texas Kitchen– This restaurant is located inside the hotel on campus. We went here when I graduated the first time. I ordered the Mixed Grain Salad with a side of fries. I highly recommend this salad! They also make really good cocktails.
Shirz Shish Kabob– They list everything on the menu that is vegetarian/vegan. Because it is my favorite, I go the Falafel with rice. I wanted to get it as a sandwich, but was told the pita bread isn’t vegan. For $10, I got enough food for two meals.
