Only one item on the menu is specifically labeled "vegan," but inquire about other options, and you'll find a whole host of dishes for your vegan dining pleasure. Nearly every dish is customizable, and many of them can be made gluten free in addition to meat- and dairy-free. The menu of Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese dishes does contain some meat, but anything that doesn't explicitly list meat is vegetarian, and most of those can be vegan as well. Try the popular Art Car Curry with potatoes, mushrooms, carrots and tofu served over jasmine rice for a super flavorful look at what vegan food can be.

Green is an import from San Antonio, and I can personally attest to the fact that it's difficult to get tired of the options here, as I used to eat at Green all the time in college. It's steadfastly vegetarian--not vegan--but any dish not on the breakfast menu (there are a lot of eggs in that section) can be made vegan with simple cheese substitutions. 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.

Have you ever met a Vegan that isn't neurotic? I haven't, but I'm open to that notion.

Doshi house is not vegan, Green Vegetarian is way more vegan friendly than written about and Quan Yin is 100% vegan.

Pine Forest is not on this list and really blows away several of these cafes!

@Iggy They really should be the food there is beyond lousy/mediocre especially the Post Oak location. Jenni is great, her restaurants well....

Not sure if I recall meeting one that wasn't neurotic, but I'm pretty sure I've never met one that wasn't self-righteous.
