Rest of the Best: 10 Best Vegan-Friendly Restaurants in Houston

With "burgers" this good, you'll forget about meat.
4. Green Seed Vegan
What started as a wildly popular food truck is now a brick-and-mortar restaurant with the same massive following. And why not, when the Dirty Burque veggie burger is enough to make you forget your beef craving, if only for a little while. Also try the Big Tex Burger, featuring fresh jalapeños, red onions and avocados with rich faux cheese. If you're craving a smoothie, but still aiming to be dairy-free, try Green Seed Vegan's creamy smoothies made with vegan ice cream. I sincerely doubt you'll be able to tell the difference.

Mmmm, vegan pho at Cafe TH!
3. Cafe TH
Long considered one of the best places in town for meaty Vietnamese sandwiches and stir frys, Cafe TH also has a special vegan menu wit pho, curry and stir-fried tofu (among other things). Cafe TH doesn't get credit for having the most diverse vegan menu, but what it does offer is some of the best. When chef/owner Minh Nguyen is at the counter, he can work with you to adjust other dishes for your dining sensibilities as well. This is most definitely the spot for vegan pho, though, as Nguyen is able to coax as much flavor out of that veggie broth as the rest of us are out of beef.

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.
