Rest of the Best: 10 Best Vegan-Friendly Restaurants in Houston
2. Radical Eats

Staci Davis started Radical Eats as a totally vegetarian/vegan Mexican restaurant, a phrase you don't see very often. It had since evolved to include a few meat dishes--in fact, Davis recently competed at the International Festival's barbecue cookoff with legit beef--but Radical Eats is still popular for it's veggie-friendly cuisine. In fact, Radical Eats is one of the only places in town that makes vegan tortillas with no lard or butter that taste just as good as the fatty real thing. 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.
1. Doshi House

Doshi House, owned by Deepak Doshi and nestled in the southwest corner of the Third Ward, is the best among Houston's limited vegan joints. Functioning as a neighborhood coffee bar (with coffee program overseen by Blacksmith's David Buehrer) and pastry shop by day, at night Doshi House serves up a single dish each evening -- from vegan red beans and rice to vegan Thai curry, often for under $7. Here you can find comfort in a simple, hearty meal in a ragtag neighborhood art gallery-turned-cafe. Whether you're vegan or not, Doshi House's food is just plain good.
