Green Seed Vegan (Houston)

Rating: A

I was surprised how good the food here was.  It doesn't look that great from the outside (the area is a little sketchy), but everything I've tried has been great. The people who work here aren't super friendly, but it's not like they're mean.  It's more like Starbucks in a small town vs. Starbucks in NYC. Anyway, I've tried the Notyo Salad, The Tacos, the Sweet Potato Fries, and the Latini Panini on a brown rice wrap so far.  I've loved everything I've tried. 

Notyo Salad - Walnut sunflower chorizo, cheese, avocado, pico, cashew cream, and cilantro limon over microgreens

This salad was really flavorful. It looks bigger than it actually is because I have the Rockin Tacos on my plate too, just as a heads up.  I love what they did with the salad.  It's essentially a vegan taco salad, and their "Meat"/(walnut sunflower chorizo) and Cashew Cream are delicious!

 

Latini Panini - Chipotle Garbanzo Tempeh with avocado, cilantro, tomato, and chipotle aioli

This was delicious, although tasted much sweeter than I expected it to taste. I would definitely order it again!




Vegeria (San Antonio)

Rating: A

My favorite thing about Vegeria (other than the Super Human Nachos) is that everything in the entire restaurant is vegetarian and gluten free. I has really become one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio.  It's very casual, so don't expect anything fancy when you're going there, but the food really does speak for itself.  I have loved everything I've ever tried there. The servers are also incredible nice.  I haven't met an unfriendly one yet.  This is what I've tried and really liked at Vegeria:

  • *Super Human Nachos-  "Loaded with protein and probiotics, these nachos will leave you feeling super human. Piled high with our housemade tortilla chips, refried pinto beans, quinoa, sliced avocado, hemp hearts, pepperjack cheese, and Kim Chi." (MY FAVORITE)
  • Classic Vegan Nachos- "A mountain of tortilla chips piled high with vegan queso, quinoa, veggie taco filling, pico de gallo, and guacamole. Drizzled with our homemade Avocado Ranch"
  • Spinach Huitlacoche Enchiladas
  • Una Tostada
  • Kale Salad with ginger dressing
  • Sweet Potato Poblano Flautas
  • Chilaquiles (They grew on me)

Kale Salad

I love this salad.  The kale is really tender

Sweet Potato Poblano Flautas

 

 

Mole Chilaquiles with Pumpkin Seeds 

"A new take on a classic chilaquiles. Toasted corn tortillas on a bed of refried beans topped with queso, spicy chocolate mole sunflower cream and pumpkin seeds."

The first time I tried these, I thought they were okay, but the flavor became sort of addictive for me, and by the end of the meal, they were all I was eating.  The mole brings a sort of sweet flavor and then you have the savory flavor of the queso and the addition of the pumpkin seeds . In some ways, they don't feel like a real meal, but they're really good.

 

Spinach Huitlacoche Enchiladas

"Three creamy, savory and rich enchiladas. Sautéed garlic, onion, spinach and huitlchoche. Rolled into three soft corn tortillas topped with queso and sunflower seed cream."

Definitely recommend these.  They were really filling though..
