Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Shiv Sagar

Copy Link
6662 Southwest Fwy
Houston, TX 77074
(713) 977-0150
This is my go-to place for chaat, smaller Indian plates that satisfy a craving without leaving you feeling too full. Veggie options for the spice-addicted abound. Another good thing: A three-piece order of samosas is under $3 here.

2. Sunshine's Health Food Store & Deli

Copy Link
4915 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Houston, TX 77021
(713) 643-2884
This South Union food store doubles as a vegetarian deli. It was selling great kale salads before they became a "Thing" at fancy, high-end establishments in town. The avocado po-boy is a personal favorite.

3. Pat Greer's Raw Vegan Kitchen

Copy Link
412 W Clay St
Houston, TX
(713) 807-0101
Visit Website
It's a vegan restaurant in a small house in Midtown/Montrose--so don't pass it up when looking for it. Although it's gourmet vegan, the prices are surprisingly reasonable. And the hemp and sage burger is delicious, even for a carnivore.

4. Quan Yin Vegetarian Restaurant

Copy Link
10830 Bellaire Blvd
Houston, TX 77072
(281) 498-7890
Visit Website
It had us at asparagus soup, but but the tofu and the soy "pork" rolls are great, too. Bonus: It will be open Christmas Eve, Christmas and NYE.

5. green seed vegan

Copy Link
4320 Almeda Rd
Houston, TX 77004
(713) 487-8346
Visit Website
This former food truck is now a brick-and-mortar shop at Wheeler and Almeda. Owners Matti Merrell and Rodney Perry use buckwheat patties and vegan cheese to make flavorful, ultra filling burgers. Don't leave here without ordering a fruit blend shake to go with your Big Tex Burger.

6. Shri Balaji Bhavan

Copy Link
5655 Hillcroft St
Houston, TX 77036
(713) 783-1126
The vegetarian biryani here will make you forget about meat, and dosas are a nice breakfast option for when you're stuck in a morning rut.

7. Radical Eats

Copy Link
507 Westheimer
Houston, TX 77006
(713) 697-8719
Visit Website
This once small vegan Mexican restaurant moved into a massive Montrose space (formerly Roots Bistro) and added an omnivore-friendly menu. It opened to the public at this location just four months ago. Even with meat dishes added, the fried avocado tacos are still a personal favorite.

8. Field of Green's

Copy Link
2320 W Alabama St
Houston, TX 77098
(713) 533-0029
Visit Website
The Upper Kirby restaurant isn't always consistent, but if you catch them on a good day, you'll be happy with your grilled cheese and hummus wrap. Plus, it's convenient for the outside-the-Loop averse.

9. Udipi Cafe

Copy Link
5959 Hillcroft St
Houston, TX 77036
Veggie food is never bland or boring here. Choose a thali for a good sampling, or grab a dosa. Have raita or mango lassi on hand to quell the heat.

10. Loving Hut

Copy Link
2825 S. Kirkwood
Houston, TX 77082
If you can't commit to one cuisine for your vegetarian meal, head here. Everything from Asian to American to Italian influences are on the menu. The curry and eggplant were surprisingly good on a recent visit.
