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. Look for the vegan offerings, including an avocado po-boy.

Houston, TX 77082

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.

Houston, TX 77072
(281) 498-7890

It's one of the few vegan spots in that area and will satisfy an authentic Asian cuisine craving. It had us at asparagus soup, but but the tofu and the soy "pork" rolls are great, too.
