"Eat your veggies" has plagued all of us. Thank goodness for places that make even tempeh sound delicious to meat lovers. The mostly vegetarian menu (ask for any item to be vegan) includes a couple of fish items for those who simply can't live without more traditional protein sources (the wild grilled salmon is delish!). For the rest, enjoy veggie fajitas or vegan fish tacos, an amazing Eden burger on a whole grain Ezekial bun, or eggplant parmesan. Don't miss the soups or anything with avocado. Besides being a great lunch spot, try brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. - JoAnn Takasaki
Mystical art adorns the walls of this health-nut paradise that has been taking care of Houston hearts for many years. Those with artistic spirits are particularly attracted to the somewhat Bohemian atmosphere. Outside dining on a shady deck is extremely popular in fair weather. A few unhealthy menu options are available such as a hefty hamburger—but vegetarian choices like the spinach and mushroom enchiladas are the true crowd-pleasing items. Even the desserts manage to be tempting without overwhelming the body with fat and calories.
Family owned and operated, Blue Nile is an authentic Ethiopian restaurant. The traditional cuisine offered here is heavy on the vegetable side accompanied by spicy meat. Most dishes are large enough to share and come with Injera bread for dipping. They also have a wide range of vegetarian options. The Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony is a must try, the coffee is freshly roasted and brewed onsite when ordered!
