Continuing my exploration of Veggie food in Houston, these are the new places that I tried:
Veggie Food in Houston
- Kiran’s: Probably the best Indian food that you would get in Houston, great ambiance, located close to Galleria in a prime hub of the city. The chef comes around and meets people and gives a very personal touch to the whole thing. The quality of food was good along with the inviting presentation of the food.
- Lupe Tortillas – A popular Mexican chain, but an absolute NO for vegetarians, they tried to prepare something for us but failed miserably. Though I liked the ambiance, quite authentic Mexican with Hat lamps on each table.
- Bombay sweets at Hillcroft – The usual chat / Mithai and food shop in Indian areas anywhere. The whole feel of the place is ‘Oh I can finally smell some familiar food’, and ‘I can speak my language without having to explain what it means’ and ‘I don’t have to ask‘. “Do you have anything vegetarian on your menu?’’. Chats are ok, but I would recommend going only if you are really missing them?
- El Imperial, FM1960 – An Okie Dokie Mexican joint. Nothing great and nothing bad, you will get the typical Fajitas and Nachos and Salsa and Enchiladas.
- Jason’s Deli – You have at least three soups to choose from, all of which are good, and you can couple it with some tomato-basil pasta.
- Shehnai – A good Indian restaurant, with a usual Indian set-up and usual Indian menu.
- Thali, US – 59, – An authentic Gujarati restaurant, with good food. The spread is huge. The best part is the owner serves the food himself. And like a host he insists on you to try various items and keeps on insisting you, to take some more food. You almost feel you are a guest at someone’s place rather than a restaurant. You must have Pooran Poli if you are there.
- Cold Stone – The creamery with amazing names and pictures of ice-creams. I did not find ice-creams any different, though.
- Mediterranean, Galveston – Amazing food, must visit for anyone visiting Galveston.
- Adelitas, Kuykundel Road – A low-end Mexican joint, but good food. They do not fry their Quesadillas like most other Mexican joints.
Bon Appetite… enjoy your Veggie Food in Houston.
