Austin, Texas is surprisingly progressive when it comes to the selection of vegan/vegetarian restaurants! I have been using the app, “Happy Cow” to locate all of these amazing spots.
I recently visited the incredibly aesthetically pleasing vegan restaurant, The Citizen Eatery (only to get take-out and miss out on the atmosphere). I can confirm, it tastes just as good out of the box. I ordered the Citizen Power Bowl, consisting of quinoa, avocado, marinated kale, chickpeas, almonds, sunflower seeds, red peppers, tomato, and citrus vinaigrette. I couldn’t leave without indulging with some fries, I left with….a whole lotta them – the mixed basket gives you their house style fries, texas tumbleweed and yuca fries. So. good.
Some other places I cannot wait to visit:
- Plow Burger Food Truck
- Counter Culture
- Capital City Bakery
- Mr. Natural
- Bouldin Creek Cafe
- Beer Plant
