On top of our list of 4 vegetarian options in uptown we have True Food Kitchen! This eatery prides itself on preparing and serving foods crafted to high nutritional standards while offering nutritionally-sound ingredients.
Fun fact- this restaurant was actually founded by a physician with a background in integrative medicine. That’s the reason why their menu is designed with the idea that food should make you feel good without sacrificing flavor. Though there is so much to choose from, they have dishes that change seasonally to ensure ingredients are fresh and readily available, you can always count on gluten-free and vegetarian/ vegan options with consideration for those with dietary restrictions.
Great spot to grab brunch or dinner.
Another great vegetarian spot in Uptown is the Roostar Vietnamese Grill. When you visit, be sure to try their banh mi, alphabet soup, or vermicelli bowls, these are the dishes locals are raving about and sharing online.
The authentic Banh Mis are loaded with goodies like crispy tofu, pickled vegetables, and fresh garlic aioli—all of which are made in house. YUM! Fun fact, Roostar was named 2015 Best Banh Mi by Houston Press and one of the Top 100 Places to Eat in the U.S. by Yelp.
Burganic Hub is another great vegetarian spot in Uptown to try! This eatery is known for its tasty burgers and firmly states that all of their “burganic” dishes are packed with flavor and not hormones or antibiotics that could be harmful to your health and body. They have a whole section of meatless burgers including a falafel burger you have to try!
Here is where you can find guilt-free lunch and dinner options on the menu and a relaxing atmosphere to match!
One thing to note is that Flower Child prides itself on offering ingredients that are prepared in-house and presenting the highest quality vegan, paleo-friendly and gluten-free dishes for you to enjoy. When you stop by, be sure to try their avocado hummus, vegan poke or their spicy Japanese eggplant. You can thank us later.
