World Vegan Tour 2016 - Houston, TX

There's a cozy little veg-spot in the Upper Kirby District of Houston, TX that I couldn't pass up on this tour. They serve unique deli sandwiches and vegan specialty entrees. I have to admit I've been here many times and love the fact that I can choose something different on the menu each visit. The Field of Greens is a nice spot for a quick vegan/vegetarian friendly lunch. On our most recent trip there we had...

The unique thing about this sandwich is it has multiple layers of flavors and textures including crunchy, spicy, creamy, tangy, smooth, green, flaky, peppery and chewy. There's also a choice of soup, salad or sweet potato fries with your meal and though there is only one vegan creamy dressing that is always served, it is delightful every time. The burrito has just as many flavors and is packed to the rim for a hearty eater like Dr. Chenu. 
Whenever we visit the Field of Greens 230 W. Alabama, Houston, TX 77098,  it's never crowded and the restaurant boast such beautiful plant life all around the inside and outside which keeps the vibe green and healthy. They have an array of condiments to choose from as food flavors lean more toward naturally tasting cuisine instead of salts and sauces. There is one inconsistent thing I have noticed about Field of Greens and that is not having a regular selection of vegan desserts. It's a hit or miss every time and most of the time it's a miss. A little sweet at the end of a great meal is a cultural thing in dining that every restaurant can profit from. Ok let's get the review on today's dishes.

Houston also has several vegan restaurants worth mentioning including Loving Hut in Southwest Houston and Green Seed in Third Ward. More to come on 2016 World Vegan Tour we're hitting the States first and then we'll be taking you north, south, east and west across the waters. Happy Vegan eating!
