I’ve heard “It must be hard to be vegan in San Antonio!” countless times. I know that statement is not true, so to prove it I started putting together this map about a year ago. When I became vegetarian in 2008 I found that Thai, Chinese, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisines were all inherently vegetarian-friendly. I started to find lots of restaurants that already had vegetarian items on their menu, so it was easy to modify them to be vegan too! Then I started to discover restaurants with vegan dishes already on their menu. This map really began to populate after I was asked by a friend and fellow vegan to recommend some restaurants in San Antonio. After a little more work I decided to share it here on my blog.
In the descriptions of each location I added notes from my own experiences along with links to reviews I have done in the past. I haven’t visited some of the locations on this map, so I’ve also added comments found by users on UrbanSpoon.
I will continue to update this map in the future, but I need your help! Do you have vegan-friendly menu items at your restaurant? Have you visited a vegan-friendly restaurant or store that isn’t on here? Did I get something wrong? Let me know! I’d love to add more locations and update the descriptions!
p.s. After watching an episode of The Next Food Network Star, I realized I use a lot of “buzz words” around here that mean nothing – delicious, awesome, amazing, ect. I’ll try to be more descriptive with my food posts and restaurant reviews. I’m here to share “awesome” vegan food, but really I’m trying to show you that it’s more than awesome – it’s crispy, warm, moist, chewy, and always sweet.
