Vegan MoFo #1: Ruggles Green - Houston, TX

WELCOME TO VEGAN MOFO 2013! I will start with my farewell lunch from my old job a few weeks ago. I wanted to pick a spot where everyone in my old lab would find something. I had heard Ruggles Green is a little pricey, so I was hesitant, but my old boss offered to pay. I picked the vegetarian tacos made with mushrooms and veggies, then requested Daiya cheese to veganize the meal. The habanero salsa had a kick, so I just used a few drops per taco. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their non-vegan food, so this is a good spot for a mixed crowd. The parking lot was the worst part, because it was a bit small and mostly full at lunchtime.

  1. I'm eying that salsa. I love spicy!

  2. Nice! Those tacos look super yum and your (former) boss sounds pretty considerate too!

  3. They were so good, like the mushrooms were possibly marinated before being cooked. The avocado was the creamy element, but I had to order the Daiya to encourage them to keep it on the menu.
