Q: I have a client coming in tonight at 8:30 p.m. who is vegan. Do you have any suggestions? My only suggestion is Star of India, which closes at 10. The place doesn’t have to be solely vegan, but it needs to have vegan options. Any ideas?
A: Indian restaurants like Star of India, 2267 N.W. Military Hwy., have plenty of vegan as well as vegetarian options.
San Antonio’s only completely vegetarian restaurant, Green Vegetarian Cuisine, 1017 N. Flores St., has plenty of vegan options, but it closes at 9 p.m.
You could also try one of the area’s growing number of Thai restaurants, such as Thai Dee, 5307 Blanco Road, and Bangkok Cuisine, 8214 Pat Booker Road, Universal City. Another is Rock San Sushi and Thai Restaurant, 5238 DeZavala Road, which does not have regular vegan options; but if you ask, the kitchen will happily make a vegan dish for you.
Shiraz, 4230 McCullough Ave., prides itself on offering meals catered to people’s dietary needs. The restaurant is open until 10 p.m.
Beto’s Comida Latina, 7325 Broadway, will modify its recipes to make them vegan friendly. Hours vary, but the restaurant is open until 10 p.m. Thursdays and midnight Fridays and Saturdays.
P.F. Chang’s also has a variety of dishes that can be modified to be vegan at both their Quarry location, 255 E. Basse, and Rim location, 15900 LaCantera Parkway Bldg. #1. Steamed Buddha’s Feast would be a great option as well as Stir-Fried Spinach with tofu added.
