Last night I took my little cousin Peaches to dinner at Houston’s Restaurant. Houston’s is fine dining American restaurant known for their steaks. Even though being vegan is new to me, I don’t ever remember having a steak there before. On my visit before last night I had the Sashimi Tuna Salad. It is very good!! I pulled the menu up online before going to ensure I could have more than just a salad. I did not want just a salad. Well, luckily for me they had a few options I could make vegan. Here is what I had.
It was a chilly night, so I wanted something warm to start off. This Organic Mint Melange tea by Mighty Leaf Tea did the trick. I don’t usually put sweetener in my tea, so the lemon was fine.
I ordered the Kale Salad and it was wonderful!!! The kale was very thinly sliced and the dressing was creamy. It had peanuts sprinkled on the plate which gave it a nice crunchy texture. Peaches even liked it, and she thinks I eat weird. I would highly recommend you try this, vegan or not.
I chose the House-made Veggie Burger and fries as my entree. The burger is made of brown rice, black bean and oat bran. It comes on a bun with jack cheese. I omitted both. The burger was not exactly what I was expecting. It was quit awful actually. I could only taste rice and oat bran. The texture was too mushy for me. I wanted something I could bite into. It just was not good to me. I only ate a few bites and finished my fries. I will not order this item again.
I wanted desert, but there was not one for me on the menu. Peaches had 2 scoops of house made vanilla ice cream with hot fudge sauce. Watching her enjoy this was sweet enough for me.
Overall, I was very happy to see that one of my favorite restaurants had some vegan options. They have a seasonal vegetable plate that comes with couscous that I will try on my next visit.
