Best Of Houston® 2020: Best Vegan

Best Vegan: Verdine

For years, Chef Stephanie Hoban has been delivering creative and tasty vegan cuisine to Houstonians via her uber-popular food truck Ripe Cuisine. Now in brick-and-mortar form, Verdine provides the same delicious product in a sleek new setting with locally produced beer and biodynamic wine to pair.

The slow-smoked jackfruit carnitas, the Bistro Burger, the Southern Gent Po Boy with cornmeal battered cauliflower and oyster mushrooms—clean substitutes to the crave-able vehicles Houstonians ache for. The Coconut Tofu Broccoli Bowl and Ancient Grains Salad are popular too. Whether it’s one meal a week or you’re a full-blown 24/7 vegan, Verdine delivers on flavor every time.
