Best Indian in Austin
24 May 2009
Perhaps not the most authentic place for Indian, but it's delicious nonetheless. The samosas are great. They know what vegan means, too, and have even started to label such items on the menu.
The atmosphere is nice, for dressy-ish or casual occassions. Like another reviewer said, though, it does get quite noisy, so i may not be the perfect date place.

This is a nice little spot the just opened a couple weeks ago. The folks who run it are nice and the food is super tasty. I tried a couple of the wraps - the seitan was super tender and the veggies were nice and fresh. Pretty much everything is vegan and made from scratch (including the mayo), but some of the wraps have an option between Daiya and dairy cheese. They're also on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/consciouscravings

Sue's trailer is a great spot to grab a bite. It's on a cool little block (North Loop) in North/Central Austin, and there are picnic tables to eat at and a convenience store to buy drinks (or you can just bring your own). The sandwiches are great - the Philly Seitan rivals the Wheatsville deli's Popcorn Tofu Poboy for best vegan sandwich in town. There are also weekly specials that are quite good. Sunday brunch is also great, it lasts from 12 to 2 with a menu that also changes week-to-week. There are also occasional events, especially if the weather's nice. The best way to get updated on the specials and events is to friend Counter Culture on Facebook, but you can also see them via countercultureaustin.com. Remember that it's cash only and that it's only open Thu-Sat 12-8 and Sun 12-6 (this may change with the seasons).

Make sure it's vegan
24 May 2009
This place can be OK, but it can be tough to get an accurate answer on what's vegan or not. Like much of Indian cuisine, ghee (clarified butter) pretty much seeps into everything, making Indian food perhaps the least vegan-friendly vegetarian out there. It seems like anytime my friends and I go in there, we get a different answer. If you want to be more certain, Clay Pit knows what vegan means, labels items on the menu, and is perhaps the best Indian place in town.

I just went there today, and it was really damn tasty. I can't really add much without being redundant. Try the vegan sesame chicken, it was awesome.

Good, but make sure it's vegan

Most of the time this place gets it right, but I went with a group of vegan friends one time and they used TofuRella (which has casein) on their "vegan" pizza. This was at the Hyde Park location. Just call ahead to make sure they have FYH.

Very vegan-friendly, local place

Wheatsville is the favorite place for those who want a smaller, less over-the-top version of the downtown Whole Foods. They serve meat, but they have a ton of vegan stuff, and their deli is especially awesome for vegans. Try the Popcorn Tofu if they have it in stock (by the pound or as a sandwich).

It's pretty typical of Whole Foods stores. Huge, corporate, and pricey. That said, as a vegan, it makes going back to my hometown so much easier.
NOTE: This was formerly known as Wild Oats, and Wild Harvest before that.

Nice vegan resource

A huge store with a great selection of stuff for vegans. Pretty much has anything you'll need. The prepared foods areas especially are spectacular - there's a raw/vegan station near the produce section, vegan pizza with FYH in the pizza station, vegan baked goods in the bakery area in the back, among others. Awesome stuff - you gotta love grocery stores that essentially double as food courts! Prepare to shell out some cash, though, if you do a lot of you're shopping here. Plus the meat department is unfortunately huge as well.
