Vegeria is San Antonio’s only fully vegan restaurant. Are the city’s vegans rejoicing that they have a restaurant for their needs? Especially a spot with a pleasant deck?
And signage that would make a cool tattoo?
In addition to the deck, Vegeria has a simple but pleasant indoor dining room.
The menu has a Mexican influence, with dishes such as potato poblano lentil cakes and quinoa burritos. They have tamales and baked treats, which can be hard to find in vegan versions. And salads and sandwiches, including a BBQ one made with mushrooms.
I started with the vegetarian posole because the server said she loves it so much, she sometimes has it twice a day.
The garlic and chili broth with hominy was delicious. I wish it were easier to find versions of posole made without chicken stock. (At least it’s rarely made with human flesh these days, in the style of the Aztecs.)
Next up, green chili lentil burger:
The side salad was fresh, but the lentil burger itself was very dry. It needed something (oil? mushrooms? tomato paste?) to keep it moist. The green chili sauce, while tasty, didn’t add enough moisture to this dish.
Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Maybe, when in San Antonio, one shouldn’t venture too far from the local specialties. If I find myself in Vegeria again, I’ll try the enchiladas. And a giant bowl of the posole, please.
