in Dining & Nightlife by

Hungry’s Cafe has long been a Houston favorite, and no wonder—their healthy, delicious entrees and refined atmosphere are a winning combination. Since the mid-1970s, their health-conscious international cuisine has attracted discerning diners and vegetarians alike.

Now, Hungry’s has taken another exciting step: The debut of a brand new Vegan Features menu. The daily offerings, which are available at both Hungry’s locations, have deepened their commitment to a healthy lifestyle and delighted customers.

Each day of the week, two new vegan dishes appear alongside the usual array of entrees on the dine-in menu. In typical Hungry’s fashion, the new dishes traverse a wide range of flavors and styles.

Those looking for a vegan twist on an American deli favorite might try the “Original” Beet Reuben, available on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Atop the classic foundation of rye, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing, Hungry’s has added caramelized beets and vegan mozzarella and mayonnaise.

For a more savory, umami kick, look no further than a pair of dishes featuring seitan, a high-protein meat substitute made of wheat gluten. The “Awesome” Spicy Seitan “Beef” Tacos are served with traditional Tex-Mex accoutrements like shredded cabbage and Spanish rice, while the “Vegan Cowboy” Seitan “Steak” makes use of meaty portobello mushrooms and sautéed vegetables.

Other newcomers include a “Humble” Power Bowl of soba noodles, kale, quinoa, lentils, and beets, and “Fabulous” Tuscan Tofu with a sauce of sun-dried tomato, apricot, and walnut.

Carnivores needn’t feel left out. With everything from gyros, kabobs, and salmon to meatloaf, fried chicken, and steak sandwiches on the menu, any Hungry’s diner is sure to find something to their taste.

Hungry’s boasts two Houston locations—one in Rice Village, and one in West Houston on Memorial Drive. Visit their website for reservations, online ordering, or more information.
