We saw signs that this trend is changing, but healthy food is hard to come by in San Antonio. It's a city where Mexican food, Tex-Mex, and soul food prevail. Queso and fried food tend to dominate the menus in this fine city where good, tasty food is not hard to come by.
Green Vegetarian Cuisine is the health food beacon in a city dominated by greasy spoons. And maybe it's ironic that Green was started by the two sons of Lulu who owns and operates Lulu's Bakery & Cafe, touting the best chicken fried steak in the city and home of the 3lb cinnamon roll! Green couldn't be more opposite than Lulu's.
Green does healthy right, offering vegan and gluten-free options. Their dessert and pastry bar does not disappoint with a plethora of cupcake selections of all flavors (yes, they are healthy cupcakes).
The restaurant is conveniently located in the Pearl Brewery Complex, so save room for a meal here on your next trip to San Antone!
