Gianna's Grille in Philadelphia Metro, Pennsylvania

Good vegan/vegetarian junk food. Can leave your stomach hurting sometimes, but it's junk food after all. Their desserts leave a lot to be desired, but their vegan pizzas are usually pretty good. With their history of inexact-vegan-knowledge, I'm always left worrying, though...

I've only ordered from them once and have never eaten in their restaurant, but the one time I *did* order, I received my vegetarian spring rolls, but one had shrimp in it. Also, the orange beef I got was wicked chewy and just weird.

I'm willing to chalk up the shrimp roll to one of those things that just happens, but with other options nearby, I'm reluctant to order from them any time soon.

Horizon's is a great place you can take anyone to. It's a very social, and can get rather loud (and busy!) on weekends. It's one of those few places that's welcoming to vegans, vegetarians, and non-veg*ans. The menu is very vegan friendly with nearly, if not all, lunch/dinner items able to be made vegan. Dessert is another issue...

Word of advice: Make reservations for the weekends. And make them for early! 7 PM reservations can still leave you waiting 30 minutes. And it's BYOB.

Magic Carpet Foods in Philadelphia Metro, Pennsylvania

A small food truck manned by 2 guys who work their butts off. Their seitan peppersteak is awesome, and everything else on their menu that I've tried is decent enough to be served in a small restaurant, yet it's sold on the sidewalk.

During the school year, expect there to be a line down the block waiting for lunch!

Singapore Vegetarian in Philadelphia Metro, Pennsylvania

While it can be a little oily, this is still my favorite place in Chinatown. Their mock meats are pretty good but not very real in flavor (which, to me, is a huge plus).

Sri Balaji Bhavan in Houston, Texas

Pretty amazing tucked in the corner of a strip mall. I took the easy way out and got their buffet and was happy to see tons of vegan and vegetarian options (typical of most Indian places, granted, but you never know).

If you're in Houston and like Indian, this place is definitely worth checking out.
