Exodus From Port Aransas (RESTAURANT REVIEW - Vegeria, San Antonio, TX)
When April left Port Aransas, she had hoped to eat at Yin Yang Fandango & Tango Tea Room in Corpus Christi, but since Monday was a holiday, they apparently decided not to open.
April and her friends decided to stop at Vegeria on the way back to Austin instead.
8407 Broadway, San Antonio, TX 78209
The last couple of times April visited Vegeria, they had a full menu which featured all sorts of yummy dishes, including a burrito stuffed with two tamales that she thought would be delicious. On this trip, they were instead offering a buffet of salads, soups, and pasta -
April decided to try a little of everything. The Not-So-Chicken Salad and Sweet Potato Salad were favorites, but it was all delicious. The biscuits were extra-tasty.
Vegeria was having a "buy two, get one free" dessert special, and since April wanted the Chocolate Peanut Butter Quinoa Cup, Hedgie fancied the Black Pepper & Sea Salt Chocolate Pie, and Buttercup had her eye on the Payday Bar, April decided to get all three.
The Peanut Butter Cup was ooey-gooey and very rich, with just a bit of crunch. The pie was rich enough to require sharing between April and her fiance, Tim (the hedgehogs had tiny nibbles). The Payday bar was also yummy, though April never had an actual Payday bar in her pre-vegan days, so can't speak to the accuracy of the taste.
On the way out, Hedgie pointed out some Doctor Who art on the wall. Yay, geeky vegans!
Here's some pictures from previous Vegeria visits -
