i just traveled from Minneapolis to South Padre Island, Texas and it’s almost sad to say that as a vegan who avoids gluten, i found more accommodating restaurants along the way than i can ever find at home! but, i should clarify; i wouldn’t expect such 5-star treatment just anywhere in texas, but i was fortunate enough to get to pass through Austin twice. even the Fort Worth area known as ‘cow town’ boasts one of my favorite places, Spiral Diner. it’s a cozy cute eatery that serves up simple, tasty vegan diner food. it was our first stop after exiting our plane before a 10 hour drive south.
dan went for the truck stop burrito and disco hash- a wise choice
this place is super adorable
i ordered the quesadillas
these were bit too heavy on the daiya for my tastes, and the small order was actually quite filling; after my first few bites i declared them to be more like “stuffed nachos”. next time i’m going to split them with someone and get a side order of steamed greens.
i can’t eat somewhere new and not order dessert- especially on vacation! so, we split a creamy, salty little peanut butter cup.
