Ruffles Green

Before I tell you about my experience here, let me just say that the best part of eating out as a vegan at a non vegan restaurant, is that your food comes out fast and is prepared fresh. Now this restaurant is located in The Woodlands and if anyone knows the area, you know its…

Tout Suite’s Vegan Falafel Sandwich

The best way to get repeat vegan customers to a non vegan restaurant is to have vegan options on the menu, actual vegan options, not salads. A lot of non vegan restaurants think that a way to serve vegans is to have salads. I’m here to tell you that’s more of an insult if anything. …

Nourish Juice Bar

Located off W Gray, this juice bar is so amazing and I love the atmosphere. I had been there once before. I ordered the Pink Starbust juice and a Buddha bowl. Both were absolutely amazing. The juice really tasted like candy and the kick from the ginger was perfect.  The Buddha bowl was a curry…

Vegan Tamales and Cupcakes @ Dan Electro’s

I don’t typically go into Houston that often because I hate the traffic and it’s a helluva commute but when I saw this event was in The Heights, and that’s fairly close to me, I was down.  It’s located off 24th street and it’s a fairly small venue with a backyard patio. I actually only…

Snooze A.M. Eatery

I am apart of a group called Awkward Black Ladies on Facebook and one of the ladies, Ashley, posted about going to brunch. I’ve never gone to brunch before because there aren’t any places I know of that serve a vegan brunch, or vegan breakfast period, in Houston. So I responded anyway because 1). I want…

Tout Suite HTX

I stumbled upon this place on Instagram from someone I followed. They were listed as a suggestion. I saw all the pictures on their page and knew I had to check them out. Once I got here, I could tell it was it by the white and black building and their symbol on the doors….

Unity Vegan Kitchen Review

If I could give more than 5 stars dammit I would. This food truck was my initial first stop on this tour but because of my schedule and their hours, I ended up having to save the best for last.  First let me say, the woman who took my order, I believe it was Leslie…

24 Diner Review 

My first time coming here was in 2010 when my brother graduated with his undergrad degree. This is one of his favorite restaurants and it’s open 24 hours, like in the name. It wasn’t crowded the first time we came and it wasn’t crowded this time. Another major thing I like was it wasn’t cold….

The Vegan Nom Review

If I tell y’all that the taco I had should be damn illegal and questionable about being vegan. I’ve never had a vegan taco that taste so damn good and was super flavorful. I am a huge fan of food trucks and I loved the location. There was no long line and they prepare your…

Capital City Bakery Review

This was my first stop when coming into Austin. I have been a loyal follower for quite sometime now on Instagram. This is a cute little bakery located on Ceasar Chavez. I got two cupcakes, the butterscotch chocolate and the pumpkin carrot cake. The lady who took my order was super friendly and helpful. I…

Review: Sambuca 

This was a really nice restaurant with a warming, intimate atmosphere. They have live music, friendly staff and a beautiful outside seating area.  The main thing I didn’t like was their lack of vegan options. I could only eat the sides because most everything is premade, though I don’t want to eat anything premade that’s…

Proclaim Professional Care: Review and Wash Day Routine

I am not a product junkie, therefore I don’t typically go out and buy products for my hair. I normally use the Aussie Mega Moist shampoo and conditioner and pre-poo my hair with coconut oil the night before. However, I have been binge watching wash day routines and figured it was maybe time to change…

13 Reasons Why: There are Always Signs of Suicide

I finished watching 13 Reasons Why, finally. I have so many thoughts and emotions about it because when I was in high school, we didn’t have to deal with the things the kids are dealing with in the show or what the kids are dealing with today. I was in high school when social media…

Review: InstaCleaner App, How to Clean Your Instagram

This is probably one of the best apps I have used to date to keep my Instagram on point. This app does it all. I will say that it does have its restrictions and limits just like Instagram. Fifty is the max number of people you can follow/unfollow as well as the number of pictures…

Restaurant Review: Verts Mediterranean Grill 5*

I am a huge sucker for Mediterranean food. I love falafel, baklava and hummus. I have always been in love with ethnic food and more willing to try it since I am a POC (person of color). I will try anything as long as it’s vegan. Verts is located off I45 and Louetta, located in…

Underground: Season 2, Ep. 2, “Things Unsaid” Recap *SPOILERS*

We start off with the guy from last week who was teaching himself to read. He was sounding out the word “soldier.” We see him come in and write something on a piece of paper for his wife. Her facial expression changes quickly when she realizes that he’s learning to read, which we all know…

Underground: Season 2, Episode 1 (Recap)

I am so excited that Underground is back. It has easily become one of my favorite shows since the first episode. Last season we left off with Rosalee still running and trying to find Noah. Aisha Hinds plays Harriett and I have been waiting to see episodes with her. I loved her in Hawthorne and…

Get Out | Movie Review

I initially wanted to see this movie due to the fact that how it was advertised as a horror movie, and I am a huge fan of horror movies. What this movie really was, was the blatant truth that many people don’t want to admit. You know the ones who say, “I’ll believe it when…

4* for Adair Kitchen and Black Vegans of Houston MeetUp

One of the things I want to be better about this year is joining Meetup groups and actually going to the Meetups. I have been apart of the Black Vegans of Houston for two years now, since the last Vegfest in Houston. I hade never been to any of the events and I could kick…

5* for Urban Harvest Farmer’s Market Eastside

This farmer’s market has to be my favorite mainly because all of my fave vegan places are there and it’s proximity to my fave Whole Food’s Market and vegan restaurants. Another great thing is the major diversity with the vendors and the consumers. I feel more comfortable at this location. This farmer’s market has a…

3* for Rice Farmer’s Market

Normally I only go to Urban Harvest Farmer’s Market Eastside but they are closed until February, so I decided to try a new farmer’s market. I wouldn’t say I regret going, but it was an experience. Let’s start with the positive. I initially went because it was Ripe Cuisine’s last stop before the holiday. Ripe…
