Travel: Veg Guide to Austin

Last night I went to an all girls-vegan-fondue party, read about it on my other blog, Daily January HERE. And after having such a great night with a bunch of super cool new vegan friends, what could make my day that much better? A surprise in my mailbox.

My Free VegAustin Vegetarian Guide to Austin just came in the mail today and I'm so excited to check out all of the restaurants I haven't tried yet. Though we don't eat out too often, this list is going to give us more reason to treat ourselves, and indulge more.

The brochure is just one tri-folded page, but lists dozens of places, from food trailers to fine dining suitable for veggies and vegans alike. You can sign up to have a Free copy sent to you HERE, but I'm going to go ahead and give the full list with links, because I'm that excited about it:

* = ones I've tried (all of which have been good ** if they are great)
+ = ones I'm most looking forward to trying


East Austin:
Cheer up Charlies + (all veg)
Mr. Natural * (two locations, all veg)

North Austin:
Counter Culture ** (all vegan)
