Tex-Mex is a San Antonio staple. You can’t turn a corner or ramble down the River Walk without spotting an establishment touting tacos, tostadas, or tamales. But when meat is off the menu, be it for weight loss, Lent, or a lifestyle choice, what is someone craving empanadas and enchiladas to do? Hit up the city’s meat-free joints, obviously. Viva Vegeria The city’s oldest vegan Tex-Mex joint opened back in 2011 inside a bookstore before expanding to its current location on Nogalitos Street in 2015.
