Where To Eat Vegan At Minute Maid Stadium
With Astros tickets in hand, Houston baseball fans eagerly await the 2014 season. Their team is looking great, and Minute Maid Stadium’s food options are looking just as good.
Mat Drain, food organizer for Minute Maid Stadium, said, “We started preparing new items the moment last season ended… Fans are more educated and demanding when it comes to food. We look at the total game experience, and that includes quality food and many choices.”
Fruit Smoothies and Fruit Cups
Are you looking for a healthier, vegan alternative to a milkshake? Minute Maid fruit smoothies are served throughout the stadium. With flavors like Mango, Lemon, Banana, Pomegranate Berry, Strawberry, and Raspberry, you’ll be sure to find a smoothie that will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Alternatively, maybe you prefer your fruit straight up. In that case, try a fruit cup from The Green Fork in section 116. Either way, you’ll get a tasty vegan treat.
While many stadiums offer salads as a healthy food option, few can compare to the variety offered at The Green Fork. With over 30 topping options, a variety of optional proteins (yes, a few meats, but also tofu and beans), and 10 dressing options, you can rest assured that you’ll get a delicious, filling vegan salad.
If you would prefer not to design your salad to the last detail, head over the FiveSeven Grille for a hand tossed salad and a relaxed atmosphere.
Veggie Hot Dogs and Burritos
Served with your choice of toppings on a gluten-free bun, the veggie dog at Minute Maid stadium has become an instant veggie classic. However, a quick word of caution: reports vary on whether the veggie dog is vegan or vegetarian. According to VeggieHappy.com, the dogs contain egg whites while Lone Star Plate says that they’re Smart Dogs and are, therefore, vegan. If the possible egg whites bother you, ask the vendor. They may be able to clarify the situation.
If you’d like to venture off the traditional vegan culinary path, try the burritos at Goya Latin Cafe – just tell them to hold the cheese and sour cream and you’ve got a delicious vegan meal! While you’re there, indulge in a little frozen Sangria or a Margarita for an additional vegan treat.
If you’re lucky enough to be seated on the club level, check out the vegan sushi that’s rolled to order. The vegetables are incredibly fresh, and it’s fun watching them put your food together right in front of you. If you’re not on the club level, don’t worry, you can buy a $5 pass to get up to the club level for food before returning to your seat.
As you can see, there are many options for vegans at Minute Maid Stadium beyond the typical soft pretzels, popcorn, baked potatoes, and cracker jacks (which are, of course, also available).
