Do you love going to Chinese food buffets but regret the decision before you’ve even finished your first plate? Are you tired of all the MSG-rich meats that are so easy on the eyes but hard on the stomach? Suffer in silence no more because Pepper Tree Veggie Cuisine offers a buffet line that you can actually tell your family and friends about!
Located at the corner of Richmond and Weslayan, Pepper Tree has been offering Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai dishes with a vegetarian twist to the Houston area for over eight years. This Asian-themed restaurant is a great dining alternative for any Buddhist practitioners who have adapted to or are trying to transition to a diet free of animal products.
Respect for all forms of life is one of the Buddhist teachings that is perhaps hardest to follow because it implies following a vegetarian diet, which can sometimes be complicated due to the seeming lack of choices in our food industry. This is especially evident when eating out because it seems few restaurants are aimed at non-meat eaters. However, often patrons who are trying to leave their carnivore ways behind are not aware of vegetarian-friendly restaurants simply because they have never looked for them before.
Well, look no further because Pepper Tree offers only MSG-free, low-carb and low-cholesterol vegan and vegetarian dishes, whether you’re enjoying the buffet line or ordering off the menu. Eggplant with Basil sauce, vegan General Tso’s chicken and Curry Tofu are but a few of the more than 18 entrees available for your next meal, which you can round out with salads, soups and desserts. The restaurant is very clean and the wait staff is courteous and helpful, always looking to make your dining experience a memorable one. Take a look at their menu for yourself and find your new favorite meal.
Pepper Tree Veggie Cuisine has a central location, affordable prices and, most importantly, a wide variety of dishes that are rich not only in flavor but also in nutritional value. Drop by Pepper Tree for a meal worthy of the Buddha himself!
