Satisfying eats at Señor Veggie

Loaded veggie tacos won’t leave you hungry for more

A genuine hit at dinner came via my dining partner’s SV Burger—featuring a house-made black bean patty topped with guacamole and that seemingly crack-laced chipotle mayo. A fresh bun and equally bright fixin’s helped seal the deal on this satisfying must-have item. I’m normally a fan of shoestring spuds, but while the Señor fries are easy on the eyes, they’re difficult to eat—too crunchy to harpoon with a fork, too curly and thin to try wrangling one from the thicket of fries.

My choice for the night was the fidueá, which is quite similar to paella, but uses vermicelli noodles in place of rice. Laced with smoked paprika, the dish combined whole Kalamata olives and thinly sliced sautéed red peppers for a hearty and briny blend. Note: It tastes even better days later with added chicken (sorry, vegans).

Yes, Señor Veggie is stretching its legs from its early beginnings, but damn if they’re not making it appealing to chow down on vegan fare without loading up on overly processed patties. The eatery’s biggest success is how it’s introducing new ingredients and unfamiliar dishes with relative ease. If the packed house during First Friday is to be believed, San Anto’s ready for more.
