On Monday, a new vegan restaurant opened its doors in San Antonio, Tex., offering cruelty-free Tex-Mex cuisine to the hungry masses. Vegeria is the first vegan restaurant in the city, and its menu offers Southwest-inspired fare like broccoli and queso nachos, sweet corn and pepper salad, and sangria mushrooms served with coconut-cilantro rice. Additionally, the eatery offers vegan and gluten-free catering, wedding cakes, and cooking classes, as well as a monthly art exhibit with 10 percent of profits going to charity. Co-owners Fred Anthony Garza and David Trevino went vegan two years ago to lose weight, but Garza says that that their cruelty-free diet “changed their lives” and sparked a deep interest in activism and animal welfare.
