Toyota Center Vegan Options 2023 (Houston Rockets)

Houston Rockets Vegan

We’ve tried contacting someone at Toyota Center where the Houston Rockets play several times to find out what vegan options are available at the arena. Unfortunately, we’ve not been able to get any responses as of yet.

However, we have done some research on what policies you need to know if you’re thinking of bringing your own food into Toyota Center as well as a couple vegan-friendly spot close by worth checking out.

We wanted to share that information so we’re putting out this ‘guide’ even though we don’t yet have the thing we, and you, really want which is what is available inside the arena.

If you’d like to help encourage Toyota Center to get in contact with us, you can reach them at

Can I Bring Food Into Toyota Center?

Sometimes life seems easier just bringing your own food to an event. If you’re thinking of doing that at the Toyota Center, here are a few policies of the arena that you’ll want to be aware of. These were taken directly from Toyota Center’s A to Z Guide.

Bag Policy (as of 9/27/21)

Bags must not exceed 5.5 X 8.5 inches for fans entering the arena. There is a strict “no bag policy” for all other bags to help improve the touchless fan environment. Bag lockers will be available on a rental basis for fans that need them.

Outside Food and Beverage (as of 9/27/21)

Guests are not permitted to bring any food or beverages into Toyota Center. Containers such as bottles, cans, thermos bottles, or plastic coolers are not permitted for the safety and protection of our guests.

Vegan Options Near Toyota Center

Grabbing a bite to eat before or after the game with friends and family can be one of the best parts of the entire game. We took a look at what’s close to the arena to give you a couple recommendations of some vegan-friendly spots you can check out.

This is by no means all the options, just a couple places that caught our eye.

Green Seed Vegan

4320 Almeda Rd, Houston, TX 77004

Green Seed Vegan is located less than two miles south of the arena. Not exactly walking distance, but it’s a quick drive from the park.

They offer sandwiches, smoothies and juices and while we’ve never ate their ourselves personally, they have tremendous reviews. People seem to rave about their sweet potato fries.

The Doshi House

3419 Emancipation Ave, Houston, TX 77004

The Doshi House is also located about a mile and a half from the arena, just a few blocks away from Green Seed. (There are actually a handful of vegan spots around this same area)

They are a vegan and vegetarian place so be aware of that when ordering. Again, we’ve not ate here ourselves, but their reviews are outstanding. The paninis get a lot of love in their reviews so something worth considering for sure.
