Hidden Vegetarian?

I'm not a vegetarian, but my domestic partner is. Very strict, no fish etc, but cheese and egg are OK so far. He also thinks food is whatever fills the it has been up to me to fine the great vegetarian delights.
I know about Veggie Heaven, Casa de Luz, Mr Natural, and West Lynn; but my joy is to find great vegetarian in carnavore venues.

Here is my favorite: Twin Dragon (Vietnamese on Lamar N. of Rundberg). Their Tofu Hot and Sour Soup is the best H&S soup ever. Their vegie spring rolls are the best in Austin. They have an extensive Vietnamese and Chinese veggie section, and they will also create any of their dishes with tofu instead of meat.

Star of India on Anderson has a nightly dinner buffet that has enough vegetarian to satisfy him and good carnavore dishes, too.
Taj Palace has a Tuesday night buffet that is exclusively vegetarian, and very good.
Java Noodle on Oltorf is a treat.
Eastside will still prepare a 3- or 4-veggie plate if you ask for it, even though they dropped it from the menu.
Curras north has a very satisfying veggie chile relleno. West Lynn's chile relleno is still the best in town, veggie or otherwise.

Anyone know of any other hidden veggie treats?
