The seitan tacos at this Greenville favorite are possibly the tastiest meatless tacos available in a Dallas bar. A generous serving of tempura-battered seitan (a high-protein wheat gluten meat substitute) is stuffed into a corn tortilla and topped with tangy shredded cabbage, fresh cilantro and spicy Sriracha ginger ailoi. One bite of these crunchy, flavorful tacos is bound to make you forget this fulfilling dish is meat-free.
