Jayanagar is one of those South Bangalore suburbs that’s totally chill if a restaurant is meat-free. And why wouldn’t they, given that the host of vegetarian restaurants serve up quite an interesting fare of vegetarian options that go beyond paneer and steamed veggies. Without keeping you and your hunger waiting, here’s our pick of the best vegetarian restaurants in Jayanagar.
Ragi Momos To Yam Galouti: 5 Best Vegetarian Restaurants In Jayanagar
Enerjuvate Studio & Cafe
Easily our favourite amongst the lot, Enerjuvate’s all-vegetarian menu is a winner with options such as the momo platter and baked sweet potato wedges served with garlicky beetroot hummus. Vegan options are available, with options such as The Crispy Veg Pizza that comes with an amaranth wheat base, and the Momosa Platter. The platter is the health cafe’s take of what happens when you combine samosas with momos. We say it’s a winner. Pair all this with the thirst quenchers such as kombucha and smoothies like The Antioxidant, you’ve got yourself a healthy meal.

It’s the farm-to-fork menu of this restaurant that we are so in love with. Even though their menu is heavily dependent on seasonal and local ingredients, that shouldn’t stop you from trying out dishes such as Aloo Patha Bhindi Chaat and Bisibelebath Fritters. Meat eaters who are familiar with Mutton Galouti, you have to try the Yam Galouti — the vegetarians on our team highly approve of the melt-in-the-mouth galoutis. Healthy breakfast and Jain options are available as well as Kathal Biryani and Millet Pancakes that are getting our thumbs up.

Idli-chutney and mini masala dosas are our favourites at the always crowded darshini of Taaza Thindi. Pair that with a cup of filter coffee, and you’ve got yourself the breakfast of champions. Plus, this super pocket-friendly too with a meal for one costing just under INR 50. Their peak hours are 6 am to 9 am and from 4 pm to 6 pm, so expect a rush then.

Fans of momos should try Paneer Bhurji momos, while Bisi Bele Bath Arancini with Pickle Mayo is a must-try. Jain options are available too and as it comfort food such as pizzas, wraps, burgers, and pasta. Panda’s Pepper from the pizza section is easily our favourite with its toppings that include Banana Pepper and Pepper Cheese.
