Where to Get Your Vegan Food Fix in Bangalore

Navya posted on 14 March

Ten-Second Takeaway

As Bangaloreans become increasingly mindful of what’s served on their plate, healthy eating and veganism are finding more takers. Gone are the days when veganism was dismissed as dull, tasteless, or a passing fad. Many restaurants and cafes are now showcasing fresh and innovative vegan flavours and textures, without compromising on taste. LBB rounds-up restaurants that are celebrating veganism like never before.

The rare restaurant to offer an out-an-out vegan menu, Carrots is a hit with the crowds. You can start off with an Almond Broccoli Soup or a Roasted Tomato one while munching on their Baked Papdi Chaat and their Pesto Grilled Tofu. For mains, there’s the Garlic Cream Pasta {the sauce is made from cashew paste} and the Mushroom Stroganoff. There’s also an Indian menu and you can finish up with their vegan Hot Chocolate.

Housed in a quaint old bungalow, Green Theory’s spread is vegetarian and organic. The Chilled Avocado with Cumin Soup gets your meal off to a brilliant start. Follow it up with the Vegetable Stroganoff or the Thai Curry with Rice. You can’t go wrong with the Three Bean Curry Rice either that comes drenched in a tangy tomato sauce.

Luo Han

An entirely vegetarian Chinese and Thai menu greets you at Luo Han. The restaurant offers flavours that we know and love – the Hot & Sours, the Manchows, the Kung Paos, and the Tom Yums. The Spicy Coconut Vegetable Soup is a good place to start and can team this up with the Dragon Sauce Soya Chunks. For the mains, go with the Chilli Garlic Fried Rice or Schezwan Mei Fun {rice vermicelli}. They do have Soya Ken and Ham versions but do check on availability before stopping by.
