When you are a vegetarian in a restaurant, finding something that both fits your lifestyle choice and is not just a salad can be challenging. Thankfully, vegetarianism is becoming more accepted and even catered to by eateries. Try these dining establishments the next time you want a night out.

The Himalayan

If you like spicy food, Indian is not your only vegetarian haven. The Himalayan serves Nepali dishes that can range from mild to mouth-scorchingly hot. They are not exclusively vegetarian, but many of their dishes are meatless. Order the Dal Bhat plate, which starts with a lentil soup and comes with rice, creamy spinach, and cottage cheese with a cashew tomato sauce. It comes with an amazing mango rice pudding for dessert.

Buddha's Veggie Restaurant

Buddha's Veggie Restaurant's name says it all. Even though they have switched from purely vegetarian to serving some meat dishes, they are still very careful in cooking. They have separate fryers and cook stations for meat dishes, so you can be assured that you won't be getting any trace of meat in your food. Even though the vegetarian menu may have meat names, they are completely vegetarian.

Buffet-style in a Vegetarian Friendly Market

The Sunflower Café is nestled inside of the Community Natural Foods Store. You will find something that you like with daily hot food specials, a smoothie bar, an extensive salad bar and a burrito section. There are also usually hot soups, curries and grain salads. Try the curries; you won't be disappointed with the flavours.

Just because you are vegetarian does not mean you have to be relegated to picking at lettuce when you go out to eat. Celebrate your choices and visit one of these restaurants today. You will be happy dining at any of these delicious establishments.
