1 Jyoti Bihanga Vegetarian Restaurant

Even if you cannot pronounce the name on your first six visits, Jyoti is a great place to head if you're looking for vegetarian or vegan dishes. Owned by spiritual master, Sri Chinmoy, this Normal Heights venue is based on the idea that everyone coming in, working at, or contributing to Jyoti Bihanga is adding to the spirituality of the restaurant. This isn't just an experience in great vegetarian cuisine, it's also a bit of a spiritual journey. Grab a Neatloaf sandwich and indulge in some other-worldly talk with fellow patrons.
