Kalachandji's touts itself as Dallas' oldest vegetarian restaurant, which may be true, but we're calling it Dallas' best vegetarian restaurant. Tucked into residential East Dallas, this restaurant is located inside of a Hare Krishna temple. The patio is one the best kept secrets in Dallas, and eating there makes the experience somehow magical. Pay the suggested donation for the buffet, which features a rotating selection of predominately vegan dishes and always includes soup, a salad bar, freshly baked bread, a selection of veg and their signature tamarind tea. Following Ayurvedic tradition, no onion or garlic is used, but Kalachandji's doesn't let that stop them from producing incredibly delicious, satisfying food that skips the meat without missing a beat.
