With Virat Kohli joining the vegan bandwagon, there is definitely going to be a rise in the demand for more vegan meals. Restaurants all over have started including variety of options on their menus already, and here is the list of the top ones from India! By Japleen Kaur

1. Carrots, Bangalore

The post has to start with the first-ever vegan restaurant in India, Carrots. Started four years ago, they’re the first ones to make vegan cool. Quite naturally, their freshly baked carrot cake is to die for. Dessert that’s healthy? Yes, please! They also organise workshops, events, talks that even included a Vegan Donut Festival!
