I go here about monthly, highly recommend the chile relleno with sour cream sauce and don't say no to the raisins and pecans on top, I know it sounds weird to put that on top of a chile relleno but OMG it gives it a great balanced taste! Comes with rice and beans.

The best kept secret... Vegetarian AND VEGAN FRIENDLY restaurant. This place has been around for years, probably couple of decades. It has consistently grown to be the best vegetarian restaurant in town. Their food is OMG! I recommend lasagna night and bbq tofu night, but really every night they have a wonderful spread. The day's menu for both lunch and dinner is on their website: kalachandjis.com Every day of the week is different menu. Before going check their website because they close on certain days and between lunch and dinner. It is buffet style, but you can take to go as well. For dinner they include dessert. Best tamarind tea around!
