Govinda’s Vegetarian Lunch

A couple of years ago I wrote about Hare Krishna restaurants over on Lost Vegetarian, citing them as a great resource for vegetarian and vegan travelers. I mentioned in that post that we have one here in Brooklyn, Govinda’s Vegetarian Lunch. It’s only open Monday through Friday, from noon to 3:30pm, so it’s not somewhere I can go regularly. But the few times I’ve been I’ve had a great experiences.

You can pay based on the amount of food you want, or you can splurge and get a full meal (pictured here) with a little bit of everything. My most recent visit was the day after Christmas, and the woman behind the counter warned me that it was basically leftovers. Among the offerings I got a pumpkin-sage lasagna, mac & cheese, rice and beans, paneer in tomato sauce, pakoras, a beet salad with pomegranate, and more.

Due to its very specific hours, the Brooklyn Govinda’s may not be ideal for all travelers. But it’s a boon for vegans and vegetarians working in Downtown Brooklyn.
