Dining in Rishikesh
Nothing complements adventure better than good food. And Rishikesh offers some awesome food choices to satisfy those taste buds. Fresh, local veggies sprinkled with traditional spices and made with love – the food in Rishikesh will sure make your mouth water. From gourmet food, to sumptuous family lunches, to quick bites on the go – the food experience lives up to the adventure-spiritual reputation of Rishikesh.
Given the religious significance of the place, only vegetarian food and non-alcoholic drinks are served. But that doesn’t diminish the taste or the choices available to relish. Several multi-cuisine restaurants in Rishikesh offer various kinds of delicious local (Garhwali), continental, and European food. However, the main dining attraction here is the Sattvic food, which is available in almost all restaurants and is prepared in the traditional manner, with fresh vegetables, herbs and organic ingredients grown locally. Sattvic diet is extremely popular with yogis, who also refer to it as yogic diet. However, tourists too relish the simplicity and richness of this food.
The Lakshman and Rama Jhula areas are the dining hubs of Rishikesh. Most restaurants and cafés are at the bank of river Ganga, and offer delicious and healthy food. There are indoor as well as outdoor cafés that offer a nice view of the surroundings and enhance the dining experience.
