Favorite place

Best hare krishna food and place forever and ever. One of the older veggie places in the city.

About their lunch: I feel like my mother has turned into a krishna lover. The food is simples but very tasty. The old pink house where they are seems to me a family living room. Recently they've created vegan lunch option.

At the afternoon, Govinda's snack bar is open (the best "cheeseburger" of Porto Alegre). At night, their pizzeria (with delicious vegan options!).

Twice a month at sunday nights, they celebrate in the restaurant with the ISKON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness), music and meditation.

You should go there at night

From thursday up to saturday, it's another part of the family that runs the restaurant during the dinner time. They are totally vegan friendly and have great options for all the pizzas, sandwiches and everything else on their menu. The staff is great and i'm sure i'll have a great time.

Pros: good value, great pizza, XIS de GLUTEM

nice lunch

the little sandwich bar on the side is open during lunch time, while the restaurant next to it opens at night. i am not sure about the exact times. we went to the sandwich bar around 4.30 and left at 6pm coz they closed, just to open the restaurant next door. in the sandwich bar they had gluten/seitan burger small/big and a grain burger which was vegan. they had peas, corn and salad between sandwich and burger with white mayonaise. the mayonaise was a little sweet but nice. they also had a vegan "Beirut" which is something like a big samsosa. they had more different samosas and small pizzas. lots of sweets and cakes for sale but they were not vegan. there are about 4 tables. lots of people came in to buy sweets or stuff to go. the restaurant has good size and the day we were they had pizza night. also vegan pizza. nice people

High quality salad bar, rice, dahl, and a variety of hot dishes. They keep the sugar separate from the fruit juice so you can add your own and dont have to take in more sweet than you want (I love this!)

Pros: fresh food, good quality ingredients, cheap
