      The Triangle Vegetarian Society would be a good starting point to learn about vegetarian dining options as well as meeting other vegetarians:


      I have been reading about their Thanksgiving buffet for years and one day I will make the five hour drive to attend. The tickets for this event sell out well in advance. The website says more info will be available in October.

      The triangle is a large place. (At least it is after you have been here a while and decide that driving more than 15-20 min is just too far. :-) ) What is the area of town you are looking for?

        I'm a vegetarian/vegan (Chapel Hill) I'd definitely suggest Remedy Diner to you, I'm keen to go there. There are great Indian veg restaurants in nearby Morrisville & Cary. Trader Joes has an extensive selection. I mainly know my area but am glad to help you. With all the farmer's markets & restaurants it's a great area to be veg; gourmet veg!

          Regarding vegetarian Indian restaurants, I really liked Udipi when I've been there (if its still around?).

            Still around, but not quite as good as it used to be. If you haven't yet, give Sai Krisha Bhavan in Morrisville a try.

              I LOVE Udipi!
              I think you'll find that most places in Raleigh have veggie-fare. Even 'The Pit' has BBQ tofu that is to die for!

          We were there last week and ate at a great local chain called Jasmin Mediterannean. They're not strictly veg, but they have a lot of eggplant, bean and rice dishes. They were a bit slow, but they seemed to make everything by hand, so it was worth the wait. Really great flavors - the tabbouleh was outstanding and my bf's zaki (flatbread quesadilla-like thing) was super yummy.
