Restaurants in the Raleigh/Durham area

Welcome to the Triangle area!!  The following list was prepared by the
Triangle Vegetarian Society.  Each restaurant may not be purely vegetarian,
but offers some
vegetarian fare, with at least one vegan main course option. I would suggest
that you visit check out the restaurant reviews on their web page at
http://www.trinet.com/tonc/tvsreviews.html and no, I'm not a member - just an
admirer of their work.  They reviewed the following restaurants in the

Suman's Indian Take-out

One other suggestion:  The triangle has three locations of Wellspring
Grocery.  This is a great health food grocery store with a great
deli/restaurant.  Generally, these deli's list all ingredients, and mark
items as vegan or low-fat.  In Raleigh, Wellspring is at the at 3540 Wade
Avenue (828-5805) just inside the beltline.  In Durham, it is on Broad Street
just north of the Durham Freeway (147).  The other one is in Chapel Hill.

If you need to entertain carnivores, I would suggest Golden Corral.  I often
lunch there.  They have a buffet that has a wide selection of fruits, fresh
salad items, cooked vegetables, steamed vegetables, and a baked potato bar -
all for about $5.50.  Trust me - since I''m a McDougall style low-fat/massive
quantities type eater, I make it worth every penny!

Good luck!  Drop me a line at the office at jeley@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx if you need
directions or further information once you get here.  (Yahoo yellow pages
will give you directions from wherever you are in the triangle to whatever
restaurant you want.
