Monsoon is coming to an end in Gujarat with a couple of weeks more left of the wet season and the Shravan month is also at the halfway mark. Then begins the festive season with Janmashtami, Dusherra, Diwali and Christmas festivals slated to come up one after the other. This is also the peak season for restaurants as the weather is conducive to eating out and feasting with friends and family. After the Shravan end, the marriage season begins which again is a great time for restaurants. As is common in Ahmedabad, out of the 5 restaurants we are featuring here for you, 4 of them are vegetarian restaurants because most of the people who regularly eat out are vegetarians and a few of Amdavadis are non-vegetarians. But as far as the restaurant business is concerned, vegetarian restaurants far outnumber the non-vegetarian ones.
