When Sehra Bindal, a vegetarian, started Veg-In YYC four years ago, she set her mind on opening a restaurant featuring vegan and vegetarian cuisine fused with Indian flavours. With previous experience owning restaurants and hotels, Bindal wanted to create a unique dining experience in downtown Calgary for plant-based eaters. The menu offers vegan burgers, samosa chaat, veggito wraps, bowls, flatbreads and chai tea. Her team is involved in community, supporting local events where there is a fit, has won awards in a variety of categories and is often sought out by celebrities visiting Calgary as her walls are adorned with photos of those who have dropped in for a bite. Bindal also seeks out local bakeries who make vegan desserts to offer in her cafe so she can focus on the savoury items.
