When nature and organic foods meet in the heart of New Mexico!

When I opened Annapurna's® World Vegetarian Cafe in 2002, I made a commitment to serve food as simple as possible from the earth just as nature intended and as prescribed in the Ayurvedic tradition. We are New Mexico's premiere organic plant based restaurant serving an Ayurvedically balanced menu. As a life time vegetarian raised in the Ayurvedic tradition, my creativity combines tradition with local and diverse ingredients serving guests from carnivores to raw food enthusiasts.

Vegetarians have the best diet. They have the lowest rate of coronary disease of any group in the country… Some people scoff at vegetarians, but they have a fraction of our heart attack rate and they have only 40 percent of our cancer rate. They outlive men by about six years now.
- Dr. William Castelli
I think of veganism humbly and holistically. It’s about taking personal responsibility in a world so full of needless suffering. It’s challenging one’s self to open one’s eyes and question society’s assumptions and habits. It’s about critical thinking and compassion and how we would like to see the world evolve.
- Michael Gregor. M.D.
It is significant to note that those who live on vegetarian food are less prone to diseases, whereas non-vegetarians are subject to more diseases. Why? Because animal food is incompatible with the needs of the human body.
- Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Killing animals for sport, for pleasure, for adventure, and for hides and furs is a phenomena which is at once disgusting and distressing. There is no justification in indulging in such acts of brutality.
- The XLV Dalai Lama
Spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.
- Mohandas Gandhi
I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of the whole human being.

Annapurna is the place for a healing cuisine. To accomplish this mission of serving a healing cuisine as prescribed in the Ayurvedic tradition, our restaurants maintain certain principles and philosophies that are very unique in the food industry.

What exactly is this healing cuisine?

Our food is made by hand in our kitchens from fresh produce, locally grown and organic. Our food is FREE of dead animals (eggs, meat, poultry or seafood), cholesterol, saturated fats, trans fats, white sugar, refined sugar, white flour, artificial sweeteners, honey, peanuts, preservatives or pesticides. We use rice bran oil - cholesterol free, trans fat free and non hydrogenated. Fresh herbs and whole spices that are roasted and ground where necessary, flavors our food. Kitchari, the ultimate Ayurvedic food continues to be the popular healing food associated with Annapurna.
