Swarg Ashram is the left bank of the river with the main ashrams in the area and has the old & famous Rishikesh Chotiwala. Even much before the construction of the Ram Jhula bridge tourists and pilgrims used to take the ferry boat across the river and eat the food of Chotiwala.
Another old and famous restaurant here the Swarga Ashram walo ki Mithai ki dukan. Tourists as well as locals of the Rishikesh used to enjoy the sweets and Deshi Ghee Poori Aloo here for many decades, as they sell Poori by weight and Aloo sabzi with it. Locals used take the Pooris to ghats and enjoy with their families & guests. One still take it and enjoy the meal on the near by beaches. They also make Deshi Meethaiya in Deshi Ghee.
Food in Rishikesh – Veg vis- a-vis Non Veg
Being a religious place all the food with in the municipal limits is fully vegetarian. One can not get even eggs all over the town limits. However with modern trends and demands there are many Non Vegetarians restaurants and few bars as well out side the municipal limits of Rishikesh. Mainly they are on Dehradun Road and out side the AIMs.
