Vegetarians are taking over the world
Considered the most veggie-friendly city in the world in 2014 by the animal rights organisation PETA, it has over 140 vegetarian or vegan restaurants, and even has a state school with a veggie menu. Dirt Candy, the restaurant owned by chef Amanda Cohen, represents the evolution of the New York vegetarian trend. Make a reservation in advance if you want to eat there, because there are only nine tables available. New York also has its own Vegetarian Food Festival, which will be held on 7th and 8th May 2016.
Vegans don’t just eat lettuce
Veganism is not a synonym for boredom. Veganista Ice Cream, in Vienna, lays these myths to rest with its incredible 100% vegan ice cream, which is fresh, artisan and delicious. Creamy ice creams made with oat milk, rice milk and soy milk.
The German capital boasts the first chain of vegan supermarkets in Europe: Veganz. This is a way of democratising organic and ecological produce, which are seen as almost a luxury. The restaurant Yellow Sunshine Burger offers a fun vegan twist on the famous Berlin “currywurst” (German sausage topped with curry sauce). According to the German Vegetarian Union, Germany now has seven million vegetarians and one and a half million vegans. These are figures that demonstrate the blossoming of all kinds of businesses based on respect for animals, such as the vegan accessory shop Avesu.
