No Irish cities make the list, but this is perfect fodder for your wanderlust.

A new report by HappyCow (also featured on Lonely Planet), an online vegan restaurant guide, has revealed the world’s top 10 vegan-friendly cities.

Increased awareness has encouraged more and more people to opt for plant-based alternatives, putting pressure on food establishments to accommodate the change in consumer behaviour.

Stating that the number of vegan restaurants added to the guide has “grown substantially” in the past year, cities were ranked according to four main factors.

London bagged the number one spot for a second year running. Home to over 152 fully vegan restaurants, stalls, bakeries, cafes and smoothie bars citywide.

London was the first city on HappyCow to surpass 100 completely vegan restaurants back in 2017. It also hosts the UK’s first vegan cheese shop La Fauxmagerie. *Adds to London itinerary.

Second on the list was New York City, while Berlin came in at a close third. NYC boasts 111 vegan eateries within a five-mile radius of the city, with special mention going places to such as P.S. Kitchen, Avant Garden and Dun-Well Doughnuts.

Noting that the vegan scene in Berlin “continues to grow and thrive”, the German city was commended for its “world-class vegan döner kebab” at Vöner der Vegetarische Döner.

Los Angeles and Toronto finished out the top five, with LA being described as a “vegan mecca”.

Even a pint of plain is vegan-friendly, so we might have a case yet…
