Best places to visit for amazing vegetarian and vegan food

Vegetarians and vegans are find it a  challenge when  eating out whilst on holiday.   I know I got fed up of eating the same chips and salad over and over again whilst I was travelling in the 70’s.  Over the years we have realised that researching about vegetarian and vegan food, on the internet (or using a guidebook), before travelling makes it so much easier.  Thankfully, nowadays,  there are many places that offer amazing vegetarian/vegan dishes!    People following a vegan/vegetarian diet shouldn’t have to forgo tasty food while on holiday.  With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the my top vegetarian-friendly destinations we have got to know from our travels around the world.

  1. New Delhi, India

India is a food heaven for vegetarians and vegans.  Whether it is restaurant food or street food, you are sure to find the most delicious food there.  Each Region has its speciality.  Delhi, the capital of the country is also known to be the food capital of India for food lovers. They have some of the best street food in India .  Delhi is  famous for its  Chaats and Chhole Bhature and of course the amazing Punjabi food.  Every time, we have visited Delhi, we have have had the most wonderful vegetarian and meals.  Often the meals are cooked fresh in front of you. If you are visiting India for the first time, my recommendation would be to eat food in restaurants which have been recommended for you.

Veganism  is also being embraced  everywhere and New Delhi is no different.  Most places will have vegan options on their menu.  This list has over 70  several  vegetarian and vegan restaurants in New Delhi. Cafes like Rose and Greenr listed here  are the go-to vegan places, and Nut and Bowls cafe is the latest entrant. But what’s even more interesting, is how cafes across Delhi are waking up to this culture and including vegan options in their menus.

2.  Paris, France

Even though Paris is known for its amazing steak frites and cheese boards, there are also many vegetarian restaurants you can enjoy!  Vegan and vegetarian cuisine is the hot new culinary trend in Paris and plant-based restaurants are popping up all over to cater for eco and health-conscious diners. The 11 best vegan & vegetarian restaurants in Paris are listed here.

Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just searching for great  dining options, it’s nice to have personal recommendations. That’s why I always check which restaurants are included in Happy Cow List.  This list  features the 10 best vegan restaurants in Paris, as determined by the highest scores calculated from their  community member reviews.


3.  Las Vegas, Nevada

If you’re planning a vacation to the US, then be sure to visit Las Vegas! The city does have many options for vegetarians and vegans with its high demand for organic foods. This is the list of  the 10 best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Las vegas. VegeNation is a community-based restaurant on a mission to lead a food revolution and  cook with 100% plant-based ingredients.  Our favourite is Violette’s Vegan Organic Eatery.   Their extensive menu offers a wide variety of items to tempt every palate and they also specialise in healthy juices and smoothies,

Of course, there’s no doubt that Las Vegas is not for everyone. Some people really aren’t into gambling it’s associated with, while many people prefer using the best rated USA online casino or games rooms they can find on the web. If you’re a first-timer to Las Vegas and a first-time gambler,  don’t be nervous – just ask the croupiers to explain the game. 

4.  London, England

London. has a lot to offer when it comes to vegan/vegetarian holidays, with more and more Londoners switching to a plant-based lifestyle.   The city has a huge list of vegan restaurants, as well as street food in markets such as the Camden Market and Borough Market.

If  you are looking for a fancy restaurant then choose  the Oxo Tower Restaurant in Southwark.   This restaurant is on the eighth floor of the  OXO Tower on London’s South Bank and the views of the London Skyline from this restaurant are spectacular.  This  restaurant always has lots of vegan options on the menu and here is my  review for this restaurant.

5.  Edinburgh, Scotland

If you find yourself in Edinburgh and want to try some great vegetarian food, you are in for a treat.  A  recent survey placed Edinburgh second in a list of the most vegan populated areas in the UK (Glasgow came first), so you won’t be surprised to learn that the capital has plenty of vegetarian and vegan restaurants.

To help you make the most of this vegan food celebration, listed here are some of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Edinburgh.  Our favourite is Kalpna. Check out their  lunchtime deals of thalis and buffet as well as their varieties of different Indian street food like Pakoras and Sev Dahi Puri
