Online vegan restaurant guide HappyCow has released a list of the top 10 most vegan-friendly cities in the world.

HappyCow used three criteria to compile its list – its overall impression of a city’s vegan-friendliness, the number of vegan restaurants within the most vegan restaurant-dense five-mile radius of the city, and the number of restaurants offering veggie and vegan food within this area.

Topping the list is London – which is home to 152 vegan restaurants – followed by New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, and Toronto among others.

‘Mainstream lifestyle’

“Over the past year, the number of vegan restaurants added to HappyCow has grown substantially, and the interest in veganism continues to grow exponentially,” said the organization.

“10 years ago on HappyCow, around this time of year, there were 625 fully vegan restaurants listed on HappyCow. Today, there are over 8100 vegan restaurants listed on our resource, with many more vegetarian and other veg food listings on the site. 

“While the number of vegan options worldwide is skyrocketing, in some cities the overall number of pure vegan restaurants has plateaued due to the increased availability of veg-options. Vegan restaurants often need every customer they can get to stay afloat.”
