city, has so much to offer, from art to history to culture. The city’s vegan food scene
is also rich and diverse. If you’re looking for junk food, raw food, smoothies, donuts, or snacks,
Berlin has you covered. Try vegan banana and peanut
donuts at Brammibal’s in Kreuzberg if you’re
after something sweet, or if you’re in the mood for a burger, stop at Reger Burger food truck. The truck, which offers vegan fast-food, tours Berlin’s trendiest areas,
including the Green Market. If you would prefer to cook for yourself, Berlin is also brimming
with organic supermarkets where you can buy whole food produce. Number two, Krakow, Poland. Krakow is a charming medieval
city in the South of Poland. As well as museums, history,
culture, and affordable bars, Krakow is teaming with
vegan-friendly cafes, restaurants, and fast-food joints. According to veggie
travel guide Happy Cow, the city is home to over 100 restaurants that either offer vegan options
or are entirely plant-based. Try vegan pastrami at Krowarzywa, a small Polish vegan burger chain, or if you prefer something
more natural and healthy, Veganic’s menu is vegetable-centric. The vegetarian restaurant
focuses on creating dishes with intense and original
flavors from plant products. Number three, New York City, US. With more than 500
vegan-friendly restaurants to choose from, New York is one of the most vegan-friendly
cities in the world. From Thai to Japanese to
Italian, plant-based travelers in the Big Apple are spoiled with choices. If you want something a little high-end, celebrity chef Matthew Kenney has a number of vegan restaurants across New York City, including Plant Food and
Wine, Sentio, and Bar Verde. – It’s critically important, I think, to really show that
plants are like the top when it comes to food. But also, you know, it’s
just an art experience. I mean, you want to feel
like you’re painting or sculpting or drawing. – [Narrator] Vegan
restaurateur Ravi De Rossi also owns a string a
restaurants and cocktail bars, including high-end Avant
Garden in the East Village. For Soul Food, try Seasoned Vegan and for Japanese-style food
look out for Beyond Sushi, a plant-based sushi chain. If you’re self-catering,
many supermarkets, like Lifethyme, Whole
Foods, and Trader Joe’s, are brimming with vegan food. Number four, Los Angeles, US. Los Angeles is arguably
one of the easiest places on the planet to eat vegan. Among a plethora of
plant-based restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, and
independent grocery stores, the heart of SoCal even
has its own vegan milkman, a Jewish delicatessen that
makes pastrami out of mushrooms, and an In-n-Out style vegan burger joint. Every year it also plays
host to Eat Drink Vegan, a vegan festival that’s like a plant-based
foodie version of Coachella. For pizza, try Cruzer Pizza and Pasta. The restaurant serves a
variety of creative recipes, using different vegan meats and cheeses. Or try vegan pizza favorite, Mohawk Bend in the hip
Echo Park neighborhood. There is also Little Pine,
a vegan restaurant owned by musician and animal
rights activist Moby, and Crossroads Kitchen,
an upmarket vegan eatery offering wine, cocktails, and fine food. Number five, Hong Kong. Hong Kong is on many bucket lists. It’s home to towering skyscrapers, vibrant night markets,
scenic hiking trails, and lots and lots of vegan food. The city’s growing scene is
largely thanks to Green Monday. The movement, similar to Meatless Mondays, was founded by David Yeung. It has helped to spread the word about the benefits of eating vegan food by working with restaurants to add more plant-based
products to their menus. Green Monday also has its own
grocery store and restaurant, called Green Common, which
serves dishes like pho soup and breakfast scramble made
with the JUST vegan egg. – It’s about providing real
solution to empower people with healthy and sustainable choices. – [Narrator] For comfort
food try POP vegan, for Buddhist vegetarian
cuisine try Pure Veggie House, and for Cantonese try Bijas Vegetarian. Number six, Mumbai, India. Mumbai is vibrant, busy,
and rich in history. It’s also ideal for vegan travelers. Many traditional Indian dishes
are already vegan-friendly, because a large portion of the Indian population is vegetarian. Dahl dishes are usually plant-based, as is vegetable biryani, and sides such as samosas and pakoras. If you want to go somewhere
exclusively vegan, Earth Cafe serves westernized
plant-based dishes, as does Earthling’s Cafe and Rare Earth. For traditional Indian food, there’s Aharveda at the
Hotel Golden Chariot. – All food here is vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, and oil-free. – [Narrator] Number seven,

dishes, try Goodsouls Kitchen. For a mix of western and Thai food, including vegan fishcakes, pad Thai, and stuffed cucumber rolls,

vegan-friendly restaurants in Amsterdam. Number nine, London, UK. Apart from the museums, bridges,
and quirky vintage markets, and places of historical significance, the best thing London
has to offer may just be its diverse range of vegan food. You can get a vegan version of pretty much anything you
desire in the UK’s capital, from Indian at City Spice on Brick Lane, to kebabs at What the Pitta, to cheesy, meaty, pizzas at Purezza. Vegan fried chicken is also on offer at Camden’s Temple of Seitan, and plant-based fast casual
chain By Chloe has two spots in the city, in Covent
Garden and Tower Bridge. Number 10, Bristol, UK. Located in the southwest
of the United Kingdom, Bristol has a vegan scene to rival any capital
city around the world. Chef’s Pencil even labeled it
as the number one destination for plant-based food in the world, edging out major European
capitals like Berlin and London. The popular destination is even home to vegan vending machines. Earlier this year, Vegan Vend
launched Violet and Daisy, two purely plant-based vending machines, in the Galleries shopping center and studio complex the Island. Bristol is home to around

enjoy meat-free offerings from Homegrown Smoker,
and those with a craving for ice-cream can visit Little Chkpea. Number 12, Turin, Italy. Nestled in the Italian Alps, just under a two-hour drive
from Italy’s fashion capital of Milan, is the city of Turin. It’s grand, it’s picturesque, and it’s extremely vegan-friendly. In fact, it’s most known to some as Italy’s first vegetarian city, thanks to its mayor Chiara Appendino. Back in 2016, Appendino
proposed a weekly meat-free day, as well as animal welfare
lessons in schools. For healthy fast food, try Flower Burger, an Italian vegan burger
chain with locations in Turin as well as Rome and Monza. If you’re feeling adventurous,

Peruvian, Costa Rican, and cuisines like Japanese and
Italian, try Arbol De Seda. It’s a vegetarian restaurant, so make sure you ask for
your dish without dairy. Number 18, Nairobi, Kenya. Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, has plenty to offer a vegan traveler. From elephant orphanages
to giraffe hotels, life in and just outside
the city has plenty of opportunities to see animals
in their natural habitat. – [Man] What I normally think about this work is like a mission. We have to rescue the
babies and help them grow and to see them go back into the wild. – [Narrator] It’s also relatively easy to eat vegan food in the city. For Kenyan cuisine, try Jagannath Restaurant on Kipande Road. If you’re in the mood for Indian food, there are a number of
vegan-friendly restaurants in the city, including
Ashiana Vegetarian Restaurant and Chowpaty Pure Vegetarian Restaurant. Number 19, Denpasar, Bali. If you’re flying off to Bali, it’s likely you’ll land near

boutiques, and the Bali Museum. For Indonesian vegan food,

  • Avoid Norway. The last time I was there, I only found one vegan restaurant in the entire country (in Stavanger). And that was exorbitant, as one would expect for Norway.

  • thanks for videos livekindly but encouraging people to go to countrys is just adding to the problem of polluting the earth

  • Why would I eat vegetables only, in these places. You will just miss out on their culture and good food, for the same plant meals you can get anywhere? That is like traveling from america to another country and only earing at McDonald s, wendys, kfc, ect..

  • Please don't jet off on an adventure; the GHG emissions from air travel are enormous – a couple of transcontinental flights in a year will undo your GHG emissions savings from going vegan.

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  • I am surprised to discover you can clog up your arteries so easily on vegan food around the world. Beware! Just because it’s vegan it’s not necessarily healthy.

  • Great video! I would love to travel to some of these destinations. Being vegan is great whether you eat in or eat out!

  • Great Video,showing if you travel there are options for vegan food.I don!t recall which city. But with vegetarian, there are animal products in them.You have to ask to take out them.Also with a lot of take out food,there is to much Sodium,another thing to watch for if it matters.Healthy eating,and Happy Holiday to you all.🍎🎋🌍✌

  • Where is Mexico City ? Mexico per se it’s just super vegan friendly , We have over 100 vegetarian and vegan restaurants, plus our land is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole foods, cereals etc. Please come to try delicious Mexican vegan food ❤️❤️👍🥗🥗🥗🌿🌿

  • I'm just going to say: in case you come to Lima, Peru, you'll also find a lot of vegan restaurants, specially in Miraflores, Barranco and Centro de Lima (3 main districts in the capital) ✌🏼

  • travel less, stay at home and open a vegan restaurant or do vegan activism

    but when you are in vienna visit me on my store > Superfood Deli 3

    Vienna is the vegan hot spot in the middle of europe

  • wow how could you not include the vegan capital of europe?! > VIENNA

    worlds most livable city 10 times in a row!!!

    almost EVERY restaurant offers vegan options, first vegan Superfood Café chain with 3 stores, first vegan burger chain with 6 stores, another vegan burger chain with 3 stores, vegan bakery, raw vegan bakery, first vegan ice cream chain with 9!! stores, vegan cheeze store, first all vegan organic supermarket, biggest all vegan restaurant, so many reasons to nams vienna on number 1 and you didn't even include it … come on

  • I live in Berlin, but I hardly eat out since I eat whole foods. The vegan food scene is very fast food ish here – which is of course a good thing for various reasons, but not if you don't eat oil, added sugar or added salt. It's still nice to see a lot of likeminded people in the general population. You can see people with vegan slogans on their clothes etc fairly often as well stumble upon an anonymous for the voiceless event (or similar) without even planning to. Rock on, Berlin!

  • Mohawk Bend in Los Angeles watch out for them. They gave me a real pork pulled sandwich even after I stressed that everything must be with vegan.

  • advocating for SBD/space between diet: vegan diet for human digestion : hopefully Government can be Scientifically Studying what optimal diet within Veganism is: ( as well for understanding what specific vegan diets animals eat )/ (what materials have the most scientific integrity for all processes/all systems: specifically):
    my best understanding of what optimal diet for humans is, is:
    Space Between Diet
    certified organic
    no wheat products
    no soy products
    no peanut products
    no coffee bean products
    vegan (plant-based) foods diet

  • Agree with most, but I have found it very hard to find vegan places in Cape Town, Kyoto and Turin. Although it has been a couple of years I visited the first two. Nonetheless there are many cities that definitely provide more vegan options, Tel Aviv being maybe the most vegan friendly in the world for instance.

  • How about Vietnam? They have a strong vegan local culture. They call vegan/vegetarian food "chay", which are almost always vegan. Since most Asians are lactose intolerant, and so dairy is not a tradition. Very rarely chay has eggs. You just have to ask.

  • Why do vegans always try to replicate animal foods in their diet , when they state how awful and cruel it is to eat animals? The fact is their starving bodies are craving animal foods and the nutrients they can only get from animal products. Veganism is a cult based on misinformation. It is heavily promoted by the multi billion dollar businesses of big Agra. . They aren't concerned with the damage that having a vegan diet does to humans. Their only consideration is profit.




  • Melbourne?? Sydney has a LOT more vegan options than Melbourne now!!! Just check Happy Cow. As well as Lord of the Fries, we also have Soul Burger, and loads of other options.

  • I think Lisbon, Portugal really belongs on this list. It has a lot of new vegan places. I'm eager to try out Turin and London. Excited to see what they have.

  • 😍 Very Very Beautiful Information ! Thank You so much, Everybody !!😍

  • Cruiser Pizza in LA has a good PR machine but a TERRIBLE CRUST. it’s one of those cardboard perforated baked on a screen types. Want the best Pizza in LA? Go to Double Zero in Venice.

  • Planning my honeymoon and I have been worried about finding good vegan food in some of the places we are considering. Gonna show this to my fiancé and tell him to pick one :))

  • Guyss I don’t know about the other cities mentioned(I believe they’re accurate), but for Turin(I live here as a vegan) I was so shocked to see it here because yes there are a couple vegan places but it’s definetely not vegan friendly at all, most of the people don’t even know what a vegan is! The only vegan foods you can get at a regular restaurant are marinara pizza and tomato sauce pasta..
