Don’t Settle for Medi-Okra

Don’t Settle for Medi-Okra

Travel expert shares best cities to travel to for those trying Veganuary.

Whether you are committed to doing Veganuary, or attempting to incorporate more plants into your diet, one thing to consider is the food choices available when travelling abroad.

Rosie Panter, travel expert at the UK’s trusted travel price comparison site, dealchecker, says:

“While people who opt for a plant-based lifestyle are spoilt for choice in the UK – undoubtedly why 9% of Brits have participated in Veganuary since the campaign began – this is not always the case when travelling. And if you haven’t done your research or made bookings for appropriate restaurants, you might find yourself stuck with nowhere to eat…

“Although adopting a vegan or plant-based lifestyle can take a bit of adjustment at first, it shouldn’t stop you from ticking new destinations off your bucket list – you might even find yourself out of your comfort zone; trying hidden gems and visiting new neighbourhoods that you otherwise wouldn’t have stumbled across. It simply takes a bit of forward planning.”

Read on for Rosie’s top destinations for plant-based foodies…

  • Berlin, Germany

Berlin is a plant-based dream, with vegan options on every street corner. And with most restaurants offering vegan or vegetarian options as standard, you won’t be short of places to try. You could even try doing your own plant-based food tour of the city and see how many different cuisines you can enjoy.

If you’re with a crowd, check out Alaska Bar and have fun over-ordering unique tapas style dishes.

  • Lisbon, Portugal

With hot summers, beautiful tiles and charming neighbourhoods, Lisbon is incredibly affordable and a must-visit for travellers. And while the city is popular for its seafood, it has become much more vegan-friendly over the past few years, even offering vegan food tours.

For your vegan pastry fix head to MOKO Veggie Café and for veganised versions of traditional Portuguese food, try Kong.

  • New York City, USA

From iconic landmarks and major shopping streets to diverse neighbourhoods, New York is one of the most famous cities in the world and boasts pretty impressive vegan food too. Whether you plan on indulging in burgers, pizza, or looking for a restaurant for a celebration, you can spend a whole week here without scratching the surface of what’s on offer.

For vegan soul food, it’s worth trying Cadence where you can enjoy a vegan take on Southern classics, but for a more casual bite with spice visit Usha Foods, in Floral Park, Queens – a plant-based haven.

  • Melbourne, Australia

Offering a vibrant food scene and arguably the best coffee going, vegans won’t struggle for choice in Melbourne as it was selected by HappyCow as one of the top 10 vegan-friendly cities in the world, with 130 fully vegan restaurants to choose from. And with world-class art, green spaces and markets, plant-based travellers can rest assured that they will never go hungry.

If you’re down under and find yourself craving a classic kebab (we’ve all been there), try Kevabs – Australia’s first all-vegan kebab shop. You won’t be disappointed.

  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands

One of the prettiest cities in Europe, the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Amsterdam might not be its food. However, it is an ideal destination for vegan travellers and if you plan on getting around the city by bike, you can end the day dining on hard-earned falafel, Asian street food, or even jackfruit tacos.

For something a little different, The Alchemist Garden is well worth a visit – a raw-food restaurant with an array of dishes made using locally sourced, organic ingredients and all delicious to boot.
