Discovering new food while you’re abroad is all part of the fun of travelling. But it can be difficult if you’re vegetarian or vegan. Finding local places that cater to your requirements can mean the difference between a brilliant break and a week of eating salad.
This is where the website HappyCow.net could come to your rescue.
It was founded in 1999 by vegetarians and vegans who struggled to find places to eat while away from home,
HappyCow lists thousands of places for non-meat eaters to dine around the world – from Fiji to Florida – all reviewed by site supporters.
It gives details on the type of food offered, including whether it’s organic, suitable for vegans. And it lists ‘vegetarian-friendly’ restaurants that will omit animal products from some items on the menu to make them suitable.
There are also vegetarian and vegan friendly B&Bs as well as local stores that sell food for self-catering travellers.
Finally, there’s even an app that you can download to your phone to make finding a suitable restaurant or café easy while you’re on the move.
