Vegan Dining/Travel April 02, 2007 8:29 AM

I posted a list similar to this one on this group about a year ago, but it's now buried in the archives and was in need of updating anyway. So here it is again, revised and updated, because it continues to be a fairly common lament among veg*ns that dining out, especially when traveling, can be a challenge. This list is by no means comprehensive (so if anyone has any good ones I've not listed, please post!), but I have found the following sites to be very helpful many times. I've limited this list to guides that are more detailed, user-friendly and up-to-date. Many of these sites have wonderful resources, links and information beyond their restaurant guides, so you may want to check them out and/or bookmark them even if you never plan to leave home.

Happy trails and bon appétit!

Travelhacker's Top 50 Veg*n Restaurants December 08, 2007 11:56 AM

From Travelhacker, The Top 50 Vegan and Vegetarian Restaurants in the World by Christina Lund (with descriptive notes and links to the restaurants' web sites when applicable).

I found the Travelhacker web site from a recent post on the Travelling Vegan blog, owned by a vegan (what else? ) from Finland named Jari who is "travelling slowly around the world, a few months in every country." He just started the blog in May, beginning in China where he's been for a couple of years. His blog has an emphasis on vegan food, including restaurants, groups and gatherings, as well as photos and accounts of his travel experiences.

This vegan restaurant is being created on-line first, and then will be built to cater to vegans in the area. Interesting concept....

Thanks for the links!

I am pretty peeved at happycow. I think it is quite ridiculous that they will only allow 100% veg resteraunts to be listed now. When I am traveling or dining out it is RARELY with other veg*ns. So, I don't really have a choice in going to non-veg resteraunts when you are the only veggie eater in the group. We need a list of resteraunts to help veg*ns to choose the veg options on the menu. Not to mention that there are ZERO 100% veg resteraunts in the city I live in. So, I am canceling my account with them and switching to vegguide.org

Ok, my rant is over.
