A few months ago my husband, Paul, stumbled upon PETA’s The Most Veg-Friendly Cities in North America. We’re such plant-based foodies, that we decided that we MUST go to all of these places to dine at the best vegan restaurants around. Here’s the large cities that made the cut:
The Most Veg-Friendly Cities in North America
- Washington, D.C.
- Portland, Oregon
- Albuquerque, New Mexico
- Atlanta, Georgia
- Seattle, Washington
- Vancouver, Canada
- San Francisco, California
- Los Angeles, California
- New York, New York
- Toronto, Canada
Since we live an hour from Los Angeles, this was the first city we crossed off the list. We’ve been making weekend trips there for the past few months and have discovered several fabulous restaurants like LA Vegan Crepes and Café Gratitude.
Next week, however; we’re making a vegan pilgrimage to cities, 5 & 6 Seattle and Vancouver.
We’ll start our tour in Seattle where I’m excited to be having lunch with my blogger buddy Jean. If you don’t know Jean, then you’re missing out. She’s a compassionate vegan and cruelty-free fashionista who somehow manages to write two awesome blogs, Jean of All Trades and Sunshine and Slaughter.
Then we’re driving to Port Townsend and meeting up with my parents to go to my uncle Bob’s 80th birthday party. Port Townsend is a small town that doesn’t appear to be vegan-friendly, so we’ll see how this goes.
Next we’re off to Victoria, where my husband found lots of vegan-friendly restaurants like ReBar Modern Food, a hip lunch and dinner place with gluten-free and vegan options, and raw vegan Café Bliss.
Our next stop is Vancouver where there are so many vegan choices that we’re overwhelmed. One thing I want to do for sure is to have Raw Vegan High Tea at Indigo Café, which I learned about from One Small Vegan.
And so you know, my non-vegan parents will be with us in Port Townsend, Victoria and Vancouver and have agreed to eat at vegan-friendly restaurants with us. This should be interesting!
Finally it’s back to Seattle for one more day before we head home with three cities down and seven to look forward to.
If you have restaurant suggestions for Seattle, Port Townsend, Victoria or Vancouver, I’m all ears!
