Vegans Are Changing Restaurant Menus Around the World

It’s World Vegan Day! This year, the number of people who call themselves vegans tripled, and more than half of Americans say they’re trying to eat less meat. 51% of chefs celebrated all this plant-based bliss early by adding vegan items to their menus, bringing 13% more business to those chefs willing to take the plant-based plunge.

According to a recent report on food tourism, Los Angeles and Berlin are some of the most vegan-friendly cities in the world. Yes, there are vegan restaurants everywhere (Excited?! I know) but what sets many restaurants apart is their ability to provide vegan substitutes for traditional dishes.
