Glasgow Named Most Vegan-Friendly City

Who says that haggis has to start with, of all things, a sheep’s stomach? Certainly not The 78, The 13th Note or The Bungo Bar & Kitchen – all of which offer meat-free versions of Scotland’s national dish that must be tasted to be believed. They, along with nearly 20 other vegan, vegetarian and vegetarian-friendly restaurants, have made Glasgow PETA’s pick as the Most Vegan-Friendly City in the UK.

Glasgow

Glaswegians should be proud that their hometown is on the cutting edge of healthy cuisine that is Earth- and animal-friendly. Other standout eateries include Mono, where the fresh home-cooked food is free of all animal products; Cherry and Heather, a small café that’s big on delicious vegan selections; and Saramago Café Bar, an indoor-outdoor café and bar that features Mediterranean dishes complemented with its own breads made with organic flour. At Stereo, the stuffed vine leaves with tahini-and-lemon dressing – along with the homemade breads and cakes – will put a smile on the faces of vegans and non-vegans alike. Glasgow also boasts numerous food stores and services that stress healthy meat-free eating. Even the City Council has gotten in on the act by offering schoolchildren free fresh fruit every day through its Fruit Plus programme.

With so many options available, going vegan is easy in Glasgow. But there’s no excuse for the rest of us, either. A vegan diet is better for our health, the environment and, most importantly, animals. Give it a go! Order our free vegetarian/vegan starter kit right now.

    We’ve been able to buy vegan haggis for the last 15-20 years throughout the UK… Macsween and another brand sell it in some supermarkets – suppliers can be found on their website.. that’s really not new. It would be a surprise that the only restaurants that offer it are vegan ones.. and it’s just depressing that more don’t.. in my experience most people prefer the vegetarian version… #NotJustForVegans.

    The UK needs a decent vegan supermarket that doesn’t rip you off (Holland & Barrett’s Buy one-get-one-free tends to bring their prices down to supermarket prices for many products) … I’m looking forward to Berlin’s Veganz.de ‘s new London branch… they are opening branches in Rome, Budapest, Vienna, Munich…

    It would be nice to have seen the runners up listed in this article…

  10. Very interesting. Wouldn’t have thought that it would necessarily have the largest amount of vegan friendly places to eat – especially when nationality dish is haggis!

  11. That is my city! If you want to take a look at some of our wildlife check out my pics! http://www.flickr.com/photos/bishopbriggsandglasgowildlife/

    Well done Glasgow. Haven’t been on on a visit since a friend (Myrtle Ave Bishops briggs) got married in about 1974, but thinking of doing so now. BRILLIANT.

    This is one of the many reasons i love my home town of Glasgow. 13th Note, Stereo, Mono, The 78, The Flying Duck, Saramago Cafe, Heavenly (sadly closed), and a host of other veggie pubs and restaurants make glasgow a great place to eat out. Sadly, local supermarkets still don’t cater very well for the lazy vegans amongst us, so we are forced to cook from scratch – thank the B’Jesus for Roots and Fruits and grassroots takeaways!
