Traveling as a vegan is not always easy. Sometimes you struggle to find places which offer meals without meat. Other times these restaurants are much more expensive or in some countries the waiters don’t understand you when ordering a dish without meat and egg. We found so far that Asia is amazing for the variety of vegan dishes and the prices charged for them. But in other countries we found really good restaurants as well. Here are our top recommendations:
Golden Lotus, Sydney, Australia
The Golden Lotus is by far the most amazing option we found in case you want a dish that replicates meat. Basically every dish you usually find in a Chinese restaurant you can order here in a plant based version. Our highlights were the roasted duck and the vegan prawns.
Evolution Bakery, Kona, Hawaii
The perfect spot to start your day on this beautiful island. Get up and enjoy a nice cup of coffee with one of the nutty flavors at the Evolution Bakery. Delicious are especially the bagel with vegan cream cheese or the banana pancakes.
El Huerto, Santiago, Chile
South America is definitely not the easiest place for vegans. However, especially in Santiago the plant based movement is growing and you can choose between several options. We found El Huerto has the tastiest dishes and it is also located in one of the prettiest streets in the city.
Planta, Toronto, Canada
One of the more expensive options because of its location in downtown Toronto. However, Planta had also one of the best menus we have seen. Our personal highlights were the coconut ceviche, the Frenchie Pizza and the Cheesecake.
Vegan Heaven, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Really close to the Night Bazar the Vegan Heaven is definitely pricier than other local restaurants. But the dishes were absolutely amazing. We had the Sushi, Pad Thai and Massaman Curry and were 100% satisfied with our dishes.
Saturn Cafe, Berkeley, USA
Our favorite burger place so far on the trip. Located next to Berkeley University the Saturn Cafe offers incredible burgers and fries. We tried the California and the Diablo Burger and both were super tasty.
