London gets the tag of the most vegan-city in the world for the second consecutive year, according to an online restaurant guide.
The U.K. capital came top for a second year, in the rankings put together by HappyCow, which claims to be the largest vegan and vegetarian restaurant guide in the world, looking at options in more than 180 countries.
According to Google Trends, people’s interest in veganism has increased five times in the last five years between 2014 and 2019 in the United Kingdom. HappyCow claimed as the largest vegan and vegetarian restaurant guide in the world states that London is the first city on its list to reach 100 vegan-friendly restaurants in 2017.
“Veganism continues to become a mainstream lifestyle in London, and this city takes veganism to a new level,” HappyCow said in its survey.
New York came second on the list, with 111 restaurants in a five-mile radius of the city.
Bangkok, Thailand was the only city to be added to the rankings this year, coming in eighth. HappyCow counted 74 vegan restaurants in the city. Spector said that most restaurants have ”solid vegan options” on the menu thanks to Bangkok’s ”predominantly Buddhist background.”
