While we already knew our town was cooking up some top-notch vegan spots, we have been recognized formally as one of the top 10 vegan-friendly cities in the U.S. by PETA.
With restaurants like Kindred, Cafe Gratitude and Civico 1845 making it easy (and supremely delicious) to eat vegan around town, it's no wonder we came in at number six on this year's top 10 list.
"Whether you're looking for lasagne romagnola made with seitan or a soy chorizo quesadilla packed with melty dairy-free cheese, San Diego has the restaurant for you," said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in a press release. "San Diego is making a triumphant debut on PETA's list thanks to vibrant and delicious cuisine that's kind to animals, the environment, and diners' health alike."
We just launched a new series dubbed Meatless Monday, featuring one awesome vegetarian dish at a local restaurant.
Check out this week's veggie burger from Carnitas Snack Shack.
