PETA Names London Most Vegetarian-Friendly City

England may throw away a staggering $20 billion in food a year, but the country has found a way to redeem itself. Its capital, London, has been declared the most vegetarian-friendly city in the world. The pronouncement came from animal-rights organization PETA, which said the city beat out Los Angeles, New York, Melbourne, and Mumbai for the number one spot.

"We chose London after considering not only the city's numerous vegetarian restaurants but also the massive variety of meatless ethnic cuisine and the fact that grocery stores and even steak houses in the city promote the mushrooming number of vegan options by indicating them with a green 'V' on menus and labels," the campaign group said in an announcement.

Which city do you think has the most veggie-friendly cuisine?

It really is London- I've never had any problems eating out with friends, whatever their food related needs, from vegeterian, vegan, halal, kosher intolerance, allergy, etc we can almost always eat in the same place, whether high end or the pub or some cheap diggs, without any problem. And it's the same at supermarkets, the choice of foods is ever increasing, so you can get halal/kosher meat at Sainsbury's in some areas.

I was just in London with my mother, and although neither of us are vegetarians usually, all the restaurants we visited had a lot of veggie options on the menu- some of which we ended up ordering. They just sounded more interesting than the options with meat (which we could get any day at home). I also notice that UK cookbooks are really good at marking when something is vegetarian or can easily become it.

When I was in London I had an impossible time finding food! I guess I should've done some more research before I went :( Sounds like I missed out!!

Now I def have to check out London. I would have thought somewhere in India (Ahmedabad, first vegetarian Pizza Hut!), but PETA is more about being Vegan than plain vegetarian, so this makes sense to me.

Wow, I never would have thought! That is pretty awesome, though, and just like Angelica said, another reason to go visit!

funny i would have guessed a city in India, especially since most people are vegetarians there.
