Vegan in Europe

As you might have guessed by the previous post, explaining a vegan diet in some countries is trickier than others. Language barriers and cultural differences make it even harder in some situations. That said, I’ve never been to a city were I couldn’t find several amazing vegan options even after being told by locals that a vegan diet was unheard of in their entire country. Given that, here’s a few resources I use that have been helpful on this trip (as well as previous travels):

I highly recommend Yellow Sunshine and Hans Wurst.

Of these, definitely big recommendations for Formosa, Rupps and Vegetasia.
