London has been named the most vegetarian city in the world. PETA gave London the honors because of the city's abundant vegetarian restaurants and meatless ethnic cuisine. Additionally vegetarians who visit London will find that grocery stores clearly label vegan options making it easy to choose meat free meals.

Paul McCartney, who has been in the news lately promoting his Meat Free Monday campaign, gave PETA's decision a thumbs up and hosted a video for the animal rights organization discussing the appalling conditions perpetrated by factory farming. Paul McCartney is known for his saying, "If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian."  (Photo credit:bruchez / CC BY-SA 2.0)

I have my doubt that London is the most vegetarian friendly city. I would think Taiwan as a whole and many cities in Taiwan would beat London. It is possible that London is more vegan friendly or more English friendly. I would love to get a response from peta. Thanks.

PETA uses the comprehensive, vegan definition of vegetarianism. Sorry to say, but if it's impossible to get dairy and egg-free meals somewhere, then it is not vegetarian-friendly.


I love Paul McCartney! And I want to go to London too! :)
