Today Online has described a major city in Australia as the 'vegan capital of the world'.
According to the article by Balvinder Sandhu, Melbourne offers a huge range of eateries for those seeking plant-based options.
Sandhu writes: "The vegan scene in Melbourne has been growing steadily, and the city has even been dubbed by the international press as the ‘vegan capital of the world’.
"The inner-city suburb of Fitzroy especially is abuzz with dining options for those into a plant-based diet, and the selection of venues across the city include restaurants, pizza joints and ice-cream bars, and anything from Asian to Mexican fare."
The writer goes on to list five top plant-based eateries in the city:
- Yong Green Food
- Girls & Boys
- Red Sparrow Pizza
- Loving Hut
- Smith & Deli
Sandhu is not the first to tout the city as the global best for vegans - a number of outlets have suggested the same thing.
Earlier this year, University of Melbourne academic Dr. Lauren Rosewarne called the growth of veganism an 'extension of the clean-eating obsession'.
She told news.com.au: "Vegan cafes are able to take advantage of a market of people who are diet and health conscious, who perceive vegetable and grain-based foods as healthier choices than meat or dairy, and who are happy - and prepared to pay - to have their turmeric latte or their cheeseless cheesecake prepared by someone else."
