Anywhere on the west coast since that's where the vegetarian/vegan craze really became a hit.

Think about:
-The amount of vegetarian/vegan restaurants
-Variety of vegetarian/vegan foods(ethnic, health conscious, etc.)
-Perecentage of population vegetarian and/or vegan

you should visit India where more than 50% of the population is vegetarian in which some communities are 100% vegan
Bengaluru was found to be the most vegan-friendly city in India, based on a survey conducted by the Huffington Post India.
Other cities:
Chennai
Indore
Ahmedabad
Palitana

In which parallel universe? Either you've neither had what amounts to quality versions or you're just flaming. A great example many have modeled their vegetarian existence from (Moosewood Kitchen) is a shining example of a health conscious way of living, and not a fad like Paleo. https://moosewoodcooks.com/

I have to say, speaking as someone who has been a vegan for 22 years now (became one at 17, I'm now 39) when I went out to San Francisco I didn't find it to be particularly vegan friendly. I mean yeah, there were places to eat, but there were a lot of random restaurants that my wife and I found while walking around which either only had 1-2 vegan options, or in some cases things which looked like they'd be vegan had cheese or something in them. This was about a decade ago - I'm guessing it hasn't gotten much better, considering "flexitarian" is less in now, with things like offal really trendy in hipster cuisine.

Pure carb and sugar overload.

Yes for vegetarian, not so much for vegan. Ghee sneaks into a lot of Indian food, particularly the classic North Indian cuisine. Though I've learned what dishes to watch out for over the years even if it's not clearly listed.

I think my kitchen is the best place for vegetarian, and I'm not even a chef or cook. Just simple, fresh, local, etc. You don't have to go to a restaurant to get good food, plus you can be in charge, and know what's going into the preparation.

No one mentioned Loma Linda, CA? It's a small, predominantly Seventh Day Adventist town which has some of the highest life expectancies in the world, ten years above the national average.

PETA recently put out a list of the best vegan cities. The usual suspects made the list. What is surprising is that Omaha, Cleveland and Kansas City made the cut.


I live in Kansas City. We've always been known as a "cow town" and we're famous for BBQ--a red meat extravaganza.
