PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has released their top vegetarian-friendly cities in North America, and Vancouver has topped the list in Canada, and we also landed sixth place Β in North America, coming in behind Washington, D.C. (1st), Portland, Oregon (2nd), Albuquerque, New Mexico (3rd), Atlanta, Georgia (4th) and Seattle, Washington (5th). You can view the entire list of winners here.

Especially not while they’re serving up almond masala cakes at Organic Lives, spicy falafel wraps at Gorilla Food, and a golden rice bowl with marinated Gardein strips, mock shrimp, and sautΓ©ed tofu at Loving Hut.”

What are your favourite vegetarian restaurants in the city? Or your favourite vegetarian dish at any restaurant for that matter?
