Bangalore, which boasts of a wide landscape of restaurants and eateries, added another tag with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) naming it the “Most vegan-friendly city in India.”

In a release on Monday, PETA attributed the tag to pro-vegan initiatives which “reflect the growing hunger for meat-free and dairy-free dining.”

Apart from local all-vegan menus, the launch of such menus in popular hotels and restaurants has earned the city the label. Vegans are vegetarians who do not eat eggs or dairy products.

In addition to vegan and vegetarian restaurants, various groups and forums that campaign for animal rights are active in the city, the PETA release said, including a guide to vegan restaurants, shops and cafés.

“According to Google trends, searches for the word ‘vegan’ are on the rise across the country, and most of them come from Bangalore,” the release added.

PETA will send Mayor N. Shanthakumari a plaque in recognition of the honour, the release said.
