Glasgow has beaten the likes of London and Edinburgh to be named the most vegan city in the UK, according to a new survey commissioned by vegan-friendly restaurant chain Zizzi. 

The Clyde at Night

Almost a third – 28 per cent – of people surveyed by Zizzi’s Glasgow identified as vegan. And what is even more staggering is that the most common diet in Glasgow was found to be vegan (28 per cent), with low fat (23 per cent) on the rise and more people trying to cut sugar out of their diets (17 per cent).

Glasgow tops the table beating Birmingham on 18.6 per cent, Belfast on 10 per cent, London on 13.6 per cent and Edinburgh on 13.3 per cent.

It’s no surprise to us Glasgow has been crowned the vegan capital as the city has a host of vegan friendly restaurants and cafes, with many places to find delicious vegan food on offer. Take Mono for example, this is a go-to place for vegan burgers and food, and the Hug and Pint on Great Western Road, which serves up a mixed bag of vegan fare with an Asian influence.
