Fine Eateries Reflect the Growing Hunger for Meat- and Dairy-Free Dining
For Immediate Release:July 15, 2010
Contact:Ashley Gonzalez 757-622-7382 Vancouver, British Columbia -- Local restaurants Organic Lives, Gorilla Food, and the Loving Hut helped Vancouver grab sixth place among large cities in PETA's 2010 survey of the most vegetarian- and vegan-friendly cities in North America.
"Vancouver residents should be proud that their hometown is on the cutting edge of healthy cuisine that is Earth- and animal-friendly," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Because factory-farmed animals are subjected to intensive confinement and cruel conditions, more and more people are demanding meat- and dairy-free dining options."
The showstopper at Organic Lives is the masala cakes (almond cakes infused with fresh Indian masala mix and traditional chutney). Gorilla Food excels with its falafel wraps (romaine lettuce wraps filled with spicy seed-and-veggie falafel balls on a bed of zucchini hummus and topped with a seasoned tahini sauce and grainless tabouli). And after one bite of Loving Hut's golden rice bowl with marinated faux chicken strips and vegan shrimp, you'll know that you'll be coming back.
Washington, D.C., took top honors among big cities on the list, Portland, Ore., placed second, and Albuquerque, N.M., ranked third. Rounding out the top 10 are Atlanta, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto. The winner among smaller cities was Olympia, Wash.
PETA divided the survey of U.S. and Canadian cities into two categories: cities with a population of 300,000 or more and cities with a population of 300,000 or fewer. For each city, PETA took into account the number of vegetarian restaurants and vegetarian-friendly restaurants per capita and also asked for input from PETA supporters and staff members on the quality of the options. The mayor and tourism bureau of each city that ranked among the top 10 in either category will receive a framed certificate and a letter of congratulations.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
