Tel Aviv, Israel
With more than 400 restaurants catering to vegans and vegetarians, Tel Aviv is one of the great cities of the world for meatless dining. This isn’t really surprising when you consider that Israel has the largest population of vegans, per capita, of any country in the world. Even international chains have jumped on board; an Israeli Domino's Pizza franchise was the first of its brand to offer vegan pies.
The sunny climate here is ideal for growing produce, so a lot of what is served and sold is locally grown. It is easy to self-cater while staying in Tel Aviv by just walking to the local street market and buying produce. Shakes, salads, vegan pizzas and pastas and that Middle Eastern favorite, hummus, are all among the vegetarian-friendly offerings in this Mediterranean city.
