The most important thing for many vegetarians traveling abroad is the availability of good quality vegetarian food, of course you can buy the necessary ingredients at the grocery store and cook up a meal at home that’s purely vegetarian, but sometimes you just want to indulge yourself and eat out in luxury at one of those fine dining places. Not so long ago, that would have been a challenge as most of the eating outlets at major cities abroad had very limited veg options on their menu or none at all – a case in point being Mc Donald’s in USA, which was sued by a vegetarian activist group for frying their French Fries in beef tallow and conveniently forgetting to mention to their clientele. But times they are a changing and if now, you fancy some good quality vegetarian fare, whether you are an immigrant or a traveler, you have a wide array of pure veg restaurants to choose from, wherever you are.
