It’s World Vegan Day! All around the world people are celebrating veganism and the benefits it brings not only to our body but to our natural environment and ecosystem too.
Although Mediterranean dishes tended to be meat-heavy, Malta has its fair share of vegan outlets, or restaurants that serve vegan food, so that you can celebrate this wonderful and peaceful day with your friends and family.
And even if you’re not vegan, these restaurants and dishes are totally worth checking out. Who knows, by the end of the day you might find yourself converting to the vegan way!
Check out these vegan-friendly eateries, listed in no specific order.
1. Green Sushi, Msida
The simplicity of sushi is that you can pretty much make it out of whatever you like. In this case, Greens Sushi in Msida has rolled out two vegan set menus; the “Shut up And Take My Money” set and the “OMFG” set.
The best thing is you’re at liberty to make your own combinations!
2. Lemon N Lime, Marsaskala
Just because you go vegan, doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a juicy burger. In fact, after trying Lemon N Lime’s Crispy Jackfruit Burger, you might never want to try the real thing ever again.
This beast of a burger even comes with its own vegan mayo and avocado…mmm.
3. Mother India, Mellieħa
For the outsider, vegan food might be lettuce and carrots, but it’s so much more than that.
In fact, the vegan lifestyle cuts across many cultures and can be found in Indian food as well.
Mother of India in Mellieħa is here to show you that the best Indian food is in fact vegan food with a set menu that is absolutely delicious.
4. Foam and Fork, Gżira
You don’t have to go to a vegan restaurant to eat vegan food. In fact, most restaurants today have vegan menu items like Foam and Fork in Gżira which has recreated its famous Surf and Turf burger – vegan style. Totally rad, dude!
