Find out why these towns have captured the admiration of vegetarians the world over.
Tel Aviv, Israel
It's no secret why this Israeli coastal metropolis keeps popping up on so many vegetarian and vegan food rankings – this city is truly making its mark in the world of plant-based cuisine. In 2015, Conde Nast Traveler praised the city as a vegetarian food capital, citing its "impressive wave of vegetable-centric restaurants." Not long before that, the Daily Meal named Tel Aviv the top vegan destination in the world, besting cities like New York, Portland and Berlin. Standouts include Nanuchka, a Georgian-themed vegan spot known for delicious handmade dumplings; Anastasia, with its macadamia nut crepes and tahini turmeric spread; and the North African-themed Chiripom, famous for a back-home favorite snack served in a party hat.
