HappyCow is the world’s largest and most popular guide for finding vegan restaurants online. With more than 100,000 restaurants listed in more than 180 countries, you’re sure to find a vegan-friendly spot to dine wherever you travel when you use HappyCow.
HappyCow feels its time is now. Among U.S. diners alone, there’s been a 600 percent increase in vegan lifestyles since 2016.
“When I first became vegan over 28 years ago, I struggled to find vegan food at restaurants. Today, I am amazed that there are over 7,000 vegan restaurants listed globally on HappyCow,” commented Eric Brent, CEO, HappyCow.
HappyCow is staffed by vegans and vegetarians, and ran by vegans, and all the information found on the HappyCow app and website is written from a vegan perspective, so you know you can trust it as a source.
The HappyCow app is available for both iOS and Android. Downloaded more than 1 million times, it’s considered a vegan and vegetarian must-have.
Users locate vegan food near their location, or in any location worldwide and, using in-app filters, can find the cuisine they like at a distance they prefer. A map also provides directions between the user’s starting point and their destination, and they can then save the information for later use. You can even find little-known vegan options and dietary requirements using the app, from macrobiotic options to vegan dairy treats. The app is $4.
The HappyCow website, meanwhile, includes a regularly updated vegan blog, social forums for vegans and information pertaining to all things vegan travel. Additionally, a monthly newsletter features global restaurant and travel highlights and reviews.
