Veggie Vancouverites can rejoice as nine restaurants are included in Canada’s top 50 vegetarian restaurants.

In celebration of World Vegetarian Day, the top online restaurant-reservation company, OpenTable, announced its list of best vegetarian restaurants.

The list was generated through diner reviews collected between August 1, 2018 and July 31, 2019.

Among that list were several B.C. hotspots with great vegetarian options. This comes as no surprise as B.C. has the most vegans and vegetarians in the country.


OpenTable’s Top Vegetarian Restaurants In B.C.

  • East is East – This restaurant is a mainstay on Main Street, offering a fusion of Indian, Middle Eastern and Afghan food. (4413 Main Street)
