The online site Chef’s Pencil evaluates Google Adwords and Trends data, alongside web search details, to determine the lifestyle-related rankings. Veganism is becoming a more popular lifestyle in Vancouver, presumably because of Meatless Mondays, Veganuary, or people who greedily stick to this way of life. The city has been re-ranked among the best-known cities in the world for vegans. It is also the best-known city in North America to be part of the compilation after Portland, which tops the list. No other Canadian city has cracked the ten-best list.
People In Vancouver Seeking Many Different Vegan Food Items
The website states that there has been a 28% YoY (Year-over-Year) increase for vegan searches in this city last year, as well as a 68% increase compared to 2018. Some of the common search phrases for the plant-based diet options in Vancouver are those including the words pizza, lasagne, and pancakes.
It is one of those cities that people describe as a food lover’s paradise as the food scene here is so diverse. It is a place with mountains, woodland, and other natural attractions, so people spend a lot of time outdoors here. Therefore, it is only natural that it is diverse when it comes to culinary options.
The fact that there is a large number of vegan restaurants in Vancouver perhaps contributed to the ranking. Some of the new inclusions in the city’s ever-growing vegan food scene are places such as Pizzeria Grano, MILA, and The Cider House. Besides the traditional places to eat, you can also come across a fair number of vegan food trucks in this particular Canadian city. Some of those food trucks are the services of traditional restaurants here. That means even if you cannot go to one of those restaurants, you have the option to go down the truck route.
As for countries, the UK comes at the top of the website’s list of rankings based on Google data. As per the site, the UK’s position is partly due to Veganuary as well as the coverage for veganism in the media. Interestingly, Canada comes so far down the ten-best list for countries. Meanwhile, Australia comes in at the second spot in it. Australians are generally known for their love and care for animals, which is part of the reason why plant-based meat is popular there. Still, its ranking position is incredible given the low population of the country.
