Portland is PETA’s Most Vegan Friendly City

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

 

Could PETA have picked any other city? Of course not. Portland has to top PETA's list of most vegan friendly cities.

PETA flagged retiring Mayor Charlie Hales leadership.

Here is what PETA had to say:

"This year, Portland, Oregon, takes the top spot on PETA’s list, thanks in part to its array of vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants. For example, Back to Eden Bakery serves up egg- and dairy-free baked goods and ice cream sundaes. Vtopian Cheese Shop & Delioffers over 20 vegan artisan cheeses, plus vegan pepperoni melts, paninis, and cheesecake. Homegrown Smoker Vegan BBQ features meat-free barbecue and cheesesteak subs, tempeh ribs, and Mac No-Cheese. Portobello Vegan Trattoria prepares lobster mushroom potato cakes, ravioli, tiramisu, and house-made coconut ice cream—all-vegan, of course. Petunia’s Pies & Pastriesserves everything from vegan biscuits and gravy and Belgian waffles to blue corn tacos and vegan grilled cheese. Even Portland’s iconic Voodoo Doughnut now offers vegan doughnuts.

In addition to many meat-free restaurants, Portland’s all-vegan enterprises include a bed and breakfast, a summer camp, a punk-metal bar, a strip mall, a tattoo shop, and even a strip club for those seeking a bit more excitement!

And that’s not all. It’s fairly easy to find vegan family medical practitioners, vegan counselors, vegan real-estate agents, and other lifestyle services offered by vegans in Portland."
