From fully-fledged ve­gan restau­rants to ve­gan ice cream par­lours, there are a num­ber of in­ter­na­tional op­tions avail­able for those who wish to con­vert to ve­g­an­ism. Am­rita Gokal who is a 22-year-old stu­dent, be­came a ve­gan while she was study­ing in London, UK. “Su­per­mar­kets in London have a sec­tion for ve­g­ans. It was easy to find ve­gan restau­rants too. But when I re­turned to In­dia, the op­tions be­came lim­ited. So, I couldn’t do it (stay ve­gan) any­more,” says Gokal.

How­ever, the con­cept is now mak­ing its way into the menus of eater­ies in metropoli­tan cities. Sye­sha Kapoor, co-owner, Boveda Bistro, Mumbai, sec­onds the thought. “A large num­ber of peo­ple are in­quis­i­tive, but restau­rants that serve only ve­gan food are not fea­si­ble at the mo­ment,” says Kapoor.

Samir Prasad, who owns a ve­gan tif­fin and de­liv­ery ser­vice, called Ve­gan Bites, says he caters to 250 ve­g­ans around the city daily.

Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Sonam Kapoor’s de­ci­sion to turn ve­gan re­cently has drawn at­ten­tion to the diet once again. Those who are con­sid­er­ing adopt­ing a life de­void of milk prod­ucts and meat need to look no fur­ther. Here’s ev­ery­thing you need to know to get started.
