Are you a vegetarian looking for vegan restaurants in Hanoi? This article is just for you.
I don’t know why you’re vegetarian. Maybe you’re a vegetarian because of your religion, because you think being a vegetarian is healthy, or you simply don’t like eating meat. Vietnamese people too, there are many vegetarians for many different reasons. Therefore, in Hanoi where I live, there are also many vegan restaurants to serve vegetarians.
Although I am not a vegetarian, I am a food enthusiast. Therefore, my friends and I often go to vegan restaurants to enjoy vegetarian dishes during times when we are tired of eating meat. And here are the top best vegan restaurants in Hanoi that I have ever experienced.
