20 Vegetarian Friendly Restaurants Around the World


As a vegetarian married to a carnivore, finding happily satisfying places to eat for the both of us is often difficult. My husband is happy to eat vegetarian meals on most occasions, but every once and awhile he does request the possibility of some form of animal protein and is exceptionally fond of a good burger. Having traveled both inside and out of each of our home continents, we’ve been lucky enough to find a few spots that are absolute standouts on both of our lists.

DADA FALAFEL-Berlin, Germany (best falafel I’ve had outside of Israel)
