Everyone who has been to Lviv will return here in the future to discover new amazing places.
"Where to eat in Lviv?" is a frequently asked question. There are many options, but the quest is a bit more complicated if you are vegan/vegetarian. Here they are, places where you can eat delicious food in Lviv. All the places we mention have a vegetarian menu and some of them are 100% vegetarian or vegan.
Veganism/vegetarianism is not just about protecting animals and the environment, being vegan/vegetarian is much more, it is also about lifestyle. Vegans don't just eat meat, they also avoid all products of animal origin, such as milk or eggs.
- People choose not to eat meat products because they are aware of their impact, whether it's regarding health or the planet, climate, animals, or world hunger issues - there are dozens of reasons.
- So it is not surprising that the vegetarian culinary scene in Lviv is full of incredible dishes that sometimes seem to have just come from a futuristic dream (dishes made from Beyond Meat products, for example).
- Almost everything you can imagine, including vegan burgers, sushi, hot dogs, and much more you can taste in Lviv. Maybe in Lviv, your taste buds will take you on a new journey of unknown flavors…
- Who knows, you might like it so much that you wonder if you're vegan?! We, of course, do not urge you to anything, but we insist to give it a try only because it is delicious!
So there are more than enough options for vegan places in Lviv to make you happy. But all this, if you know where to look for it!
