PLEASE SHARE to all your animal loving friends:

Scotland for Animals gives a big welcome to all the vegans and vegetarians visiting our vibrant city of Glasgow

You will find that it’s very easy to eat. We have put together a list of vegan-friendly places in the vicinity of where most tourists will be congregating. If you have any place you would like to add just let us know.

This is not a definitive list. But it’s just some of our favourites. In any restaurant you will easily find at least one vegetarian option, and 95% have a vegan option. Many restaurants are very keen to please and will alter a dish to make it vegan.

There are still some restaurants where they don’t quite understand the word ‘vegan’ so reinforce that you mean no dairy or eggs or meat or fish. Asian restaurants can sometimes be the worst culprits for this.

Many cafes sell soya milk for tea and coffee. If you want vegan hot chocolate - also check that the chocolate powder is vegan.

Chip shops - that famous Glasgow staple. Also known as a “Glasgow salad” - ha. Most cook in vegetable oil but they sometimes cook the meat items in the same fat. If this is something that bothers you then check first. That’s pretty much all you will get in a chip shop that is vegan. Except fritters (potatoes in batter - extra unhealthy and tasty). If you want a chip buttie (chips in a roll) then ask for “a dry roll” ie without butter.
