From Sydney to Singapore, Berlin to Bangkok, and in dozens of cities and countries around the globe, vegan and vegetarian cuisine is a way of life for millions. World travellers who like to keep their eats plant-based have an increasing number of worthy options for dining out well, and this new list puts a Vancouver restaurant at the very top of the pack.

Big 7 Travel, a travel site geared towards young mobile users, has just named their picks for the 50 Best Vegan Restaurants in the World. Taking the number one spot: The Acorn in Vancouver.

“The Acorn is a vegetable-forward restaurant and bar at the heart of Vancouver’s Main St.,: describes Big 7 Travel. “They are inspirational when it comes to their vegan options. This is the sort of place you would happily dine in every day for the rest of your life – it’s just that tasty.”

The travel site notes that they made their choice based on the restaurants’ “dedication to plant-based food and sustainable and seasonal menus,” as well as previous media coverage, blogs, and reviews. The site took votes from their 1.5 million community of readers and followers.

The Acorn is certainly no stranger to success here in Vancouver among the vegetarian, vegan, and flexitarian. They’ve been lauded locally by writers and publications and received several dining awards, as well as coverage in Conde Nast Traveller and Bon Appetit, to name just a couple.

Need to (re)visit this terrific veggie restaurant? They’re located at 3995 Main St., and they don’t take reservations (parties of 6-8 people may call to book their “family table”) so plan ahead to get there early to line up and/or wait for a table. But it’s definitely worth the wait.
