Taipei has been ranked as the most vegan-friendly city in Asia by PETA, thanks to a burgeoning collection of vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants and cafes.

The American animal rights organization cites Taipei’s “cutting-edge vegan meals and a powerful community of animal advocates” as factors behind the northern city’s top spot.

The group lists several well-known vegan eateries making everything from vegan burgers with wasabi mayo, to kimchi hotpots and mixed grilled skewers.

Foodies can also indulge their sweet tooth at vegan bakeries making delectable desserts such as lemon-and-salted-caramel chocolate tarts, and a vegan version of Taiwan’s famous pineapple cake.
