i visited last summer, though only spent 1 or 2 days in the city. i don't know about it being THE best place for vegans in the country, but i was very pleased with the number of options available. my partner and i had lunch at Mono, which seemed quite similar to Cafe Kino in Bristol.

I'm from Glasgow. Well, I have lived here all my adult life anyways. What would you like to know, teacup? Glasgow is certainly awesome for vegans, with loads of vegan cafes/bars, veggie places with loads of vegan options, knowledgeable omni places that will make you a cheese-free burrito or some awesome falafel or a Cheezly-topped pizza.

I mean, I think some bits of that article are pretty shitty (I'm so tired of the 'people in Glasgow are fat and eat shitty food allatimes' trope) and part of me does wonder if it's a slightly more subtle than usual PETA bollocks of causing controversy for the hell of it... But why not Glasgow? We got it pretty sweet up here in terms of options.

interrobang, I was just wanting to bring the article to the attention of the forum ... some of the comments are interesting talking about specific places in Glasgow where they have had meals. Sadly many comments are drivel ...

I live in Cambridge where one would think being a university town there would be lots of vegan places to eat ... alas no, only a few ... which is why often when we go out I just eat some of the vegetable side dishes.
