The results are for PETA’s 2022 list Top 10 Vegetarian Friendly Beach Cities in the US, and San Diego’s plethora of vegan festivals, restaurants and innovative animal-free food have landed it on the list. PETA sent one award certificate to Mayor Todd Gloria.

“From quick and easy street food to international cuisine, restaurants in America’s Finest City are preparing some of the best vegan food for vacationers and residents alike,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “San Diego joins all the other great beach cities on PETA’s list of hot spots for the pet-friendly fare people are craving this summer.”

San Diego celebrates vegan dining with him International Vegan Film Festival & Dinner (in August), it is Encinitas Vegan Food Popup (in August and September) and of Reggae Vegan Fest (coming in 2023).

The many distinct vegan-friendly restaurants include Rollin’ Rootswhere guests can enjoy vegan po’boys and mac and cheese balls, and Cerealswhere menu highlights include “pork” banh mi sandwiches—with jackfruit, vegan cheese, and pickled daikon—and pan-seared fettuccine with mushrooms and bok choy.

There is also The Yasai for vegan sushi and ramen, Grilled vegetables for crispy Buffalo “chicken” tortillas, and Peace Pies for sweet treats like fudge brownies and cocoa truffles.

Consumer demand for vegan food fueled the vegan food market: It grew two and a half times faster in 2021 than between 2018 and 2020 and is expected to reach $22 billion by 2025.

Every person who goes vegan saves the lives of nearly 200 animals a year. shrinks the carbon footprint dramatically. reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. and helps prevent future pandemics. SARS, swine flu, bird flu and COVID-19 all came from confining or killing animals for food.

Rounding out PETA’s list is Atlantic City, New Jersey. Charleston, South Carolina; Galveston, Texas; Grand Haven, Michigan; Long Beach, New York; Nags Head, North Carolina; Newport, Rhode Island? Santa Cruz, CA; and West Palm Beach, Florida.

PETA – whose motto says, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human supremacy. For more information, visit PETA.org or follow the group Twitter, Facebookthe Instagram.
