First Vegan Restaurant Opens in Russia

Posted on 29 April 2011

It appears that veganism and the demand for vegan food food is spreading further and wide …

The 7th of April 2011 saw the opening of Russia’s first vegan restaurant – the Moscow branch of international franchise ‘Loving Hut’.

The animal rights movement is accelerating by the day in Russia. However despite its growing popularity, Russian vegetarians still have great difficulty in finding the vegetarian food and most cook for themselves (sounds familiar?). The first vegetarian restaurant opened in Moscow in 2001 and there are also several vegetarian cafes.

Vegetarian and vegan products in stores are also difficult to find as ready-made vegetarian dishes, tofu, soya products and such like are still quite uncommon, even in Moscow.
