New Delhi | Monday, Jul 9 2018 IST
Giving the growing vegan trend a much-awaited push, Delhi's foremost food mall, Epicuria, has introduced special vegan menus at its leading restaurants in Nehru Place. With restaurants like Fio, Dhaba, Yuzu, Big Wong, Chatter House, Lord of the Drinks, Flying Saucer and Fidahh on-board, all those who are curious about the vegan options in Delhi now have access to traditional Italian, Punjabi, authentic Japanese,Lebanese, and more. All these restaurants have whipped up special vegan-friendly menus in addition to their original menus.

This initiative is a joint collaboration between the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations Fiapo and Epicuria to create the first vegan friendly hub in the capital, which caters to people with different dietary preferences. Other cities like Pune and Bangalore are already bursting with vegan restaurants, while Delhi has less than a handful of vegan-friendly eateries. Although most chefs have the ability to easily customise vegetarian dishes to suit a plant-based diet, the lack of options in the city hinders the transition of many who are willing to adopt a vegan lifestyle. "The idea of getting cruelty-free options in a place where so many people have access to it is amazing, It will definitely bring people one step closer to leading vegan lifestyles," says Meghana Adhikari, a Delhi-based activist, according to a release here on Monday. Fiapo Executive Director Varda Mehrotra said, "In the last decade there has been a tremendous shift in how veganism is perceived in India. The growth of home-grown companies and digital awareness has increased the number of vegans and transitioning vegans. And as a national federation with the largest network of vegan advocates and volunteers, we are working with many corporates to introduce vegan products and vegan options".
