London Is Top City For Vegetarians

People for the Ethical treatment of Animals (Peta) have named our fair city as the top place for a meat-free meal. London, with its huge range of international cuisine, beat other major cities such as New York, Melbourne and Mumbai. For some reason, however, PETA don't say how they arrived at the decision, so we're at a loss to know whether the accolade is ours for measurable reasons, or merely by way of a subjective or calculated panel decision. Facts not opinions, fellahs, or it's hard to know whether we can trust what you say when it comes to the serious aspects of animal treatment. Nobody can deny, though, that London is admirably stocked with veggie dining opportunities. PETA have put together a decent summary of some of their (and our) faves.

From the PETA website:

"And don't forget the staple food of most travelling vegetarians: Turkish restaurants are all over London, made mainstream by the Tas restaurant chain along the South Bank and in the London Bridge area."

If they're using Turkish restaurants (which typically offer far more meat dishes than non-meat) as an exemplar of vegetarian dining, then it's safe to say this report is cobblers.

PETA issuing a statement that is cobblers?

Blimey, I am surprised!
