Makes travel as a vegan stress free
This app has been a life saver travelling across Japan. As some of you probably know it can be very time consuming trying to hunt down vegan food in foreign countries, throw in that madness they call kanji and you’ve got yourself a real struggle on your hands to stay fed. Every place I’ve tried on the app has been where it says, open when it says, and serving what it says. Well done to whatever genius made this app happen, you’ve made this holiday so much better for us. I’ll use this app everywhere I go for the rest of my life. To a non-vegan it may seem a simple thing to eat abroad but as vegans we can waste a lot of valuable holiday time reading endless menus.....not any more!! Thank you!
A life saver!
I recently travelled to Japan. Many people I knew who had been there warned me that it was nearly impossible to be vegan, or even vegetarian. Those people clearly didn’t have Happy Cow. It took a bit more effort to find places and I probably didn’t have the “authentic Japanese food experience”. However, I was surprised at how many vegan restaurants there were around. I got to try some beautiful plant based food, and experience the vegan movement in a different culture. This app made my holiday so much easier and created some wonderful eating memories I will never forget. Thank you!
Makes travelling super easy
This app was a life saver in Japan. I was travelling there expecting to eat super basic/bland foods, and I probably would have if it wasn’t for this app. We were super busy in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto, so whenever we had a quick break I could just hit the ‘vegan restaurants nearby’ button and there was always options with really precise instructions on the vegan options or what modifications you had to make. And it’s even handy to use at home in Australia too :)
