Article Featured Image

New year, new you, new lifestyle choices!

Start the year on a different note and why not try the trend that’s been taking the world by storm!? Switch it up and try going vegan for an entire month this Veganuary. And with restos amping up their vegan menus, it won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything.

In fact, with Expo 2020’s lineup of exquisite vegan offerings, the real FOMO lies in not trying them out at all.

A vegan diet excludes all meat, fish, dairy, eggs and other animal products. Veganuary challenges you to follow this plant-based diet for the whole month of Jan because choosing a plant-based diet is kinder to our planet and our animal friends.

As for those who just can’t compromise on the taste of meat, the restos mentioned below may just leave you pleasantly surprised with their meat-less meat taste!

8. XYST: Plant-based shawarma, stuffed flatbreads and more!
