The Ultimate Guide To Veganuary

Happy Veganuary! Who’s taking part this year? The annual challenge to ditch the meat and dairy has now been going strong since 2014, and it gets bigger and better every year.

Here at Hawkker, we are particularly excited to celebrate since it’s an excuse to go out and try some of the many incredible, independent restaurants, bars and cafes offering vegan options – and ones that are totally vegan year-round.

Gone are the days when a bowl of chips or a dry bean burger would be the only vegan-friendly item on the menu. Every year, independent restaurants grow more innovative and experimental with their vegan menus, and now we’re here to help you hunt them down.

As we are big fans of the plant-based scene, we are always adding new lists to Hawkker that cater to the vegan or vegan-curious foodies out there. So, whether you’re opting to go vegan for your health, for the planet, for animals, or just as a Veganuary experiment, our team has you covered.
