If you happened to walk past this vegan restaurant, you might not even recognize it. It’s in an old building that was renovated, with a rainbow flag and a “Legalize Gay Marriage” sticker on it’s sign, “About Animals”.

There’re more and more modern and trendy vegan restaurants in Taiwan over the past few years, changing the stereotype that being vegan equals being religious or conventional. There’re hundreds of reasons for someone to go vegan, and for the owners of About Animals – two cool-looking vegan ladies – it’s all about the animals. The restaurant not only provides yummy food, but also hosts animal rights events from time to time. Every Tuesday, 10% of their revenue will be donated to TSPCA.

There’re customers like this one all the time – having a food coma after devouring a delicious meal.

These are my favorites:
Tofu on Rice with Kimchi Veg Patty

韓式豆腐卡滋蓋飯

I seriously LOVE it! (but I asked them to take out the scallion as I’m a picky eater)

芝麻豆腐堡

Tartar Sauce Hot Dog

This is also one of the restaurants that I always go when I’m back in Taipei. It’s touching to see a group of people doing the best they can to help make a change for animals and our planet. Sometimes we may feel hopeless seeing how billions of animals are still exploited and suffering every year, but things are changing, and I have hope. You can even bring your furry friends here since this is a dog/cat-friendly restaurant. Seating is limited, so it’s advised that you make a reservation.

ps. There’s a vegan grocery store right across the street, too! I’ll write about it next time. 🙂
