Celebrate World Vegan Day Nov. 1, with these vegan dishes from around the world.

 

13-Course Vegan Holiday Menu at Hotel Ranga, Iceland

Known as one of the best places to see the Northern Lights on the south coast of Iceland, Hotel Ranga is reintroducing its vegan Christmas menu this year. In place of its famous annual weekend Christmas Buffet leading up to the holiday, the hotel launched a gourmet, 13-course menu. The vegan dishes, one for each Yule Lad (Iceland’s version of Santa yet in the form of mischievous, troll-like brothers with peculiar names), feature the likes of cinnamon-marinated beetroot and veggie meatballs.

 

Detox for a Better You + Vegan Menus at Westin Puerto Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

On the white sands of Mexico’s Pacific Coast, overlooking sparkling Banderas Bay, sits a former palm tree farm turned wellness resort that makes the ultimate vegan-friendly getaway at The Westin Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa. The resort offers a nature-inspired al fresco lobby, two shimmering pools surrounded by lush nature, endless ocean views and an idyllic ocean-meets-mountains backdrop. The resort has multiple restaurants, each offering vegan dishes and curated menus. Each menu offers different vegan options. Highlights include an avocado ceviche, avocado mousse, matcha pancakes and mouthwatering tofu enchiladas. Making mindful travel a breeze, travelers can also take advantage of each restaurants’ Detox Menu or book the full Detox for a Better You offer that includes conscious breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks, fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies and wellness shots.

 

Vibrant & Vegan Chefs Table in St. Maarten

As the “hub” of the Caribbean, St. Maarten is a melting pot of different cultures which is reflected in the food you can find on the island. In a twist for the Caribbean, the Dutch island has seen an incredible rise in vegan culture during the pandemic. Restaurants are expanding offerings as the island is seeing an influx of locally grown vegetables, making the vegan movement emerge at the forefront of the culinary scene. Must-visit restaurants for vegan food are Ital Shack, Freegan Food Cafe and The Flavor Academy.

 

Imaginative and Impassioned Vegan Offerings at Hilton Aventura Miami, Florida

Set in Greater Miami’s upscale northernmost neighborhood of Aventura is Hilton Aventura Miami. The hotel’s stunning skyline views, elevated pool deck with cabanas and wait service, fitness studio and sprawling rooms set the stage for its robust culinary program. At every turn, vegan guests will be delighted with culinary-focused touches and plant-based offerings.
