Previously we shared some essential veggie survival tips just in case you were planning to go to one of the Top 5 Toughest Places to Be Vegetarian (which you may be interested to know were Argentina, Central Asia, Germany, Philippines, and Portugal). Well, blogs like that are a thing of the past thanks to HappyCow – a worldwide vegetarian and vegan restaurant guide available online and in App form!
What is HappyCow?
HappyCow is a company dedicated to making healthy, vegetarian, and vegan food easy to find – wherever you are! This includes finding suitable yummy delights at restaurants, bars and cafes as well as shops and delicatessens, all over the world. HappyCow also encourages likeminded people to get together in its own online community.
What does the HappyCow app do?
With the app you can search for a place to get your food using a variety of filters to suit, including an interactive map. You can even organise shops and restaurants with an upcoming trip in mind – what a way to plan a roadtrip… around the food you want to eat! You can also access directions, reviews and the websites of chosen eateries, plus share your own views and photos with other community members. In a nutshell the app offers this:
* Search filters by location, type of food or type of store
* Browse popular cafes or restaurants
* View an interactive map
* Store your favourite places to find your favourite foods
* Plan where to go for food on an upcoming trip
* Get directions, phone numbers, reviews, and website information
* Share your experiences and photos
* Add reviews and advice for your other HappyCow users to find
HappyCow also have a simple mobile version of their website (with fast loading pages) available for those who don’t want to use an app – visit happycow.net/m
Easy to use, easy to understand and jam-packed with excellent information provided by the whole HappyCow community – that is the general consensus of the very happy and very large majority of users. To be fair to HappyCow, any negative points that have been raised in app store reviews have been fairly answered and explained, and they are actively using feedback to improve user experience. We think this app is fabulous for all foodies – anyone who likes to embrace a healthy way of living and eating – and an absolute gem for free from meat foodies who like to travel the world!
