The growing popularity of vegetarianism and veganism contributes to the fact that restaurants and cafes specialising in meatless cuisine pop up like mushrooms. Also small non-vegetarian spots introduce dishes whose ingredients are not of animal origin so customers interested in such a lifestyle do not have problems when it comes to eating out. Fortunately!
