âVeganâ means a vegetarian who does not consume animal products such as meat, milk, or eggs. There are various types of vegetarians, such as âlacto obosâ that eat milk and eggs, âlactoâ that eat dairy products, âpescoâ that eats fish and shellfish, and âvegansâ that are strictly vegetarian. In addition to health aspects such as preventing adult diseases and lowering blood sugar, a vegetarian diet can also be expected to protect animal rights. Recently, interest in the environment has emerged as a social issue, and vegetarianism has gone beyond a fad to become a culture. Here are 5 of the best vegan restaurants where you can catch two healthy and environmental rabbits.

âSeegemmejourâ is a small shop decorated with Renoir's masterpieces, making you feel like you've come to a European gallery. The signature menu is âspinach pesto pasta,â which is flavored with spinach pesto that has been simmered for 6 hours. Just looking at lots of young, green leaves makes me feel healthy. Spinach pesto wraps savory soba noodles to further enhance the aromatic flavor.
