Over the last few years, we’ve seen lots of vegan restaurants make headlines. Gordon Ramsay stunned fans earlier this year by showing a vegan remake of his signature dish, the beef wellington, at one of his restaurants. Even in digital media, vegan foods are being promoted by celebrities. ‘Game of Thrones’ star Maisie Williams ate vegan wings on the YouTube series Hot Ones, earning the episode 4.9 million views. All over, people seem to be talking about vegan food. Which leaves us asking the question: which places are the best? And which restaurants were the first to break the mold? With this list, you can check out some incredible vegan restaurants all over the world. These are some of the top vegan restaurants that are breaking records. They stand out from the crowd, are winning awards, have lasted over a hundred years, and above all, have great food.



Location: Dubai, UAE
Record: World’s Largest Vegan Restaurant
Veganity opened up in October 2019 by 29-year-old chef Sky Sommers. This restaurant boasts a huge menu of over 200 items, all plant based, organic, non-GMO, and preservative free. Not only is it a large restaurant: it’s also a meal prep and delivery service.

Haus Hiltl

Location: Zürich, Switzerland
Record: World’s Oldest Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant
This restaurant has been breaking records even before records were kept. Located in the beautiful city of Zürich, Haus Hitl has been serving up incredible meat-free meals since 1898. Not only were they the only meat-free restaurant for many years in Switzerland, they were also the city’s first restaurant with an all-electric kitchen. Nearly every item on their menu today is vegan, and even most of the vegetarian items can be made vegan by asking for no cheese.

Record: World’s First Vegan Zero Waste Restaurant
It comes as great news that there is finally a restaurant that is breaking records by becoming zero waste. Zero waste is primarily a set of principles that aims to produce zero garbage.

One of the most incredible things about this restaurant is the machine that turns any food waste into compost in just 24-hours.

The Cheeze Factory Restaurant

Location: Baraboo, Wisconsin, USA
Record: Wisconsin’s Largest Cheese Mart Remade Vegan
Wisconsin is ranked fourth in the world in terms of dairy cheese production. In sheer numbers, Wisconsin produces over 2.8 billion pounds of cheese every year. Wisconsin is also known most commonly as ‘the dairy state,’ because of how much cheese is made. So it came as a huge surprise when the largest cheese mart in the state was remade to be a completely vegan restaurant. Known now as the Cheeze Factory Restaurant, this spot is loved by dairy and non-dairy lovers. Some popular menu items include healthy flatbreads and savoury bowls. This restaurant is breaking records simply due to how it came to be.
