Comedy, live music and entertainment venue Komedia Bath has been named as one of the top vegan restaurants to visit.
Bath – It’s hard to ignore the increasing number of vegan selections on menus these days, whether it’s at the corner coffee shop or the restaurant at one of the most prestigious cultural arts centres in Great Britain.
And nowhere is this growing trend more evident than at Bath’s Komedia, which PETA has just named one of the top five vegan-friendly cultural arts venues in the UK.
PETA’s Mimi Bekhechi said: “We give Komedia three cheers for mastering the art of finely prepared vegan food. All five cultural arts venues on PETA’s list are helping patrons choose meals that are as delicious as they are good for our health, the Earth and animals.”
Topping PETA’s favourites on Komedia’s menu is the cashew nut and wild mushroom burger with cranberry sauce, Bath Bakery roll and deep-fried wedges.
Other big crowd-pleasers are the courgette, potato and coriander curry served with popadoms and homemade mango chutney and the roasted portobello mushroom and roast garlic spelt risotto served with balsamic reduction, peppery red watercress and Somerset microherbs.
Rounding out the top five vegan-friendly cultural arts venues are Chapter in Cardiff, Watershed in Bristol, QUAD in Derby and the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal.
People are going vegan for a variety of reasons. Vegans are less prone to cancer, heart disease, strokes, diabetes and obesity than meat-eaters are.
Vegan meals are also kinder to the Earth, since factory farming is a major contributor to greenhouse-gas emissions, soil erosion and water pollution. And of course, going vegan spares animals immense suffering on factory farms, in abattoirs and on the decks of fishing boats.
