LATIN AMERICA


When I find myself in Latin America, my primary concern revolves around locating vegetarian dining options. However, I've come to realize that a simple solution exists: communicating my dietary preference to the person taking my order. In Spanish, you can request "sin carne," which means without meat. Often, I'd initially peruse the menu and feel disheartened due to the limited availability of vegetarian choices. Nevertheless, I've discovered that the best approach is to engage with the staff and request modifications, such as omitting meat from a dish. Utilizing tools like Google Translate can be incredibly helpful, or if you're fortunate enough to be accompanied by someone who speaks Spanish, your dining experience becomes all the more enjoyable.

NORTH AMERICA - BRITAIN - EUROPE

The concern I had regarding vegetarian food options in Latin America was notably absent during my experiences in Britain, Europe, and North America. In first-world countries, it's remarkably simple to locate a variety of vegetarian dining choices. Even Indian restaurants, which seem to be ubiquitous, offer fantastic vegetarian selections.


The same strategy I mentioned earlier remains effective: never hesitate to request customized meals. Restaurants are typically more than willing to accommodate such requests by substituting meat with various vegetarian ingredients.
