People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) Asia has listed Singapore as Asia’s second most vegan-friendly city for its lively vegan food scene.

From dairy-free ice creams to meatless burgers, Singapore offers a wide range of choice to vegans.

Notable vegan eateries highlighted by Peta in Singapore included VeganBurg, a burger joint that serves up 'meat' patties made of vegan ingredients, and Genesis Vegan Restaurant, which prepares popular local Chinese style dishes like 'fish head' vermicelli and 'chicken' rice.

Loving Hut on Joo Chiat Road is another popular hotspot among Vegan food hunters and vegetarians, arguably with one of the widest range of cuisines on the menu. Their dishes include the Nyonya Laksa, Aglio e Olio, Almond Crumb Fillet, Burgers Alfredo Shrooms Crepe and so on.

Taipei, the capital of Taiwan tops Peta's list of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Cities in Asia.

Chiang Mai has been ranked third, while Makati, a city in the Philippines, and Bangalore, India has been rounded up the top five.

The rankings were judged by an expert panel of Peta Asia staff who travelled all over the region to sample vegan restaurants and street-food.

This has happened for the first time that the organisation has come up with an Asian version of its ranking of vegan-friendly cities.

In 2013, PETA published its first list of the most vegan-friendly cities in the world with Austin, Texas, in the US topping the charts. This year, another American city, Portland, Oregon, was ranked as the world’s most vegan-friendly city.
