Until recent days, there was only two restaurants, Green and Dreamer’s Place, offering a decent vegan menu and a vegan shopping section in the city. Last week all the eager vegan fans celebrated the opening of the Kyiv well known and beloved franchise of Vegano Hooligano vegan restaurant in Lviv.
Located in Lviv downtown, Vegano Hooligano Lviv (10, Rymlyanyna street, Lviv) offers relaxed atmosphere and a great selection of dishes that will impress most spoiled vegans. The restaurant in Lviv is the biggest one in the Vegano Hooligano family throughout Ukraine. Other restaurants are located in Kyiv, Odessa and Ivano Frankibsk.
All the dishes on the menu are fully plant-based.
