The veggie food scene in Penang is ever growing and it’s always exciting to see new vegetarian eateries in Penang opening. A survey was posted on the Penang Vegetarians Facebook group to ask members what their favourite vegetarian eateries were in 2015. 

There were just three questions. The first question asked was “Are you a vegetarian?” The majority of respondents were vegetarian (73%), non-vegetarians (15%) and 12% saying they were thinking about becoming vegetarian. It’s nice to know that non-vegetarians enjoy eating at vegetarian restaurants.

The second question asked was “How often do you eat out at a vegetarian eatery?” Given that eating out is huge part of Malaysian culture, the results were not surprising. 35% said that they ate out three to five times a week, 30% every day, 27% once a week and 8% said they rarely ate out.

The third and main question was “What is your favourite vegetarian eatery?”. The list consisted of vegetarian eateries that people had indicated were their favourites in a post on Penang Vegetarians Facebook page. There was also the option to add others not already mentioned.
