Vegan Food Guide to Sapa Vietnam

Finding vegan food in Sapa Vietnam is easier than you think with a diverse range of vegan and vegetarian friendly cafes and restaurants

Nestled in the stunning landscapes of northern Vietnam, six hours by bus from Hanoi and close to the Chinese border, Sapa not only captivates you with its unique scenery but also excites taste buds with many plant based options.

Even if your accommodation is in the Muong Hoa Valley on the outskirts of Sapa, you’ll find restaurants with vegan friendly options nearby.

Try traditional Vietnamese dishes with a vegan twist like Banh Mi, Pho and Bun Cha to other cuisines like pancakes, fettuccine alfredo and pumpkin soup.

Always check out Happy Cow before you travel! I make sure to look on Google Maps too and type in “vegan” to see what pops up because not all restaurants are accepted on Happy Cow so this is a great option to find other vegan friendly restaurants
