Citysearch Introduces VeggieThing for Vegan Gourmands

Sunday, May 10, 2009 - 20:38

Discover the Country's Best Meatless Eats!

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Citysearch, a leading online local guide and an operating business of IAC , today introduces VeggieThing, a new lookbook blog to celebrate the country's most unique vegan dishes like Mock Duck Spring Rolls, Porcini-Crusted Tofu Benedict, Vegan Doughnuts, Tofu Cheesecake and Black Sesame Sweet Tofu.



"VeggieThing is really a forum for happy herbivores to meet and share their favorite foods with each other," said Robert Moritz, VP of Content, Citysearch. "It's also a place for non-vegans to come and discover the growing array of delicious meatless dishes that more and more restaurants around the country are adding to their menus."

Whether its vegan afternoon tea in Chicago or jackfruit "carnitas" tacos in Los Angeles, vegans unite at VeggieThing with a common goal: scour local neighborhood restaurants across the country to find, photograph and submit the yummiest animal-friendly foods. The photos are reviewed by the "VeggieThing Dictators" -- Citysearch editors and foodie bloggers who provide commentary on their favorite submissions. Users can search by city and cuisine and share their favorites with friends.

VeggieThing is the newest blog launch in a series from Citysearch of consumer trend lookbooks. The first blog, MopShots, debuted in February highlighting the best hair salons and styles from across the country. LuckyToes -- all about shoes -- launched in March, followed by 3BuckBites (featuring the best gourmet cheap eats in US cities) and, a visual guide for the sweet tooth obsessed!
