HappyCow is a website and application founded in 1999 that allows users to find vegetarian, vegan and local plant-based restaurants and cafés around the world. The service includes search filters for stores such as bakeries, juice bars and market vendors and allows users to search for types of food ranging from American, Spanish, Indian, Mexican and Thai. Access is free of charge and users can add additional content onto the online service, such as leaving a review or uploading pictures.
HappyCow uses open data such as geodata and data on global vegan and vegetarian establishments. This can range from information about the menu of a restaurant in Paris to a vegan health food store in Bangkok.
HappyCow is one of the over 380 use cases published on the European Data Portal. If you are aware of another inspiring use case, share your experience and knowledge on different applications and websites using open data with the EDP via mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
