The Economist is all excited by the rise in self-identified meat-eschewers in Mongolia today.

The nascent trend for eschewing meat is part of Mongolia’s broader shift towards a more urbanised, international society. Last month the UB Post, a Mongolian newspaper, estimated there were 2,500 vegans in the country. Vegetarians may number above 30,000, according to other reports.

There are “several” Loving Huts in the capital, Ulaanbaatar, or at least one according to Loving Hut. You can find more evidence on Flickr.
