PETA ranked San Francisco seventh among the most vegetarian- and vegan-friendly cities in the meat-tastic U.S. of A.

Ahead of us are Washington D.C., and Albuquerque. Yes, Albuquerque. Strange considering not too many cities have earned the scorn of Anthony Bourdain for its vegan stereotypes and not too many cities have taken a stand for animals by considering a ban on pet sales.

A PETA spokeswoman told SF Gate that San Francisco shouldn't feel so bad.

"Seventh is still pretty good," Amanda Fortino told the paper. "San Francisco has been great for animals all-around. You shouldn't feel bad for seventh place."

Yea after all, we are home to the best damn vegan meatball around.
