    Default Vegan friendly restaurants in Australia

    I thought it would be a good idea to post our favourite restaurants that are vegan/vegetarian or veg friendly, so that when we are stuck for places to eat, or someone is travelling, they can check out our recommendations

    In Melbourne, I recommend:
    *The Vegie Bar
    380 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
    The Vegie Bar has something for everyone - pizza, burgers, curries, stir-fries etc... My favourite dishes have been:
    - Chickpea dhal - chickpea and lentil dhal served with roti and brown rice
    - Moroccan pizza - hummus and tomato base topped with eggplant, pumpkin, capsicum and mushrooms, sprinkled with sesame seeds
    - Mostly Greens - stir-fry with asian greens and tempeh (in a choice of tamari or tahini sauce) with brown rice
    - Rice Balls - sort of like falafel balls - they come with satay sauce, but I hate satay, so I got it plain
    - Lentil burger

    *Organically Grown
    Glenferrie Road, Malvern
    Organically Grown is a cafe/healthfood store that sells all organic:
    - pies/pastries (hand-made, low fat, wholemeal organic sourdough pastry by Vegetable Creations). Vegan varieties include: plain vegetable pie, curried vegetable pie, spinach and potato roll, pumpkin and tofu pie, mushroom and tofu pie, dal pie.
    - rice balls, curried potato balls
    - soups/salads
    - freshly squeezed juices
    - wheatgrass

    *Vegetarian Nirvana Cafe
    486 Bridge Road, Richmond
    See: www.nirvanacafe.com
    Personally, I loved:
    - Channe
    But I had to ask for more chilli!!!!

    I also forgot to mention, across the street from the Vegie Bar, is a place called Trampoline. It is an ice cream shop that has VEGAN SORBET - the most delicious vegan sorbet too!!!!

    Likewise, on Acland Street, St Kilda is another ice cream shop with vegan sorbet. It is called Seven Apples. I haven't been there before but I went in and asked after I discovered that Trampoline was vegan (I thought that there was hope after all!!!)

    *Vegetarian Orgasm
    61 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy

    The main meals at the Veg Orgasm were nothing to rave about, but their desserts are another story!!

    The main meals were more for people who like meat, but don't want to eat it, for example 'chicken' nuggets and 'chicken' parmigana were on the menu. They make their own vegan cheese, which is impressive though

    Desserts were unbelievable - donuts, cake and ice cream galore!!!!

    In Sydney, there are two 100 percent vegan restaurants, Green Gourmet. The brother and sister who run the restaurants, and the vegan grocery store adjoining the one at Newtown, are lovely people, and the food is delicious. The other Green Gourmet is at St Leonards. Phone numbers are 02-9519 5330, and 02-9439 6533.

    Pronto Bronto's Vegetarian Fast Food will be opening in around 4 weeks at 95 Smith Street, Fitzroy. Apparently it will all be vegan, with the exception of dairy milk being offered for coffee.

    Spud Bar - Blessington Street St Kilda, Melbourne

    - For $6, you get this GIGANTIC baked potato, a choice of chilli beans or lentil dhal and any other topping you want! It is definately not gourmet food (I hate gourmet food), but it is very very tasty, filling, quick and cheap. You can also watch TV in the back corner!!!

    Thumbs up Great thread idea

    Here's a list for Adelaide:

    *D-Tox Me, on hindley street -- expensive and not vego, but organic!
    *The Clearlight, on Rundle st -- wholefoods and takeaway
    *Joy Discovery, next door to clearlight -- run by hare krishnas!
    *Sprouts , on Hindmarsh sq. --- veg*n restaurant
    *Bliss, on Compton st, just across from the central markets -- very cute place
    *Quiet Waters, on hindley -- lebanese restaurant
    *Foods for Life, Rundle Mall --- health food store with great takeaway and wholefoods
    *Drift cafe, Morphett St, just around the corner from the markets --- my favourite cafe in the world.

    Now you see, Adelaide isn't so scary and right-wing afterall

    You'd have a job getting a vegan meal at the first three on your list. Don't know about the others, but Quiet Waters sounds a bit suss, and as for a health food store, well they're rarely vegan. I lived in Adelaide for a couple of years, and found it difficult to find anywhere decent, though I used to go with my mother and sister to some hotel or other that had a smorgasbord, which offered a good variety of foods.

    Seen the new vegetarian website in SA at http://www.vegetarianaction.org.au ?

    Haven't been to Quiet waters myself, but have heard good things from other veg*n friends. The health food store in the mall I will support 100% as having PLENTY of vegan options. And good ones, too. D-tox me I dont actually like very much, but they do have vegan food there, although $8 for celery sticks is a bit much if u ask me. There are also lots of other places in the burbs - u can see the whole list on the vegetarian action site. Thanks for the plug btw

    And you're probably better off for it, eve!
    i've only been here 3 years and it's already doing my head in! Nah, actually it is getting better, slowly... however it's also getting worse in many ways. But that's a thread for a whole other forum!

    Have you heard the Tripod song, "Adelaide's OK" ?

    "We're smoothing out the problems,
    As we go in Adelaide.
    We're scaling down the boringness,
    In an understated way."

    Gotta love this city

    LOL - it's not that bad - i've been here going onto ten years now and it really grows on you - the beautiful hills, the often minimally inhabited stretches of white beach, the friendly people, the general feeling of safety. They say that it's a great place to bring up kids - I would have to agree from observation, but still think that more could be done to provide interest for kids and teens.

    We have some rippa festivals here - Feast is on at the moment, WOMADELAIDE is on in March next year and if you have the cash, The Ring Cycle is on.

    Sometimes it is just a matter of keeping an eye out for what is going on and it depends on what you are used to. I love Melbourne myself but have not lived there - only visited regularly.

    Adelaide people are also generous; their support for Animal Lib here is greater than in most if not all the other states - despite the size of our population.

    I agree we do have dibs on the best festivals. WOMAD is at the top of my list Still wouldn't want to stay here any longer than needed, tho!

    But now I'm diverting from the original topic. Adelaide also has excellent markets for vegan grocery shopping. Chinatown is fantastic as are the Junction markets. Then again, I don't have a helluva lot to compare with.


    Btw, veganblue, was that ALSA you were referring to? I feel so bad i haven't done any volunteering for them yet since joining That's a project for these summer holidays I reckon!

    A great place to bring up kids? Isn't it the Aussie city with the worst record for murders of children? Plus the record numbers of paedophiles doing their worst? And isn't Adelaide where they had those serial killers with the 'bodies in the barrels'? The worst part about Adelaide, that I remember, was the hot winds!

    The bodies in the barrels happened in Snowtown. But yer on the right track. Actually South Aus in general is world-reknowned for its bizarre murders! We've had more than our fair share of strange happenings (watch tonight's news if u want proof!). But we definetely don't have as many "regular" murders as, say, Sydney or Melbourne. That paedophilia one is news to me tho.

    This is a morbid conversation...

    It was hot and windy today, eve! I love it myself!

    BE CAREFUL OF THE VEGIE BAR!!!! It seems as though they have fish stock on their premises - so just ask if you suspect that something may contain something of this kind

    A new vegan cafe opened a few months ago here in Brisbane and I'm addicted! It's The Forest in West End and their Big Breakfast and fresh juices are to die for!! We also have a veg place in Fortitude Valley called Veg Out, but I haven't been there in quite a few years.... Aside from breakfast at Forest, I don't really go out to eat too much. It's just too much like hard work, so I'd rather have meals at home so that I know exactly what I'm getting. That doesn't stop me going out for a vegan beer from time to time though

    Default Isn't there anyone from Sydney here?

    Iv'e been living here for 3 months now, and it has a lot of veggie places.
    the place where I work is a health food store, and they have a small cafe with a nice variety of vegan delights. I'm talking, of course, about "Macro Whollfoods" in Bondi Junction, (they are actually opening a new branch in Crows Nest a few days from now). The muffins are yummy, the "tofu-burger" is divine, and a lot of other stuff is just delicious and vegan as well. That's it for now... Have fun!

    Soulmama is fresh and delicious - I highly recommend it. It is vegetarian but mostly vegan. It is located at the St Kilda Sea Baths - Jacka Ave, St Kilda - near Acland Street and Fitzroy St.

    I tried Seven Apples sorbet last night too - no where near as good as Trampoline

    I went to Pronto Brontos for lunch today. I didn't try any of the burgers or anything, but I got this MASSIVE panini roll filled with hummus, mesclun salad leaves, sundried tomato, marinated eggplant and kalamata olives for $5.90. I will be going back there to try their burgers and fries....very yummy

    Mother Chu's Vegetarian Kitchen is in Pitt St, Sydney, and utterly fantastic. It is 100% vegan.

    Bodhi Cafe Under Central Station, on Eddie Ave, Sydney. 99% vegan. Not too bad, has a fast food take away bar. They use and sell cow milk though. This is a new thing, they used to be 100% vegan. Their cakes and mains are vegan too.

    Blue ???? Can't remember the name right now, I'll post it later, but FANTASITC mostly vegan (uses honey) restaurant in Chinatown, Sydney. Mmmmm.....

    Organic yiros, on Rundle St Adelaide! They are not vegan but they cater sensitively to vegans and have wonderful food - three types of pita with fresh organic fillings. I had some sort of marinated tofu that was heated seperately and had kalamata olives, fresh tomato and avocado - to name a few of the yum ingredients.

    I feel that it is really worthwhile to support the businesses that really make an effort to cater to vegan needs, even if they do have some animal products.

    There is one place in Melbourne if you want some serious fun vegan food - Pronto Brontos. Robert (my omnivore boyfriend) and I went there for dinner tonight and now we are unable to move LOL . We each had:
    - a burger
    - fries
    - salad
    - 1/2 mini chocolate mud cake
    - 1/2 a blueberry muffin
    - 2 chocolate chip cookies
    I have not had food like that since being vegan. It was truly amazing. The choc cake and cookies were unbelievable! I have been DYING for cookies for the whole time I have been vegan and now my prayers have been answered. I put in a request for the making of white chocolate cookies...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! *drools eventhough still disgustingly full!

    Roxy, if there is any reason to come to Melbourne, this is it!

    So how do you feel today after stuffing yourselves with all that food made with fat and sugar (apart from the salad)? Just watch out Banana, now that you've found Pronto Brontos, that you don't put on too much weight!

    LOL Eve!!!! I shared all that stuff with my boyfriend (hence the 1/2 stuff) and I was so sick in the middle of the night . I don't think I will be going there too often anyway - it isn't exactly close. I just got all excited coz I haven't had stuff like that for four years!!! My sweet tooth is overly satisfied for a long time now!!!!

    I am actually allergic to the caffiene in chocolate, which is why I was so sick in the middle of the night

    Thumbs up Organic yiros

    I have to have to give a plug for the new organic yiros bar on Rundle Street in Adelaide. They are very very vegan friendly, they have tofu, and falafel choices as the main filler. The bread is made on the spot, there is a separate preparation area for non-meat orders, and you can pick whatever fillings and sauces you like, from zucchinis, to mushrooms, to spinach, and the good old lettuce tomato tabouli, and every single thing in the store is certified organic, including the soft drinks!
    I ate there last week and it was a heavenly experience. Because the food is so natural, and the way nature intended, it made my body feel amazing, like how it should feel if I was to eat 100% organic everyday for every meal. And I was floating on this strange cloud!
    And then I ate the Sweet wrap, which is like a pancakey type bread, filled with the most delectable fruits, nuts, etc. Wow that was something else.
    Anyway, if anyone reading this lives in Adelaide I ask that you support this business, as places like these often close down in 6 months in Adelaide because no one gives it a go. I know the place serves meat and to a very lesser extent dairy, but how many businesses respect vegetarians and vegans enough to have a separate preparation area, and to make every tiny thing organic (even their uniforms are made from organic hemp grown in Nepal). I think they're wonderful, their food is amazing and I just wanted to spread the word!!!!

    Bodhi is closed now (it's some sort of noodle bar). Before they had the big renovation they sold spinach and tofu pastries that were amazing. I never managed to get the name of the company that made them (I think they're in Melbourne), and I could never recreate them very well myself.
    They also had a variety of other vegan pastires and pies. But once they redid the interior of the shop, they also altered their menu quite a bit and it was never the same.

    So it seems everyone from Adelaide on here is talking about the Organic yiros bar on Rundle Street.... well I finally went there last night! And, to be honest, while it was EXTREMELY yummy... I don't think I'll return too often. It was very expensive for what it was ($9 for a 7" tofu wrap) and the gluten-free bread is NOT vegan! It has egg in it! So beware

    However, the tofu and the mushrooms were incredible. The plastic "bin" seats are cute, if a little gawdy, and the staff are very well informed and sensitive.

    end review

    BTW. Drift is still the best veg. cafe in Adelaide IMHO. Spelt pizza night is Friday! You must also try the dutch chocolate/coffee cake. It's a favourite even amongst my non-veg friends. And I have it on good authority that the proprietors are now newly Vegan too! Yay!!!!

    Have to agree - Drift not only make a killer burger, but have great coffee too, fair trade from memory.

    Thanks for the tip regarding the gluten free wrap!

    There are so many vegetarian restaurants in melbourne it's not funny.

    But I am shocked that noone has mentioned "Lentil As Anything" yet (near corner of Blessington and Barkly streets, St. Kilda). I take public transport from North Melbourne just to go there. It is truly the very best and very tastiest food I have ever eaten. Plus it's an anti-capitalist, anti-consumer-society establishment, so it's a "pay what you think your meal was worth" kind of deal. No prices. But mmmmmm the food is so good!

    No vegan's trip to Melbourne could be complete without a visit to Lentil As Anything!

    Also, should anyone be unfortunate enough to be forced to visit Canberra, I suggest Au Lac in Dickson. One of my favourite places to eat.

    New vegan restaurant in Brisbane, West End called The Forest. They are on the main drag, Boundary Rd Ph. (07)38-466-181 Tue-Sun. The only non-vegan thing is real milk in the coffee because they found people wouldn't come in otherwise!

    Hi
    I'm going there tomorrow so I'll let you know. Why don't you go in there and look at the menu? Try something even. I know the head chef, she's very nice, and she just bought my recipe book which is about combining aromatherapy oils with a vegan diet ( http://www.essentialoilcookbook.com) so there may be some interesting changes coming.

    Vegan restaurants need our patronage to survive so please send all your friends.

    Thanks,

    Went last night again (Lentil As Anything). God I love that place.

    The 5 star Japanese chef was in again. So I ordered the pancaky thing starting with O. Can never remember the name. But oh did it taste like heaven...

    Why don't you make it a gathering? Kind of an unofficial vegan meetup...? you never know - heaps of other vegans might turn up hopefully...?

    People don't like me in person.

    We could all come with a laptop and a phone cord?!
