Eating vegan doesn’t always mean green smoothies and salad sandwiches (although they have their place), and the Sydney vegan restaurant cultures has expanded significantly over the past few years to accommodate all your cravings.
Not that long ago, we shared some hacks on how to make your favourite fast foods vegan-friendly, and we’re still cheering at the fact that Domino’s has introduced a vegan cheese. Now, our vegan friends, plant-life is about to get a whole lot sweeter.
Read on as we pinned down some of our favourite vegan locations in Sydney so that you can enjoy all that quality food has to offer.
A gem of a restaurant serving up vegan yum cha from 11am where you can dine in the shade of the fig trees if you prefer. Try the barbecue pork buns, the Peking duck pancakes and definitely finish with their puffy passion fruit donuts.
A traditional pizzeria turned completely vegan must-try, you’ll find Gigi’s with a line out the door any day of the week. All pizzas have an authentically thin crust, so try the Patate or the Funghi e Radicchio and finish with a serve of their tiramisu.
If you’re hankering for a burger fix, look no further. Choose from the best fish burger or layer it up with ‘bacon’ and a ‘beef patty’, and don’t forget to try the kumera fries!
Serving up a bountiful menu of vegan Vietnamese, you can find all your favourites here (like a generous vermicelli noodle salad with faux pork spring rolls). If you dine earlier in the evening, you might just make it in time to get a serve of their deep fried ice cream before they sell out.
The team at MAKER has gone above and beyond to create a superb menu of toasties, rolls, pastries and pancakes. Try their bacon and egg roll with an iced chai and make sure to save room for something in their pastry cabinet to take with you.
The ideal breakfast, brunch or lunch location, Gathered Kitchen will satisfy your sweet tooth with their incredible homemade chocolate and almond croissants, cruffins, pancakes and waffles, balanced out with a truly impressive avocado smash.
