Today, 1 October, is World Vegetarian Day and to celebrate, I wanted to share with you some great places to get a veg feed in Sydney.
I’m often asked by readers for veg suggestions around town so I’ve compiled some of my favourite eateries and others I’ve been meaning to visit. Not all joints are fully veg but have excellent veg options. This is by no means a comprehensive list but it’s certainly a good start! So whether you’re visiting Sydney or you’re a local, these veg eats will have you sorted.
Yellow in Potts Point is a new veg restaurant that received a lot of hype in the press when it opened, and all the photos of their dishes look beautiful. This would be a good place to have a special meal.
Lentil as Anything in Newtown is a not-for-profit organisation, open for dinner or weekend brunch. As these kind folks are not in it for the cash, they have a ‘pay what you feel’ system which sounds like a great concept.
Earth to Table in Bondi Junction covers all the bases with raw, vegan, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free food. There’s lots on offer including all day breakfast, salads, zucchini pastas and smoothies.
Sadhana Kitchen offers raw and gluten-free eats at Enmore and Bondi Beach. The indulgent desserts are not to be missed. If you’re feeling fancy, check out an afternoon high tea or one of the raw regular 7 course vegan degustation dinners.
Bliss & Chips is Newtown is just like traditional fish and chip shop except everything on the menu is plant-based and gluten-free. I can vouch for the tasty ‘seafood pack’ at this world first vegan fish and chip shop.
Lord of the Fries has stores in Sydney and Parramatta who make veg burgers, hot dogs and famous fries. They also have great sauces and lots of vegan options. These small joints are best for take away.
Veggie Patch Diner is a vegetarian food truck that often pops up at events and festivals around the city.
What are your favourite local eats? I’d love to hear what’s good in your town so I’ve got some tips if I’m in ever in your ‘hood!
