Discover Some of the Best Vegan Food Venues in Your City

With borders ever-changing in the current climate, it’s probably best to be prepared for wherever your holiday is able to go. Perhaps a new adventure is on the cards, maybe work means heading to a new city, or perhaps a more personal sea changed has occurred. Whatever the reason, wherever you’re heading, here are some plant-based favourites of ours in Adelaide, Darwin, Hobart and Perth.

Adelaide, South Australia

Allegra Dining Room

Allegra Dining Room is a new and barely spoken of spot in Adelaide. Fine dining for vegans with a 10 item chef’s menu to impress. They showcase local produce and really elevate what we’ve come to expect from vegan dining. The dining room is small and intimate giving you impeccable service. Oh, and they wine match too. Very important, if you ask us.

Staazi & Co

We’ve all seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding - when she tells her new mother-in-law she’s a vegetarian the response is ‘Is okay, I make you lamb’. They said it couldn’t be done: a truly authentic tasting Greek yiros that happens to be vegan. Well, Staazi & Co have mastered it. Not just yiros, but a whole vegan Greek menu. They’ve upgraded their travelling food truck to a bricks and mortar business right in the city. And we couldn’t be happier.

Darwin, Northern Territory

Ebb & Flow

There aren’t a lot of fully vegan venues in Darwin, but Ebb & Flow is one of them. Go for the sunset menu and enjoy what this place is really about. The Tofish and Chips add to the marina vibes or you can go all out with the Portobello Linguine. There’s a small breakfast menu too, if you’re more of a sunrise type of person. Whatever the time of day, you’ll drift off to a tropical paradise with their great music selection and comfy white lounge chairs.


Chow! is one of the top-rated places for vegan options. Although this Vietnamese restaurant does still serve meat, the plant-based options are super delicious. There’s even a vegan banquet (it’s not actually listed on the menu, so be sure to ask). The laksa alone is outstanding but we’re a sucker for a great Pad Thai, too. Sip on a whole coconut and pretend you’re in the bustling streets of Hoi An.

Sweet Brew & Co

Sweet Brew & Co is another spot with great vegan options, or dishes that can be made vegan. The out of this world coffee is what you really show up for, but you’ll stay for the all-day brunch and love things like the ‘Beets Me’ or the ‘First Homeowner 2.0’, aka fancy pants smashed avo. It has a stunning monochrome aesthetic making it perfect for the ‘gram if you’re that way inclined.

Hobart, Tasmania

Straight Up Coffee and Food

An unusual one in that most people choose a plant-based lifestyle but, having a dietary intolerance or requirement on top of this can really make dining out difficult. Not at this little spot. The entire menu at Straight Up Coffee and Food is gluten free and vegetarian with the additional possibility of turning every dish vegan. Talk about inclusive.

Veg Bar

Light, bright and gorgeous, Veg Bar is the perfect Instagrammable eatery. If you want to keep it healthy but can’t decide on a cuisine this is the spot for you. There are burgers, wraps, gyros, bowls, curries, stir-fries and some epic smoothies. There’s also a great selection of beer, wine, cocktails and coffee. People love this place so much they’re even buying merch there too. The 80’s inspired designs say ‘cool to be kind’ and ‘eat your veg’.

Bury Me Standing

Bury Me Standing is vegan bagel heaven. We’re talking cashew cream schmears galore. Schmears with pineapple. Schmears with jalapeño. Garlic schmear. The bagels are made in the traditional way (boiled then baked) thanks to the owner’s American upbringing. The sweet treats are also to die for. Be sure not to miss the signature ‘bakkas’, which is fried brioche tossed in cinnamon sugar.

Perth, Western Australia

Ramen Ichiraku

A vegan take on karaage chicken will often draw the masses (especially when it’s THIS good) but the most famous dish here is the shoyu truffle ramen. The food at Ramen Ichiraku isn’t entirely vegan but there is a very extensive vegan menu. So everyone at the table can find something to fall in love with.

Annalakshmi on the Swan

One to feed your tummy and your soul. Annalakshmi on the Swan is another institution with a not-for-profit focus. Here you pay what you feel for their takeaway menu, to the volunteer staff. The views are stunning and theirand, their curries, thali plates and other amazing dishes come to just $15pp to dine in. The recipes have been passed down through family generations, so you just know you’ll be fully satisfied when you leave.

Ten Acre Block

hank goodness this pop up was so popular they decided to keep the doors open. They use indigenous, local ingredients with a focus on sustainability. This means the Ten Acre Block team source a lot of imperfect produce to save it from going to waste. But you’d never know that when the food hits your plate. Yes, it’s attached to a hotel but don’t let that deter you from this adventurous 5- course dining experience. The carrot tartare is a real summer favourite.

We know there are plenty more spots to be had, but these are just a few of our faves. Of course, we think it’s best each is paired with a glass of The Vegan Wine Project. And if the waiter doesn’t have it on hand? Tell them to give us a call. We’d love to help them out.
