Forget the days of a sad bowl of chips, or a boring plain salad because Brisbane is undergoing a serious vegan foodie boom. Whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian or just a little bit adventurous when it comes to food, here are five plant-based foodie spots that you need to check out.
Yavanna is the newest kid on the veggie block, having just opened in Paddington recently. This entirely plant-based restaurant and bar has an impressive menu, mostly using seitan to create unbelievable dishes. Yavanna is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and serves up steaks, ribs, calamari, schnitzels, ‘beef’ burgers, omelettes and more.
If you love a raw treat or two, chances are you are a fan of Nutri Hitt. Did you know though, that Nutri Hitt also have an all-day breakfast menu at their Hamilton store? Their breakfast menu ranges from ‘eggs’ benny, to a loaded bun filled with ‘tuna’ to a savoury waffle decked high with vegan mac and cheese. We are getting hungry just thinking about it!
What could be better than vegan food and games? At Netherworld in the Valley, you can try your hand at old-school arcade games, while indulging in hot dogs, meatballs, burgers, pizza waffles and more. What makes Netherworld so special, is that all items on the menu are vegan unless modified otherwise, instead of the other way around!
When it comes to plant-based breakfast, Dicki’s is a must-visit in our books! Dicki’s only opened earlier this year in New Farm but it already has a loyal following. If you are a scrambled tofu fan, you can find it here. A special mention must go to their E.L.T. (eggplant, lettuce and tomato) and corncakes, however!
If you are a seasoned veggie, you will be well aware of Green Edge in Windsor. Not only is Green Edge an amazing place to shop vegan, but the cafe is also a great place to grab a bit to eat. Green Edge is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has something for everyone on the menu. They even have a Bacon and Egg MocMuffin!
