Perth may not be best known for its vegan fare – but perhaps it should be! Here are just a few of PETA’s favourite haunts:
The vegan Mexican goodness at Zambrero includes burritos, hard and soft tacos, nachos and quesadillas. Best of all, each time you enjoy a burrito, not only are no animals harmed, a plate of food is also donated to someone in need through the “Plate 4 Plate” program.
Choose from any of six veggie burgers that can all be “veganised”, vegan all-day breakfast options, or the “make your own salad and sandwich” bar. The salad bar is a vegan dream, with everything from potato salad to couscous and roasted vegetables on offer.
Beautiful Indian curries are accompanied by various types of rice, dosas and sambar, and the restaurant directly overlooks the Swan River. Pay what you think it is worth or what you can afford, and all proceeds to go help the less fortunate in India.
The three “Figs”, all in gorgeous beachside locations, have extensive, tasty and creative vegan meals, and their staff is always happy to “veganise” any of the vegetarian dishes whenever possible. There is also a dedicated weekly “Vego” night with live music!
Delicious chickpea, pumpkin and tempeh burgers are on offer, with a plethora of garnishes and sides to boot. The freshly squeezed juices are a winner, too.
The PAWS snack bar provides hot food and raw food as well as delicious vegan desserts. The kitchen is fully vegan, so you are spoilt for choice! PAWS is a tasty, healthy and affordable lunch option, and you can do some cruelty-free shopping in the adjoining store after you’ve eaten.
Aisuru Sushi boasts a whole page of vegan items on its menu, ranging from teriyaki tofu to many different sushi rolls, all made right in front of your eyes as you sit at the sushi bar.
Loving Hut offers a wide variety of hot food and salad options – and some raw options, too. Just make sure you save some room for the delicious vegan desserts!
Staff at this hidden gem are always happy to accommodate vegans. With dishes such as pad Thai and mee goreng on offer, you can’t go wrong. The vegetables are fresh, the food is scrumptious and the serving sizes are huge. Enjoy!
Choose from a range of hot meals, roast vegetable lasagne and veggie patties. Still hungry? Every dish can be ordered with a filling salad on the side. Muffins, scones and cakes are also available if you still aren’t full!
