Choose Veg Each Chooseday! 🥑🥦

If you’ve ever found yourself toying with the idea of eating less meat but don’t know where to start, EatClub’s ‘Choose Veg Chooseday’ is a great way to explore plant-based dishes. Each Tuesday in November you’ll find deals at venues with lots of meat-free options highlighted in green in the app. The deal can be applied to the whole menu, not just the vegan and vegetarian dishes you order. We hope you join us in choosing to ‘go veg’ (at least on Tuesdays!).

You can win a vegetarian cooking class by snapping a picture of you with your meat-free dish and posting it on Instagram. Details on how to enter can be found here

Indian Paradise

149 Alison Road, Randwick

Indian food is so rich and diverse in flavour combinations, so why not enjoy meatless options like daal and spiced paneer dishes? At Indian Paradise, a point of difference is that they use locally-grown ingredients and offer craft beers and a considered wine list.

Contact Bar and Kitchen

88 Crown Street, Woolloomooloo

For cocktails and beautiful, seasonal, meat-free fare, Contact is the perfect place. They want you to be social at your social gathering, so phones are locked away so that you can focus on the amazing hot dishes and chilled creative cocktails.

Shop 2/17 Hickson Road, Dawes Point

Lebanese food is often vegan and vegetarian and it’s so darn tasty (and healthy) that even carnivores come back time and time again for more. Hummus and baba ghanouj are obvious winners, but it’s rude not to enjoy a mezze spread with those Walsh Bay harbour views.

Try meat-free dishes with ‘Choose Veg Chooseday’ each Tuesday in November.
