Catering to its masses of vegetarians and vegans, Melbourne is not short on plant-centric restaurants and dishes. No longer only faced with options of pumpkin soup, zucchini fritters and spinach and ricotta cannelloni, herbivores are now offered game-changing, innovative dishes. EatClub has plenty of restaurants with vegan and vegetarian dishes (that aren’t just stodgy pastas) for those who avoid meat and animal products. Ethical, versatile and super-nutritious, vegetables are as hot as potatoes right now. Here is a list of EatClub’s favourite vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Melbourne and their deals:
Madame K’s Vegetarian
Brunswick Street in Fitzroy is full of options for veggie-lovers, but this Thai restaurant is an undisputed favourite. Madame K’s Vegetarian serves dishes such as BBQ Duck, Crispy Prawn and Lamb Sliders that are somehow vegan.

Home to vegan eggs, much use of matcha and plenty of elixirs and plant protein powders, Matcha Mylkbar has a mission to ‘help the earth survive so that you can thrive’. This St Kilda plant-based cafe also has a commendable smoothie list full of puns. Respect.
