The Best Restaurants for Vegan Food in Perth

Updated 7 months ago


Chefs are embracing vegetables more than ever before. Just look at the proliferation of roasted cauliflower and cabbage on menus across Australia (and the world). From there, going fully vegan is a relatively small step. Butter can be swapped out for coconut oil, cow’s milk for soy milk, and egg whites for aquafaba (the liquid found in cans of chickpeas). Perth doesn’t have many 100 per cent vegan restaurants. Yet a handful of its diners offer dedicated vegan menus from Millbrook Winery to The Seasonal Brewing Co. Others will happily substitute ingredients to bring you a plant-based meal. Here’s a growing list of the best places in Perth to find just that, curated by Broadsheet’s editors.

  • From the grapes to the potatoes, nearly everything is grown on site.

  • A family- and pet-friendly brewery with elevated pub fare (including a separate vegan and vegetarian menu). With 16 taps, 300 seats and a big outdoor area, it caters for any group or occasion.

  • The lengthy menu at this lively Karrinyup Thai eatery packs in street-food classics, a dedicated vegan menu, salads with a kick, fragrant curries and more. And dessert is taken just as seriously.

  • Stop by this laid-back diner for homely dishes from Kuching, the Malaysian city recognised by Unesco for its gastronomy. Many dishes, from the char kway teow to the tomato mee (crispy tomato noodles), can be made vegetarian or vegan.

  • Find one of Perth’s best Indonesian eateries in a major shopping centre. Tuck into their high-definition Indonesian curries, handmade noodles, vegan and vegetarian plates, and spread of Indonesian sweets.

  • This family-run spot champions rice and noodles from western Malaysia, has a strong vegan focus, and makes chrysanthemum and herbal teas in-house.

  • This perky 50-seater is a love letter to Japan’s north – offering deeply flavoured curry (including vegan options) and rice, beer and wine from Hokkaido.
