Vegetarian eating doesn’t have to be hard; it’s all about making friends with salad, reducing animal cruelty, and as it turns out, eating some delicious AF vegetarian meals in Brisbane.
Whether you’re a ‘meat-free Mondays’ kind of devotee or a devout vegetarian, check out our picks of the best vegetarian meals in Brisbane.
Breakfast Burrito Bowl At Scout
A vego lovers leafy dream, the menu at Scout has a tonne of vegetarian options for those who want to hit mass nutrient levels from the get-go. With most of the menu either already meat-free or offering a ‘no messing around’ vego alternative, we’re big fans of their halloumi, pomegranate and quinoa brekky burrito bowl.
Roasted Cauliflower, Date & Parsley Salad At Botanica
Red Hill & Teneriffe
Yeah yeah, we get that salad for vegetarians is hardly a revolutionary suggestion. Alas, hear us out, the delicious Botanica Real Food salad institution was built on a completely vegetarian foundation. That means none of their many salad variations will ever contain meat and same goes for their quiches, soups (and cupcakes too)! If you’re looking for one of the best vegetarian meals in Brisbane, you’re in the right spot.
Mushroom Burger At Ben’s Burgers
Fortitude Valley & West End
Just because you’re not keen on meat doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the Ben’s Burgers fun! Hit up their mushroom burger which includes Swiss cheese, parmesan pickles and, obvs, their iconic brioche buns. And don’t forget about the side of fries!
Halloumi Hot Dog At Bruno’s Bne
A newcomer on the southside, Bruno’s Bne has got quite the vego surprise hiding on the menu with their halloumi hot dog! Not only will you be in for a tasty veggie meal but if you nab a seat on their back deck, you’ll also score optimal ambience while overlooking the park. Win win.
Falafel Pita At Naïm
Falafel balls are a vegetarian’s happy place; protein-y, carb-y, and full of veggies—these babies have got it all. Head to the gorgeous Naim (previously known as Shouk Café) in Paddington for some of the most incredible Middle Eastern fare you’ll try in town, but most importantly for their falafel pita. Life. Made.
Tofu Wrap At Wrapture
The largely word-of-mouth West End wonder, Wrapture has got a whole section on the menu dedicated to their vegetarian wraps. Ranging from halloumi to falafel to tofu, we can assure you that any vegetarian wrap(ture) you opt for is going to hit the spot.
Margherita Pizza At Pizzeria Violetta
Kenmore, Paddington & Wilston
Both vegetarians and non-vegos alike will often opt for a classic margherita pizza at Pizzeria Violetta. Why’s that? The bases here are seriously amazing; you don’t really want too many toppings competing with it. Head to any of their locations to find out what we mean...
Genovese Pesto Gnocchi At Gnocchi Gnocchi Brothers
What could be more vegetarian friendly than a pasta made of potato?! Gnocchi Gnocchi have got a few incredible vegetarian options to choose from but we think the Genovese basil pesto with a side of sourdough looks like a pretty decent meat-free option to us.
Yoga Flame Burger At Super Combo
Green, clean eating be damned, sometimes we all just need a big, juicy burger to tuck in to! But rest assured my veggie friends, the team at Super Combo have got your back; the Yoga Flame is all spiced corn hash patty, capsicum relish, roast green pepper chimichurri drizzled in mint yoghurt. Delish.
Loaded Doughnut Fries At The Doughnut Bar
Eat Street Northshore
We’ve already waxed lyrical about this incredible dessert mash up here, so if you haven’t tried these incredibly fluffy, hand-cut doughnut fries from The Doughnut Bar then you’re missing out. Coated in toasted marshmallows, smashed Oreos and melted chocolate, life just doesn’t really get much better than this.
