Vegans of the west will be happy to hear that the—until recently—Eastside (and Inner Westside) burger joint is headed to Parra. This is the place to take your meat-loving friends if you want to trick them, because while the menu describes the ‘meat’ as plant-based throughout, it is very much vegan. Our top pick is the classic cheeseburger, made with plant-based beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, tomato relish and mustard aioli.
It all sounds a bit weird but we can confirm that this place is the real deal—or as real as a vegan burger can be, for sure. We’ve even been known to send chefs here, who have been (begrudgingly) really damn impressed. Grab a serve of ref friend (tangy seasoned thick cut beer-battered fries with aioli) and a choc-banana coconut shake while you’re there, because you’d be crazy to go easy here.
There is no date set for the opening, but stay tuned.
