There’s been a steady increase in the number of people changing to the vegan lifestyle. If you are one of them, here is the best vegan food in Brisbane. With many more celebrities making the big switch from animal products, the growth in vegan food places has offered many more locals and visitors a place to enjoy their choice meals. There are benefits of changing to the vegan lifestyle, many of which you can experience at the vegan restaurants. These establishments are also welcome for those who would like to take on a new challenge during their travels.
Kuan Yin Teahouse is one of the most eclectic vegan houses in Brisbane, and not just because the vegan food is great, but because you would never know, from a simple glance that the foods are vegan. The Teahouse takes pride in serving imitation dishes whose presentation and taste mimics that of meat. Sample the Peking duck rolls, or go oriental with the Taiwanese fried chicken.
Kuan Yin Teahouse – 198 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley (07) 3252 4557
Fundies is a trendy vegan café nestled in Paddington, and is best known for its delicious tofus. From the outside, it is easy to discredit this simple café since the exterior is not as swanky as one would expect. The tasty tofus however, make up for what the restaurant lacks in its exterior. The best thing about this café perhaps, is the fact that you can also purchase vegan supplies.
Fundies – 219 Given Terrace Paddington 4064 (07) 3368 1855
