Enmore Road has carved out a solid reputation as a veg-friendly food destination and Cairo Takeaway easily fits the bill. The Egyptian diner assembles one of the best vegetarian mixed plates in town featuring crisp, spiced cauliflower florets, dark green falafel, a little fattoush salad, Pantone-coloured pickles, tahini and soft folds of flatbread. We should mention, in spite of the name you can eat in at Cairo Takeaway, and it’s always a good time.
Long gone are the days when mushroom risotto was the only option on Sydney menus for vegetarians. Okay, so a few places are still championing that veggo staple, but if you know where to go you need never set eyes on it again. Not all of these restaurants are exclusively vegetarian, but everyone on this list is serving the kind of exciting, delicious vegetable-based fare that will make you reconsider meat in favour of a whole head of cauliflower, a perfect pizza or a totally plant-based degustation.
