People are choosing plant-based eating for its softer step on the earth, concerns about animal cruelty, and the health benefits of a vegetable-rich diet. Plus, the rise of the flexitarian means you might not be a full-time vegan, but where you can, you opt for more plants on your plate.
Only a few years ago, vegan dining meant a whole lot of pulses and sprouts, but now Sydney is home to plant-based burger shops, classic Italian pizzerias that showcase cheese and meat alternatives, gelato shops that favour coconut bases and a growing contingent of fine diners offering fancy degustations for vegans.
