Vegan, Vegetarian or otherwise, you’re sure to enjoy the diverse flavours from these Auckland establishments. In all my travels, Auckland is still one of my favourite destinations to indulge in plant-based cuisine and there’s certainly no shortage of it here.
The Garden Shed | Mt Eden
Set in an airy green atmosphere with ladders suspended from the ceiling, it’s a funky kind of Alice in the potting shed scene. Day or night you’ll find this place alight with cocktails and cheese boards galore.
The Must-Try: Freshly baked Pumpkin Pot Bread & Spiced Ginger Beer.
Lord of the Fries | Britomart
A relative newcomer on the scene in Auckland, they’ve wasted no time gaining the hearts and stomachs of locals. Look no further, this is your all vegan / vegetarian fast food joint.
The Must-Try: Kumara Fries
Mukunda’s | K’ Road
When I lived in Auckland every second Wednesday, my Boyfriend and I would look forward to a cheeky after work drink then straight up the hill to K’ Road for this delicious feast. Nothing is better (or cheaper) than Mukundas ‘Meal 1’ after an action packed day. On my recent visit, I overhead another customer telling her daughter she used eat at it’s former location when she was at University. One meal at Mukundas is never enough!
Mondays Wholefoods | Kingsland
The place to go for a secluded garden, interesting twists on popular dishes and very Instagrammable flat lays.
Raw Power | City
If you feel like the previous few suggestions have led you to pack on a little travel weight, not to worry, I’ve got you covered with possibly the most deliciously healthy salad bar you’ll come across. Don’t be nervous to nip up those stairs, because what awaits you is a smorgasbord of options to stack on your plate.
Renkon | City
Renkon basically has one vege option on the menu, but they needn’t have any more. Choose your sauce, then await the bowl of rice, vegetable and tofu goodness coming your way.
