Time’s are changing! A few years back sorting out a place to get a vegan dinner was a task and a half. Recently there are soooo many restaurants that have begun to cater for vegans. But if you’re still finding it a bit of a task to find a place with a decent range of vegan meals then you’ve come to the right post.
1. Mezze Bar, Auckland
If you’re a fan of hummus and falafel this place is actual heaven. They have a good array of vegan options. It’s super tasty Mediterranean food that’s perfect to share between a group of friends with platters and sharing plates galore!
2. Gatherings, Christchurch
Gatherings is a plant-based cafe and restaurant nestled in Canterbury. The menu is super varied and imaginative. The creator of Gatherings, Alex Davies is always posting tasty new ideas on his Instagram.
3. Janken, Auckland
This is some of the best vegan Japanese food around. Their tofu steamed buns are exceptionally delicious.
4. East Street vegetarian cafe and bar, Nelson
Any place that has vegan nachos is totally okay with me! This is a really quirky little cafe and is a great option for dinners or lunches. They’re also very accommodating and can make most dishes vegan.
5. Dear Jervois, Auckland
A brunch favourite for Aucklander’s Dear Jervois is now open for dinners. This place has a great amount of vegan friendly meals. This is definitely going to be my new go-to dinner spot.
6. Lord of the Fries, Auckland
Lord of the fries make hands down the nicest vegan burger patties. They have a truly massive range of vegetarian burgers and hot dogs which can all be made vegan by request. They also do some great fries and kumara chips.
7. Aunty Mena’s, Wellington

YOZA!!!! I have been a regular at Aunty Menas for a while now, and have tried many of the menu items, but I think I've just found my regular…..Laksa Dumpling Soup with tofu and veges….wow. So delicious, generous and CHEAP. Cannot recommend this 100% vegetarian spot enough. ??? – M xx
This place does some great vegan Malaysian food. Their veggie dumpling soup is so good. The food is also really well priced and will fill you up. So it’s a great place to go to get a quick casual feed. Seriously this is one of the best places in Welly to get a vegan dinner.
