Thanks Covid. Another lockdown! But don't despair, we won't go hungry. There are a bunch of great vegan and plant-based takeaway options to keep you fuelled up at home.
Here we are again Sydney. Another lockdown, which has seen many restaurants and cafes temporarily close their doors, including our own Bodhi Restaurant Bar. While we aren’t in a position to operate for takeaway, there are a few venues in town who are offering some delicious vegan and plant-based dining options for you to enjoy at home.
In support of the vegan restaurant community, and the broader hospitality industry, we want to share some of our favourite takeaway and delivery options across Sydney for you to enjoy. At your request, we’ve also expanded the list to include both vegetarian and vegan options.
