I am undoubtedly a massive foodie- below are some of what I consider to be the best vegan restaurants in Sydney.
Shift Eatery- Surry Hills
Shift Eatery is my favourite destination when I find myself in Surry Hills. Shift’s premise is that it facilitates the shift from an omnivorous to a plant-based diet, providing a delicious range of both comfort food and healthy choices. If you’ve been craving sandwiches and toasties, this is certainly the place to come, though I usually find myself devouring their healthy bowl offerings.
My latest favourite has to be the Poke bowl; if you didn’t know better, you’d easily be forgiven for mistaking the beautifully marinated tomato for sushi. Their Mörk hot chocolate with macadamia milk is also out of this world, and the iced version is the best chocolate milk you’re ever going to taste!
Comeco Foods- Newtown
It’s been years since Sydney has boasted its own vegan sushi restaurant, until Comeco Foods came along to put us all out of our misery. Comeco Foods sushi is both vegan and gluten free, and (I hear) they offer some pretty outstanding sourdough doughnuts.
After I tried the sushi from Comeco, I was so impressed I ordered sushi platters for my birthday this year. The flavours are inventive, unusual and spectacularly tasty. I highly recommend.
VERD – Manly and Barangaroo
As far as healthy and delicious goes in Manly, it’s incredibly hard to move past VERD. Well-priced, delicious and thoroughly nutritionally balanced, I’ve never been disappointed with this place. It’s the kind of food you wish you had the patience to craft yourself at home.
Vegan Lebanese Bondi Beach – Bondi
I LOVE Lebanese food, and I believe it is one of those cuisines that lends itself so naturally to a vegan diet. When you think about it, so many of the staple favourites of Lebanese food are already usually vegan: hummus, baba ghanough, tahini, falafel, majadara, vine leaves, tabouli, fatoush. VLBB takes these foods and adds on offerings such as plant-based meats for dishes such as Kafta and Shawarma. Such a delicious menu if you find yourself down in Bondi! My favourite meal is the majadara with a side of fattoush; besides being delicious, it’s also perfectly nutritionally balanced with plenty of protein, iron, zinc and complex carbohydrates.
Nalini’s – Bronte, Bondi Beach and Bondi Junction
I’ve been going to Nalini’s for YEARS, and I’m impressed by how the menu has recently evolved. Their new night time menu is absolutely delicious, as are their probiotic-rich dosas and refined-sugar free ice cream. Whether you’re in the mood for curry, salad or lentil falafels, Nalini’s has you covered.
Khamsa Cafe- Newtown
As you may have guessed I love Middle Eastern food, and believe it lends itself perfectly to vegan eats. Khamsa offers some deliciously crafted meals, but when I go there I usually can’t decide, and just end up ordering all my favourite share plates at once: Baba ghanough, Fava beans and potatoes with a side of flat bread. So YUM! Their eggplant Shakshuka with scrambled tofu is also phenomenal.
Yellow- Pott’s Point
If I’m looking to really treat myself, or to celebrate a special occasion my top pick is always Yellow, Pott’s Point. The last time I went there their entire menu was exclusively vegan, aside from butter offered with the bread to start (so be aware!). The food is outstanding, and you’re bound to be both surprised and delighted with any visit you make.
I hope these selections were helpful for you; I wish you endless happy plant eating!
I cannot thank Camilla enough for her support and guidance helping me discover my health issues and setting me on the... path to getting my health back on track. I am so thankful I sought her advice, as I have seen drastic changes within a fortnight. I am looking forward to continuing my health journey with Camilla and would highly recommend for those seeking to improve their health in a natural way.read more
I cant ´t describe how grateful I am to have got in contact with Camilla! She really has an amazing knowledge about the... body and how it all works together on a different level than anyone I´ve ever worked with. I came to her to get help with my headaches, migraines and fatigue after years and multiple visits/treatments with different doctors, experts etc. without any luck. Instead of just recommending me a "quick-fix", she worked with me to find the underlying issues.I've been working with her for a couple of months now and she never fails to give me the highest quality treatment in all aspects. She is also super quick to respond to any question or concern I might have, which I really appreciate.She is also one of the kindest, sweetest and most understandable people you will ever meet. It is so comforting and calming to finally have found a person who truly cares about your health as she does (AND is vegan!!). I can´t recommend her enough!! Thank you Camilla :)read more
Camilla has been absolutely amazing and I highly recommend her. She understands and respects my vegan dietary choices... which I have struggled with other doctors and naturopaths. She patiently listens and created a thorough treatment plan for me. I have been on the treatment plan for a few weeks now and my symptoms have greatly reduced and I’m already feeling much better. I’m highly impressed by her prompt response to my emails. She is very knowledgeable and helpful and has made my healing journey extremely comfortable.Thank you Camillaread more
In the past, what I found difficult with doctors was the fact that they did not listen to me; they literally finished... the sentences on my behalf all the time, rushing a diagnosis!Camilla is such a great listener, she really took all the possible information from me, she studied my case meticolously and came up with a cure which makes a lot of sense...and she explained it to me! Some other practitioners just prescribe lots of things and do not even explain what is cointained in those supplements/herbs and what they are specifically for.I highly recommend Camilla to all the ones who want a "same-level" relationship which their practitioner and not a "yes, I trust you, you are the expert" kind of relationship.Thank you Camilla!read more
I'm so glad I went to see Camilla, being vegan it's nice to find a naturopath who shares the same values.She asked me... a lot of questions during the initial consult, I felt that she was genuinely trying to help. After a few weeks and some tests done, she made a very detailed treatment plan which was very thorough and well explained.After only a few weeks following the treatment plan, the symptoms greatly improved as my gut health got better.I'd highly recommend Camilla as she has great knowledge combined with a caring and effective holistic approach.read more
I truly wish I found Camilla earlier and I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a naturopath! I've been seeing... her for a few months now and I'm constantly impressed at how thorough, knowledgeable and passionate she is. I've had gut and hormonal issues for as long as I can remember, and from the get-go, I felt Camilla was truly invested in finding the underlying causes and helping me resolve them. She is also the warmest, kindest person - an absolute joy to work with.I've already seen such vast improvements in my health, and for the first time in my life, I'm confident that my issues can well and truly be resolved. I also really appreciate working with a fellow vegan who not only understands my values, but is equally passionate about them too.Thank you so much, Camilla! I cannot recommend her enough!read more
I am so grateful I have found Camilla. We hit it off straight away and she understands me. Her knowledge is second to... none. She goes above and beyond and has helped me so much, so quickly. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her. Thank you Camilla.read more
I've had a pretty horrid time with gut and fatigue problems for over two years and in this time, I have seen countless... doctors, naturopaths, gastroenterologists, Chinese medicine practitioners and so on...Some of which told me to stop my vegan diet, so this was when I searched for a vegan Naturopath and found Camilla.Camilla has been nothing but outstanding since our first contact. She is the first person in my health journey who I feel is genuinely invested in my health and has worked tirelessly to help and provide answers. She is always quick to reply to my lengthy emails and although currently at the early stages of my treatment, every piece of advice and treatment given has been based off facts and logical reasoning.I really recommend Camilla. I have felt very comfortable with her from day one and you will get someone who is knowledgeable, passionate but most importantly, will do her utmost to help you through any problem.read more
I would without a doubt recommend Camilla to anyone looking for a naturopath. She is so warm, caring, knowledgable and... helpful. I sought Camilla’s help to work on my severe PMS, heavy and painful periods and PTSD and mental health. From the moment I saw her she went above and beyond and is always there to help whenever I have any questions or concerns. I have just started my treatment plan and feel confident that I will see an improvement with my concerns.Thank you so much Camila xread more
I have been working with Camilla for a couple of months now with the aim of treating and managing hair loss, stress,... and anxiety. Camilla's process is incredibly thorough and informative and it has been amazing to not only feel better, but learn SO much in the process. My treatment plan has been very manageable, and Camilla has always made sure I understand why we are doing things rather than just telling me. This has really helped me to feel more in control and kept me committed to the lifestyle changes. Prior to working with Camilla, I felt a pretty overwhelmed with information, none of which I could be certain was true or even relevant to my symptoms whereas Camilla's process is so personal, and completely tailored to the individual.Camilla has been so kind, and understanding and has made the whole experience as comfortable and easy as possible. I have been shocked by how quickly I began to feel positive changes, and cant wait to see them continue!read more
Camilla is an incredible naturopath. I was recommended by a friend. I was struggling with my energy levels and needed... help to figure out why. The consults were thorough and in-depth and camilla made me feel super comfortable the whole way through.I had bloods done which confirmed i was low on iron as she had predicted. She wrote me an amazing in depth treatment plan, which included when and how to take my supplements with loads of tips & tricks on how to get the most out of them and include more into my diet. She also gave me loads of great recipes to cook to help with my iron intake.It has been over a month into treatment and i feel super energetic and full of life again. It was exactly what i needed to help get back to myself.I couldn’t recommend her enough. If you’re struggling with anything her in-depth knowledge in her field will help you.Thankyou camilla.read more
