Veganism might not be a new concept but in 2022, vegans are a lot more visible and it seems like more and more people are turning to a completely plant-based diet. Reports in the last few years have only pointed out the upward trajectory this food trend is enjoying. Preparing your own vegan food at home is great, but for those special occasions – you might want to skip doing the dishes and let someone else cook for you. Here are our favourite vegan restaurants in Perth for you to get your animal-free nourishment.
Indian food might not be the first cuisine you think of when considering a vegan dinner out, yet Veganorama is here to change your perceptions. The main courses include pumpkin masala along with some exquisite paneer dishes.
