Vegan, veggie or veg-curious: Sydney’s vegetarian restaurant overview. Sydney has long been known as the city with endless summers, health-conscious people using the natural landscape for exercise and some of the world’s best restaurants. The dining scene here is huge and is only getting better. Chefs and restaurateurs are keeping a close ear to the ground when it comes to trends, dining preferences and the ever-changing landscape of health-conscious folks keen on delicious food and a healthy lifestyle. So it comes as no surprise that Sydney’s vegetarian restaurant scene is booming. With more and more Sydneysiders opting for meat-free alternatives or going the whole hog (sorry) and becoming vegan, the market for vegetarian restaurants in Sydney and an increase in vegetarian or vegan dishes on offer at omnivorous eateries, has never been better.
