There are many vegan restaurants in Brisbane, Australia, and we were very happy to have the chance to visit Vege Rama in Brisbane’s West End.

It’s a lovely, open-air restaurant (like most in balmy Brisbane), and when we arrived for a (very late) lunch, the restaurant was quiet and peaceful.

We began with a juice called the “liver cleanser,” which contains carrot, apple, beetroot, ginger, and turmeric. It was delicious (and pretty).

The delicious meals we sampled included the black bean burger, served with sweet potato fries.

While the black bean burger was great, our favorite was the grilled marinated tofu steaks on udon noodles, which was sublime.

We returned on a Friday night, and the place was overflowing with customers. We had the fantastic tofu/noodle dish again, as well as tone of the night’s specials, a delicious green curry with tofu. (Photo not included because the meal disappeared too quickly.)

Also fun about being there on a weekend evening was the chance to enjoy the specialty cocktails, local beers, and a great selection of local beer and wines.
