• Every now and then, cooking is just too much of a mission. But where do you order takeout from when you don’t eat meat? Here are five spots:

    1. Nourish’d

    This plant-based, zero-waste cafe and juicery is a well-known Cape Town spot. Sure to make you feel powered up by what you put into your body, takeaways from Nourish’d are always a good choice.

    Along with delicious juices and smoothies, you can also order amazing plant-based meals, from something light to a solid dish that will fill you up. Nourish’d is available on OrderIn and UberEats.

    2. Lekker Vegan

    Lekker Vegan is a great option if you’re in the mood for some oily, movie night style takeout. Acting on the idea that non-meat eaters don’t just want salads all the time, the restaurant gives you a chance to eat some yummy junk food – meat-free!

    Lekker Vegan offers plenty of dishes to satisfy all of the cravings, from vegan “chicken” and “beef” gatsbys to nuggets and kebabs.

    3. Spur

    Spur? This place isn’t vegan! No, it’s not primarily. However, taking note of the shift to plant-based diets, Spur has added a great veggie range to their menu.

    The South African classic now offers vegan versions of their iconic burgers and schnitzels, and they’re mouth-watering. Spur is available on Mr. D and UberEats.

    4. BamBoo Plant Power

    BamBoo Plant Power is a restaurant that focuses on producing food that is good for our bodies and for the planet. Their plant-based menu includes innovative veggie foods, such as mushroom “bacon”.

    Ordering from here, you can get something healthy but also be able to finish off with a sweet treat, such as their peanut butter pie. BamBoo Plant Power is available on Mr. D and UberEats.

    5. Nando’s

    Although Nando’s is pretty much known for a place to go when you want to eat chicken, they’ve recently come out with an extensive – and amazing – veggie menu. All of their veggie meals are cooked on separate grills.

    From vegetable-based burgers to halloumi wraps and avo pitas, Nando’s doesn’t just offer meat-free meals, but particularly interesting and yummy ones. Nando’s is available on Mr. D and UberEats.
