The Turkish Cafe
Although this restaurant isn’t strictly vegetarian, it has so many fantastic vegetarian options on its menu that we just had to put it on our list. The food is excellent and consistently so, but it is also the price of the stuff that really boggles the mind. In a part of town that is renowned for being a bit on the pricey side, The Turkish Cafe has $12 NZD lunches, which are plenty for one person. You really can’t go wrong stopping by this little gem. Treat yourself to some of their incredible falafel or moussaka, but not before you’ve tucked into a couple of their exquisite borek – filo pastry parcels with spinach, feta, cottage cheese, ricotta and tahini sauce, oven-baked and served with hummus and yoghurt, tabouleh and chilli sauce.
