Happy days northerners, you no longer need to travel far and wide to find exceptional vegan/vego food because exceptional vegan/vego food has traveled to you.
Well close to you. At Club Helensvale to be exact and prepare to get deliciously green gang. That’s right herbivores (and those who don’t mind the odd meat free meal), Club Helensvale, who already had quite the impressive menu, have just launched a brand newie and it’s jam-packed with delicious vegan and vegetarian eats.
The newbie comes with the appointment of brand new (to Club Helensvale not the world in general) Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Manager Justin Zammit who is leading the charge with a fresh new approach to the Club’s food.
His Michelin Star background has seen him creating delectable eats throughout Europe, Brisbane and, most recently, for the QT Group. So we’re in good hands.
It’s his belief that plant-based diets are the way of the future and, with summer fast approaching, we’d be inclined to agree.
No doubt you’re aware that eating out has become quite the extravaganza in the last few years with every single food preference there is in the world, and some quite possibly made up, on offer to hungry patrons.
Enter Club Helensvale, the local faves changing things up for the good of the people.
So what’s on offer you ask? Well, brace yourselves folks, things are about to get tasty.
Tempura Vegetables for entrée are always a good idea obviously.
Next up, a vegetarian favourite is definitely the Gnocchi made with sage butter, peas, ricotta and Parmesan and it is absolutely melt in your mouth.
Vegan-wise (and otherwise) don’t go past the Vegan Eggplant Parmagiana with marinated eggplant, San Marzano tomato, basil, vegan mozzarella, crunchy fries and salad.
There is also a Palak Tofu Curry made with spinach and coconut and it’ll tickle your vegan tastebuds.
At Café 22, there’s a full vegan breakfast on offer as well as the Vegan Broad Bean Burger made up of a broad bean fritter, grated beetroot, carrot, hummus coconut yoghurt and crunchy fries on the side.
Maybe order all of those for your own sampling pleasure. Oh and don’t forget freshly made vegan cakes and desserts for all you sweet lovers.
The menu boasts a strong commitment to fresh, seasonal and locally grown produce supporting Scenic Rim growers wherever possible too.
So there you have it, if you haven’t treated yourself to a trip to Club Helensvale, it’s high time you did and, if you have, there’s a few next-level newbies to add to your rotation.
