Perth doesn't have as much than bigger cities like Melbourne and Sydney for vegans, but there's more out there than most of us realise. Certainly more than I first thought. In addition to the five places listed on Unleashed's Guide to Vegan Dining (http://www.unleashed.org.au/change_the_world/go_veg/eating_out.php
) which are:
Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant
Sri Melaka Vegetarian Nyogna Restaurant
Sassy's on Swan
The Wild Fig Cafe
(Of which I have only tried one... I need to get out more!)
There is also...
PAWS Vegan Cafe and grocery store
120 Beaufort Street Perth WA 6000
Govinda's Restaurant (Hare Krishna vegetarian with vegan options)
194 William St
Perth, WA 6000
Utopia in Northbridge
Includes a vegetarian/vegan restaurant specialising in Asian tofu and mockmeat dishes. Hello, Schezuan tofu!
14/109 James Street Perth WA 6003
I've been to all three of these, and they're all pretty damn tasty. PAWS offers student discounts on all their cafe food. They have hot meals, home made pies, Funky Pies, home made delicious, delicious cakes and slices and veggie burgers.
Govinda's, being Hare Krishna is obviously Indian food. They have the best samosa's I've ever had, and like PAWS, offer a student discount. All their food is buffet-style and if you're vegan, all you need to do is say so, because the staff all know exactly what it means, and exactly what options that eliminates for you.
The Utopia in Northbridge is the only one that I've found so far in WA with a restaurant, but I think there are others out there. Their food is strictly vegetarian/vegan, and their menu even has a little flyer encouraging people to go veg for the animals and the planet! Everything there is so tasty. And what could be better than bubble tea with your vegan satay "chicken"?
