Chilli 'non' Carne Calzone - Las Vegan Nirvana - Collingwood


Las Vegan Nirvana are now open on a Thursday and Friday night! (or is it Friday and Saturday?!) anyway, I finally made it along. I had the most un-nutritious meal at the table with the 'chilli non carne' filled calzone, chips and satay sauce dip. Meelee had the 'sloppy joe' burger, a rich smoky tvp tomatoey extremely sloppy sauce and Simon had the lentil burger, all served with salad and chips. Las Vegan Nirvana is not going to win any culinary awards any time soon, but it is cheap and cheerful vegan food, and the couple that run it are soooo gorgeous. I cant wait to go back and try everything on the menu, its becoming really important to me to support vegetarian only restaurants/businesses. Definitely one to try and just as good as the East Brunswick but for much more reasonable prices.

Deets: 22 Smith Street Collingwood, Victoria 3066 (03) 9415 9001
$$: burgers with chips and salad were $13 my calzone was $6 with side of chips $3 and satay sauce side $2


  1. "Las Vegan Nirvana is not going to win any culinary awards any time soon"

    I don't know about that; that sloppy joe burger is, in my opinion, one of the best veggie burgers in Melbourne -- much better than the Lord of the Fries one that was named Melbourne Best Vegetarian Burger a while back.

    Their chips are as good as any, too (weeell, maybe not QUITE as good as Grill'd). The trick is to order ALL the sauces (they're 50c or something, so why not?): mayo, satay AND salsa.

  2. you know I never thought of culinary award like that! yes I tasted the sloppy joe and it was AWESOME... but bowl of soul wins best vegie burger for me for their steak out sandwich!

    the chips are divine! and I think the only organic chips in melbourne too?

  3. Yum! I finally made it to Las Vegan Nirvana just last week too - Thursday night. I got the tofu and tempeh chips with satay and I turns out tempeh doesn't really taste like the devil's ar5eh0le if someone else cooks it! It was great and I have been reinspired! (probably to fail miserably and make another vile concoction)
