I must begin by saying Zaatar is not a vegetarian/vegan establishment. However their ‘pizza’ bases are vegan (I again received confirmation when I visited today) and I’d like to share my selections with youse all.
I love the plain zaatar, cooked fresh for you and costs $1.00:
When I go there to eat, I get a zaatar base topped with olive, capsicum, onion and tomato. I think this cost about $3.00:
I often buy the spinach pide (no photo as I didn’t get this today) and it’s delicious.
Now some of you may be wagging a finger at me saying now Vegan Opoulous, aren’t you supposed to be avoiding gluten? HMMM? And to that I say yea verily you may scold in fairness, but I am going to get tested for glutenny problems and apparently I have to not avoid gluten. And if I absolutely MUST eat gluten, it’s coming in the form of Zaatar’s zaatars. Mmmkay? Because they’re just so yum.
Zaatar gets quite busy during lunch hours but I’ve always been able to find a table. It’s a great option for a budget friendly meal. I went there today with non-vegan Husband so there’s something for everyone. There are dips and salad as well as vegetarian pastries and sweets. Zaatar is a family establishment and I always see lots of families with young children enjoying their meals.
Zaatar is located on the corner of Sydney Road and Munro St, Coburg (so the northern part of Sydney Road as you head towards Bell Street). They are open 7 days a week from 7am to 8pm.
