Veggie Villa.

Oh the excitement I felt when I saw a new vego place opening in Flemington right near my work! Veggie Villa is now open and has a fabulous menu. We have been twice within a couple of days, once for dessert and once for lunch. The meals are very affordable and dabble in Asian, Indian, burgers and also a big raw section. It was great and I'll be there often.

Here's the raw chocolate shake - $7 for a large and with banana, agave, vanilla beans, raw cacao powder and your choice of milk. It was YUM.


Raw chocolate cheesecake - $7. Very yum and surprisingly light.


Raw blueberry cheesecake - $7. BEST.


Mango tropical juice made on coconut water and fresh mango - $6 for large. This was as delicious as it sounds. Could have done with some ice though!


We got the corn chips with salsa and cashew cheese from the 'Small plate' menu - $5. A generous serve of tasty corn chips with tasty dips, maybe not quite enough of them but tasty none the less.


Tempeh wrap with spinach, tomato coleslaw, satay sauce and chilli sauce in pita bread - $7. This was tasty and filling. I am not a huge tempeh fan and will try the tofu version next trip but the satay sauce made all things good.


Okay here is the winner - wheat chicken veggie burger with green salad, cucumber, tomato, satay sauce and creamy coleslaw on a delicious focaccia, $7. This was stupid tasty and also $7, yes I will be eating a lot of these and easing the work day pain.


Veggie Villa has no online presence but can be found at 331 Racecourse Road, Flemington 3031 VIC. Their number is 03 9376 7140. Thank you for bringing vego food to my side of the tracks VV :)

  2. I went tonight and was very very disappointed -- there service was not great, the meals exceptionally slow and when my burger and my friends burgers came they had been served on stale buns -- won't be returning.

    1. Allna38, It's run by a very nice young indian couple and fronted by a young foreigner as the only waitress. It's a very new restraunt trying to serve healthy food for the community and they ovbiously don't have the big bucks to suit your needs 100% of the time. Please take this into consideration and give Veggie Villa another shot.

  3. Oh that's no good Alina, sorry to hear. The times I visited there were very few other customers so service and meals were quick. My burger was on a fresh bun too so I guess I got lucky? I will follow-up with my next visit so hopefully they get themselves in order by then!

  4. I wish we had a good experience but that wasn't the case. Small portions, bland, tasteless food & not great service. Won't be going back.

  5. Love this place! Amazing quality - similar to Yong Green but much more generous serves and fare better value for money! Such a huge range of cuisines and all prepared very well. Absolutely delicious!
