Meat-Free Mondays have been around for some time. However, over recent years this movement has gained more and more traction as 'flexitarians' have taken up the baton of eating fully plant-based meals for at least one day of the week. Studies have shown that eating a majority plant-based diet has great effects on physical and mental health. Plus, by not consuming meat or animal products for just one day a week, you can help save the environment. If you've been considering joining the movement, you're in luck because one of our favourite vegan-friendly eateries has debuted their own Meat-Free Mondays special!
Doppio Zero is known for its wholesome and hearty menu. Filled with Mediterranean influences and contemporary twists on the old classics, their menu reflects ever-changing food trends. In response to the rise of veganism and plant-based eating, Doppio Zero has endeavored to diversify their menu options as well. Their restaurants are now some of the best loved vegan-friendly spots in the city. It comes as no surprise then that they've just introduced their new 15% discount on all vegetarian and vegan meals on Mondays.
Doppio Zero has been offering delivery and collection services since the start of level 4 lockdown. To accommodate for this, their menu has been reduced somewhat. However, this does not mean that you cannot still enjoy your favourite vegetarian pizzas, salads and winter warmers. Doppio Zero's new takeaway menu features a section specially dedicated to their vegan customers.
Coined the 'Vegan Pantry', this mini-menu features a delicious array of plant-based meals to suit any palate. Our top pick would be the Vegan Roasted Butternut Curry - roasted butternut, sweet potato, chickpeas and cashew nuts served over basmati rice and topped with fresh coriander. The perfect warming dish to up your spirits this winter, we think. But if that isn't quite to your taste, give their Above and Beyond burger, Spaghetti Vegano or Vegiterranean Pizza a try.
Doppio Zero's new takeaway menu also features lots of vegetarian dishes, including the moreish Buddha Bowl - a delicious mix of wholegrains, basil pesto, beetroot pealafel fritters, red pepper salsa, crispy chickpeas, feta and hummus yoghurt! Talk about a plant-based feast.
Doppio Zero does not employ third party delivery services. Instead, many of their waiters and kitchen staff have been deployed as Doppio Zero's very own speedy delivery team. This means that you must contact your nearest Doppio Zero via WhatsApp to order your Meat-Free Mondays meal. You can then either opt to have your food delivered or to collect it just outside the restaurant. Doppio Zero only delivers within a 5km radius, so keep that in mind before ordering. There will also be a R25 delivery fee to help support their staff in need. Here are the WhatsApp contact numbers for the Doppio Zero branches located in Johannesburg:
