You can't miss the gorgeous exterior mural at Bedu, and once you step inside, things only get better
Sometimes, it can be hard to find restaurants with vegan options, good gluten-free menus and tasty food for all your friends no matter what their dietary restrictions or preferences, but Bedu is here to fix that. With a menu that is totally delicious and broad enough to satisfy the most demanding palate, from meat-free Monday to wonderful Sunday sessions, it’s a great option for the whole crew.
Why we love Bedu
There’s a reason that Bedu is always on our list of best lunches in Central, but they offer way more than just a break from your work day. This haven from Meraki Hospitality Group (the same team behind Uma Nota and Jalan) just gets things right. We love that fact that Bedu offers three extra plant-based options every Monday, along with a full vegan Chef’s menu, but honestly, their regular menu is packed full of veggie and gluten-free options too.
Want to lounge around on bean bags and sip wine after work or on the weekend? Bedu has got you covered. Looking for a good place to impress on date night? The excellent service and quiet nooks are sure to impress. Want to satisfy a group of people with conflicting food needs? Bedu crafts wining plant-based options alongside epic animal-based protein dishes – all made with extra helpings of love.
Our fave dishes
To start, you have to do yourself a favour and order some of their housemade pickles and glorious flatbread with smoky hummus (I mean, you’re at a Middle Eastern restaurant, so it would really be rude not to.) Dig into the hummus with that light and fluffy flatbread, and all those work worries will soon disappear. We love putting the pickles and jalapenos with the hummus inside the flatbread to make tiny sandwiches that taste incredible, but maybe that’s just us!
We are BIG fans of the charred broccoli with crispy kale served on a bed of zhoug labneh. Be sure to order the brussels sprouts if they’re on the rotating menu, as the way they achieve a crispy base is magical, even managing to win anti-brussels fans over.
The harissa and lemon grilled octopus is absolutely divine, and served on a spiced beet puree that’s also good with that flatbread. Unsurprisingly, the rack of lamb is always popular, as are the black garlic and pickled chili chicken skewers.
Finish off the meal with the drunken berry mille-feuille or the milk chocolate clafoutis with rosewater whipped yoghurt and you’ll be fully cooked.
