Everything Vegan at Red Rooster (2023)

Red Rooster is an Australian “Chicken” restaurant with few vegan options, especially for an Australian Restaurant.

They do have a few vegan options, nothing spectacular, but you can make a passable vegan meal there in a pinch. Personally I’d get some roasted potatoes, corn without butter, maybe some vegetable medley, and a piece of garlic bread if I had to eat there. I figure it’d be a decent meal.

But if you’re a vegan, or someone looking to see if a Vegan could eat at Red Rooster, it’d be better to go somewhere else (maybe KFC?). Almost anywhere else would probably have more options. Eating at Red Rooster as a vegan is doable though.

Vegan Menu Options at Red Rooster:

  • Famous chips
  • Garlic bread
  • Roast Carrots
  • Roast Pumpkin
  • Corn (specify no butter)
  • Peas
  • Pineapple Fritter
  • Sweet Potato Wedges
  • Onion Rings
  • Country Potatoes

Their mashed potatoes and gravy aren’t vegan, and they don’t have a real vegan meal put together so you’ll be left to put sides together into a meal if you end up eating at Red Rooster. Hopefully they step up their game soon and at least make a “veggie meal” options that bundles their sides together.

Are Red Rooster Chips Vegan-Friendly?

Yes, Red Rooster’s Chips are 100% Vegan-friendly, as they’re fried in vegetable oil and they don’t do silly things like adding milk/dairy into their crust/seasoning.

Is Red Rooster Gravy Vegan?

No, according to Red Rooster’s Allergen menu their gravy contains both eggs and milk, so it wouldn’t be vegan-friendly.
