The team at Brisbane's El Planta restaurant does an amazing job of making sure nobody misses meat when dining there. Everything served at this Hope Street Mexican hangout here is 100-percent plant-based and made from scratch, including the tortillas.

The menu changes weekly and, while it's always simple, it's certainly never boring. Try ceviche made using hearts of palm, capsicum and corn; El Planta's take on classic pescado (fish) tacos; or elote, fried spiced corn ribs with a potent chimichurri.

Can't decide? Ask for EL Planta's Feed Me banquet and let the kitchen make the decisions for you. Whatever you end up eating, make sure you wash it down with one of the restaurant's four margaritas — the grilled pineapple version is our pick.

And if you're a tequila or mezcal connoisseur, El Planta is the place for you. The team has a huge selection of the agave-based spirit, serving each with either tajin spiced fruit, a traditional sangria or a green juice made with pineapple, jalapeno, coriander, mint and lime — for you to alternate sips. Say goodbye to smashing tequila shots with salt and lime. Nowadays, we sip on fine tequilas with fruity chasers. Look at us being grown ups.
