Brunswick East mainstay The B.East is known to put as much creativity into its vegan eats as it does its meat-based fare; while Hamsa Hummus Bar is the joint credited with dreaming up Melbourne's first ever vegan shawarma. And if any duo is set to impress when it comes to a plant-based feasting collab, it's this one.

The two have teamed up to help get your week off to a ripper start, kicking off their new Meat-Free Mondays series on Monday, September 26. Swing by The B.East between 12–9pm each week to banish those post-weekend blues as you tuck into this limited-edition menu of Middle Eastern street food.

Among the all-vegan lineup, you'll find bites like house-smoked hummus served with chilli butter and chargrilled potato bread; Hamsa's famed signature shawarma featuring smoked hummus, fermented jalapeño and pickled shallots; and a VSP loaded with vegan cheese, shawarma, Franks hot sauce and lashings of garlic sauce.

The B.East's usual offering of local brews, vino and cocktails is available to match, including the much-loved slushie margarita.
