Red Sparrow Pizza Prahran
The second outpost of Collingwood's super-popular all-vegan pizza palace.
Good news for plant-based pizza fiends living south of the Yarra — the city's first and only all-vegan pizzeria has brought its covetable meat-free slices to Prahran.
Red Sparrow has won plenty of fans — both of the vegan and carnivorous varieties — since opening in Collingwood in early 2017. So much so, that last year the owners bought the space next door, knocked out a wall and doubled the venue's size to cope with the crowds.
Now, they're letting southside punters have a piece of the pie, opening up a second space in the heart of Chapel Street. The new digs are dishing up much the same as the original, heroing plant-based pizzas and a stack of local craft beer.
Hit toppings made famous by the Collingwood outpost include the likes of the Patatas Bravas ($20) — a smoky tomato base loaded with potato, parmesan, meat-free chorizo and chipotle aioli — and the Sausage ($22) red onion, mock sausage, house-pickled jalapeños and mozzarella.
Expect some funky limited-edition numbers and gluten-free bases (for an extra $4), too, as well as a heap of vegan sides and desserts, including fried 'chicken' drumsticks, pizza topped with a Nutella-liked spread and deep-fried 'Mars bars'.
