Yamba restaurants

I’m often asked about Yamba, one of our favourite holiday spots over the last 20 years. With a great range of beaches, walks, tennis courts, skate parks and accommodation etc it’s been great for the kids growing up, and they still love it. Plus, it’s now only 90 minutes’ drive from Mullumbimby.

Dear food eaters,

There’s nothing worse than an annoying vegan telling you about some ‘great vegan place’ they went to eat. So I am NOT going to do that – BUT, I am going to tell you about an amazing place I ate at recently. A place that sold food. Very yummy food. No Bones food.

I took some photos of my meal, as you do when you’re an annoying vegan – so you can share them with all your annoying vegan cult members – but I am embarrassed to say that I didn’t get a shot of the entree because the konjac calamari strips with caper and dill mayo at No Bones were so tasty I couldn’t control myself. Split second – empty plate.

I won’t rant on about how glorious the plant based food was, but I will say that we ate the bao and pulled jackfruit (mouth watering); a ‘Byron Traditional Pasta’ which was a immensely delicious beetroot ravioli, garlic sage butter, macadamia feta, rocket, radicchio and roasted walnuts; and an incredible dish with chickpea tempeh (drool).

We also had an ‘oh-no-we-couldn’t-possibly-eat-any-more’ dessert (we did share it betwixt us) of a spiced ginger cookie crumble, cashew mascarpone, fresh berries, raspberry coulis and cocoa nibs. GAH! So heavenly. My partner and I just looked at each other grinning deliriously. 

I won’t mention that No Bones is vegan AF, I’ll just say that everything on the menu is 100 per cent plant based, including everything from the bar (you didn’t know alcohol wasn’t always plant based did you? Stay tuned… ).

I have to say though, we were lucky that we booked, because No Bones was packed! And as we left, our table was almost immediately filled by the next ravenous couple who wanted to eat the yummy yummy stuff.

Signed, The Annoying Vegan
