Lone Star Goes Vegan

New Zealand’s favourite homegrown bar and eatery, Lone Star has created a brand-new vegan menu!

The legendary Kiwi restaurant has developed the new vegan menu from scratch, now offering something for the whole family - whatever their dietary requirements. 

The Lone Star chefs worked hard to develop delicious new recipes, finding the tastiest plant-based vegan alternatives, all locally sourced here in good old NZ!

Famous for classics like Redneck Ribs and Dixie Chicken, customers can now order original vegan options.

Always looking to improve while staying true to its roots, starters include a traditional seeded baked ciabatta loaf, oven baked and served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The Cowboy Bean Dip combines spicy red kidney beans, cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and jalapenos, blended and served hot with sour cream and oven-baked flour tortilla chips. 

Mains include the Midnight Nachos, served with their famous spicy bean mix, roasted seasonal vegetables and topped with grilled cheese, salsa, sour cream and jalapenos. The Campfire Burrito comes with roasted vegetables, spicy bean mix, greens and rice, and the Fist Full of Pizza has two flour tortillas, roasted veges, cheese, tomato, fresh herbs, salsa, sour cream and jalapenos. It would almost be rude not to add a side of buffalo chips, jalapenos or a crispy cauliflower basket!

For the plant-based sweet tooth, enjoy an indulgent chocolate and boysenberry cheesecake finished with boysenberry topping, served with homemade sorbet and berry coulis. Alternatively, opt for the Comfortably Numb with premium Killinchy Gold New Zealand sorbet or dairy-free ice cream served with wafers and berry coulis. 

Ever-evolving since opening its first restaurant back in 1988, Lone Star now has 24 joints nationwide. The Lone Star vegan menu is currently available in four restaurants, including Christchurch’s Riccarton and Manchester St., Taupō and Nelson. The menu will very soon roll out to Queenstown, Papanui, Masterton, Tauranga and others.
