by Friends of Fire

A Vegan-Friendly Restaurant in Melbourne

Melbourne is renowned for its multicultural food scene, and Friends of Fire offers delicious plant-based menus for alternative food palates. 

Located on Level 1 of the Marvel Feature Bar in Marvel Stadium’s popular sporting and event precinct, you can enjoy the footy games with a great meal and an even better time! 

Catering to meat-eaters, pescatarians, vegans, and versatile food fanatics, you can eat by the fire and pop open some champagne before your big event begins.

What vegan options can you taste at Friends of Fire, and what do we do differently? Here’s a run-down of our favourite dishes and how celebrity chef Shannon Martinez makes it possible.

Why Choose Vegan Options at Friends of Fire?

As the owner of Australia’s leading vegan-friendly restaurants Smith & Daughters and Smith & Deli, Shannon Martinez shifted from traditional kitchens to plant-based prestige. 


Delicious and approachable for all, her appearance on MasterChef introduced her plant-based cuisine to a global audience for the first time, and soon after, to Friends of Fire.


Collaborating with Friends of Fire–and Amphora–we bring vegan food to the stadium dining scene and entertainment precinct in a casual setting where everyone can be themselves.

An Inclusive Vegan Menu

Many restaurants have exclusively offered meat, but Friends of Fire presents an exciting, inclusive menu for vegans and pescatarians to indulge in! 


With vegan alternatives for chicken wings, calamari, steak rolls, chicken parmigiana, classic cheeseburgers, and even ice cream, you won’t feel left out when dining with others! Almost everything on the menu has a mouth-watering vegan or fish alternative.


From mock meat burgers to hotdogs, chicken, prawns, and steak, we use fresh, locally sourced plant-based ingredients in Melbourne that are always creative and innovative.


Why order a main meal at Friends of Fire? Eat food you enjoy without frustrating menu restrictions, have a few drinks before your footy team comes out to play, and return afterwards before heading home! 


Say goodbye to waiting in line at the gates, because we happily scan your tickets. Scan, order a meal to your preferences, and pre-order a few cocktails before the big night.
