Let’s face it, on a busy day the last thing you want to think about is what to make for lunch or dinner, but it can be hard to find convenient takeaway options that are healthy and nutritious. Here are some quick and healthy fast food options in and around Subiaco that will have you satisfied and sticking to your goals. With plenty of options for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free diets, as well as meat-based meals, these fast food joints have you covered.
Jus Burgers has been going strong for over a decade and it’s easy to see why: they serve up fresh, healthy burgers that taste as good as their less healthy counterparts. They are well-known for opting for rustic, charred Turkish buns rather than the sugary brioche style and have kept with this style since opening back in 2008, rather than chopping and changing to follow short-lived burger trends.
As they are small and family-owned, they are in the business of supporting local and show this by using only local suppliers for their meat, vegetables and other produce. In a win-win, this means they can always get their produce fresh, rather than having to ship over frozen produce if they were a franchise.
Be Free Organics
This all-organic café boasts a variety of delicious and nourishing meals that patrons can tuck into on the go. Owners, husband and wife duo Caillan and Alessia, are committed to creating original, affordable healthy foods. The plant-based menu is sprinkled with favourites like healthy Reuben toasties or raw vegan brownies, as well and larger meals like vegan butter chicken or a colourful kale super salad packed full of nutrient-dense greens and seasonal vegetables, topped with spiced seeds.
Their specialty frozen meals are a great option for those looking for a healthy fast food dish that will hit the spot at the end of a long day, with both gluten free and vegan options available.
Baguette Me Not
If it’s sweet and spicy flavours of Vietnam that you’re craving, look no further than the Banh Mi served up at Baguette Me Not. With options to choose your own fillings in their new Four Seasons Banh Mi, or grab their pre-made ingredients to make your own at home, you control exactly what goes on your plate (and into your body).
If you want to skip the bun then this restaurant offers a variety of fresh, delicious salads to satisfy those lunchtime rumbles.
For some of the freshest sashimi and sushi around, you can’t go past Moe Sushi. Owner and chef Moe K Maung dishes up hand-crafted, melt-in-your-mouth sushi that are kind to your tastebuds and your waist band.
Frequented by elite athletes like cricketer Adam Gilcrist and AFL team the Fremantle Dockers, as well as Governor Kim Beazley, Moe presents patrons with an all-star menu with salmon nigiri, chicken cucumber sushi and prawn rice paper rolls.
It’s all made fresh daily and is perfect for a quick, healthy meal.

For those keen to try something different, this Peruvian-inspired menu is packed with unique options for a quick and easy meal that will satisfy your body and your stomach. Avoiding the battered and fried options that often accompany taco fillings, El Peruvian has added a grilled fish taco to their menu with a mild or spicy finish. If you are seeking something light and packed with nutrients, grab one of their La Superfood Beetnamese Salads, delicately blending the flavours of Asia and South America.
Featuring both plant-based and meaty options across their menu, there is something for everyone. Plus, since the restaurant first came to life as a food truck and became so popular they had to expand to a restaurant, you know it’s good.
