Melbourne- a vegan paradise

Postby stateofflux » Thu Nov 26, 2009 3:41 pm

Melbourne is just outstanding when it comes to the vegan food on offer, as well as the quality of that food. Here are some pics from my recent travels.


Image

The Indonesian-inspired Satay Pizza from Plush Pizza in Melbourne. Never thought I'd enjoy a peanut-flavoured pizza but this was seriously plush. http://www.plushpizza.com.au/

Image

Image

Caramel tart from outstanding vegan bakery Tart 'n Round. They have an orgasmic black forest gateau, but I was too greedy and ate it before I could take photos. Second pic is Tiramisu cake http://www.tartnround.com.au/


Image


The best hot chocolate ever, it's made with cashew milk and a really rich deep chocolate, made in-house at Coco Loco http://cocoloco1.wordpress.com/


Mostly Greens- a macrobiotic inspired plate of rice, BBQ tempeh and greens from Vegiebar

Image

Helmut's meal, can't remember the name

Image

Hardcore Iv's tempeh sandwich

Image

Lunch as Las Vegan

Image

Vegan Pumpkin Pizza at Mr Natural Vegetarian Pizza

Lots more pics, unfortunately some from the last night are really blurry, did anyone get any decent pics?

This makes me cry, I'm so far away from anything like this kind of food. :cry:

This has always been my favourite meal at Vegie Bar.

That looks like the "Gado Gado".

I'm currently dieting and every thing I seem to look at, talk about, and think about seems to be food. Arghhh.

Yeah, I loved that Mostly Greens dish, after a lot of fake meats and cakes (not complaining though!) I was ready for some greens and brown rice.

As I recall Helmut was not impressed with the Gado Gado though.

Poor helmut, I guess the cake from Tart 'n Round made up for it though :-)

Green Gourmet is amazing. Last time I was in Sydney I went a couple of times. I can't wait to get back and check out Green Palace (is that correct?) just down the road as I've heard it's even better.

Iku was great for convenience, too.

Brisbane

Postby Laranja » Wed Dec 02, 2009 11:46 pm

I live in Brisbane and there's a few good places to find vegan food. Kwan-Yin in Fortitude Valley, Loving Hut in Mt Gravatt, The Forest in West End, The Alibi Room in Fortitude Valley and My Heart Garden in St.Lucia. You might also want to check out a brand new all vegan health food shop opening next week in Enogerra called Green Edge. I hope you enjoy Brisvegas!
