As always, it was a busy month in the eating department. And boy did I enjoy some good veg eats around Sydney.
I finally ticked Soul Burger off my wish list, a joint serving plant-based goodies and a menu that was good enough to order up large from AND make me want to go back to try more.
This huge serve between two people was waaay more than we could handle and I admit, we were totally defeated and had to take some home for later. We tried the special for the month – Hanson’s Halal which was a massive plate of hot chips loaded with veg meat strips, drizzled with sauces, a battered fish burger, an enormous sumo burger, a serve of red fries, green fries and kumera fries (yes, we had ALL the fries) and a creamy chocolate coconut shake which was made with homemade coconut ice cream.
The verdict: it’s quite tasty and a great option for an indulgent veg comfort meal. I think the next visit needs to be planned a whole lot better – like skipping a meal beforehand and not loading up on too many fries! Rookie mistake.
A couple of weekdays in the big smoke meant I got to try some city eats which was a novelty as I’m usually stuck out in the ‘burbs. I had a light and lovely tofu noodle bowl at Vermicelli, a joint serving up fast and fresh Vietnamese food that recently opened a flagship store on Clarence Street. I could totally see myself eating there on the regular if I worked in town.
For a relaxing breakfast (and window shop of the fancy Queen Victoria Building stores) I ate at Metropole. I ordered a bunch of things off the menu to make up a tasty veg breakfast of avocado, haloumi and mushroom on sourdough toast and I must say the soy hot chocolate was one of the best I’ve had in a LONG time.
If you’re after a quick and busy hit of Malaysian street food, Ipoh is the place to be. It’s noisy, fast and the servings are big. I enjoyed a huge serve of Nasi Lemak – the vegetable and tofu laksa looked pretty hearty, too.
