It’s great to see that vegetarian dining in Sydney is getting better each day. Here are some of my Sydney vegetarian highlights during February 2017.
I first visited Arthur Street Cafe in Baulkham Hills quite a while ago and even though it’s close to home, I simply hadn’t thought to return. Since that time they’ve updated the menu and it’s much more inviting. I had a veg burger which was loaded with roast pumpkin, avocado, tomato chutney, rocket and haloumi. A crunchy serve of beer-battered fries were on the side I sipped a homemade raspberry and mint soda. You can bet I’ll be back soon to check out the breakfast menu.
Dinner at Kindred in Darlington was ideal for an indulgent night out with friends. They offer fresh and beautiful Italian dishes, with a focus on lots of ingredients made from scratch including the bread and pasta. They’re also a great option for vegetarians with loads of meat-free dishes. The menu is designed for sharing and the standouts from our table included the sweet potato triangoli, the gnocchi with pea puree and the mushroom rotolo. If you’ve still got room for dessert the chocolate fondant with peanut butter gelato and cookie is not to be missed.
As a lover of cats, I was pretty keen to check out the Lazy Cat Cafe when it opened in Lidcombe. With signs on the wall such as ‘All you need is love and a cat’ and ‘Keep calm drink coffee love cat’, it’s certainly the right place for me. The haloumi burger and beer battered fries were pretty good. On my second visit I went for avocado on toast with haloumi instead of eggs (they don’t switch menu items so the haloumi was an extra charge). They also have a pretty impressive display of desserts which would make it a great spot for an afternoon visit, to sit down and relax with a hot drink and a slice of cake.
