I am still roaming the town with no camera hence no restaurant updates (and very little updating in general) why do I have to be so TIGHT! argh! still waiting on my battery charger but it should be here this week.
Still wonderful. still the love of my life.
Met some friends there for post Movida cocktails (a good thing to know the are both open on Monday nights). The cocktail lounge is tiny and cramped but we had a few nice drinks. For previous Gingerboy experiences click!
lord of the fries
I'm going to go out on a limb and say lords of the fries is pretty disgusting. I know a lot of you like them but I find their food too greasy, not enough straight up vegan sauces, too expensive and substandard mock meat products (Toffuti and I have NO IDEA what dogs they used for hot dogs). I think marketing to meat eaters turns veg*ns away. Having said that, they ARE feeding a lot of meat eaters vegetarian food. I dont know just not for me, I guess I'm just disappointed that for a vegie place theres such little amount of things I want to eat. Cant please them all!
Monk Bodhi Dharma
My charmed first visit wasnt as charmed the second time around. I realised the pistacio creamy stuff for the french toast is Tofutti (I know I know I HATE TOFUTTI OK - probably years of it being my only option) and this is going to sound dumb but the french toast is so hard to cut into it goes everywhere. Next time I'm going to try something different. I do love the space and going to Mexico is an exciting excursion! (and Tofutti or not I think its great they offer so many vegan options). and pps that poached pear.. actually.. it is pretty incredible.
Vincents Vegetarian Supermarket
I finally went there and what a dizzying array of food. I think you've all gathered by now I'm not really a mock meat (or mock dairy) fan. I like my food unprocessed. However I got some cool lycee jelly and some mock chicken (for the rare time I feel like it). More expensive than Radical Grocery however! Makes me appreciate Anikee even more!
First monthly Vegan drinks @ the Sporting Club
So great! we had about 35 people and raised just over $120 for RSPCA QLD Flood appeal (which my work is going to match dollar for dollar). Met so many amazing people (vegans tend to be right!), if you want to come along to the next one either watch this blog or become a fan on facebook and look for the updates! If you're in Sydney Vegaroo do one too (where I got the wonderful idea from!)
