the cornish arms - brunswick
Definitely file this under "I can't believe I ate the whole thing".
It was actually super delicious - the crispy, spicy batter was unreal and definitely sated that hankering for KFC batter I always have (I know - why?!?!). The slaw was great - fresh, crsipy and creamy. I could have probably done with only a smidge of dressing as I really needed the raw food to help break down the gluten meat. The wedges were so so, nothing special but not boring either.
I'd be interested to know if The Cornish Arms are making their own fillets - as they could halve the size of them and the meal would still be too much food. All in all for a total, disgusting, vegan, it loosely can be labelled food, pig out it was AWESOME. I still feel shame looking at that photo though. Would I do it again? YES but I would share it with someone else.
The Cornish are getting there I feel (food wise) but they totally winning the vibe. It's a lovely local and this was one of my last meals in Brunswick before I moved so its giving me extra warm and clogged artery fuzzies. I will deffo be back to sample some more of their I can't believe its not food.
BUT CHEEZLY. PLEASE EVERYONE STOP USING TOFFUTTI CHEESE SLICES.
Reader poll: Does anyone ACTUALLY prefer Toffuti slices to Cheezly? This is a genuine question.
