Table service is provided and everyone was very friendly. We ordered some coffee’s ($3.50) to start with and they tasted great. Now for the food... The starters included Samosa ($2.90) and Gyoza Dumplings ($6.50). The Vegie Bar has a reputation for huge portions so we skipped the starters this time. I was tempted by the Mee Goreng ($15.00) and the Tofu burger on a chia bun ($9.00). I finally decided to go with a vegan option: a regular size Moroccan Pizza ($12.50). An infusion of fresh tomato and hommus base, topped with mushrooms, roasted pumpkin, eggplant, red capsicum, olives, and finished with toasted sesame seeds. It had a beautifully thin base and was extremely delicious. I’m glad I went for a vegan option for a change.
My friend chose the Mexican Burrito ($15.00): tortilla bread with refried kidney beans, spinach, onion, and mushrooms, served with rice and topped with melted cheese, chilli, sour cream and guacamole. Corn chips also appeared on the plate. My friend loved it but it was massive and couldn’t eat it all. I had to help a little bit...
The raw cakes were intriguing but we didn’t have any room left for a sweet. This place is seriously great value and I can’t wait to come back.
