Smith St Lunches

I am in Hobart right now, it’s not the most vegan friendly place on earth, but good food can be found, which I will post about later. At the moment I miss the food in Melbourne, so I will post about the last two lunches I had there before I left.

Friends of the Earth

For $6 between 12 and 4, for lunch is a delicious selection of healthy, organic dishes, including a variety of salads which are mostly vegan. When I went, there was a quinoa, orange and carrot salad which was especially nice. Friends of the Earth is a not for profit organisation doing important work around the world.

312 Smith St, Collingwood
They also serve coffees and cakes from 10-6, along with bulk wholefoods and natural health products.

Also on Smith St is a place where everything is vegan. I walk out of this cafe feeling healthy every time and really wish they had better opening hours. Las Vegan Nirvana make an excellent schnitzel burger with organic salad and mayonnaise. Their tofu and tempeh salad with satay sauce is also very good, as is the chili bean calzone. They make delicious muffins and I really should have tried more from their menu, but the burger keeps bringing me back, probably the best fake meat in Melbourne, it tastes much healthier than the other stuff out there.

Las Vegan Nirvana are open from 11-4 I think, Tuesday to Friday. They are at 22 Smith St, and lunch is usually around $8.50.

Melbourne Loses a Great Chef

Forest Mushroom Risotto

Special vegan forest mushroom risotto, made by Jessika. This was full of flavour and perfectly cooked, I hope she will cook for me again someday.
