Anytime is ice cream time and when the girlies suggested we check out Black Waffle. What we didn’t know was that it serves up vegan ice cream. Now, usually we run from the hills when something is vegan because I adore my dairy despite being lactose intolerant. BUT when the girlies said it’s pretty darn good, I had to check it out myself.
The stooges and I are massive fans of Japanese food, in particular gyozas. When we heard that Chotto Motto are serving gyozas, we had to check it out. Located in Collingwood, just off the main road, there’s plenty of free parking around the area if you go to the side streets. Inside the restaurant, it was filled with cool retro decor including a vending machine to get your drinkies.
Did someone say donuts? The Oakleigh Doughnut Co did. Located smack bang in the busy street of Portman Street sits a bright and
When you’re meeting up with a group and there’s someone that’s vegan, we thought we would cater to them and check out a vegan restaurant so they can pick whatever they want to eat. On Nicholson street sits a quiet vegan eatery called Billy and Lucy. Billy and Lucy, on the outside it looks old and humble but inside, it’s
Tahina Bar in Northcote has been around for about 3 years now and they’ve opened up another one on Brunswick Street in busy Fitzroy. Tahina serves up Israeli vegetarian street food along with superfood smoothies and wholesome ingredients.

A date with the girlies meant time to check out a new eatery. Since we were slowly trying to go meat free, I suggested Vegie Hut in Boxhill. This place gets super busy so make sure you make a reservation and parking is quite difficult so perhaps park a bit further away and walk in. Now, back to business, walking inside we were greeted by friendly staff and was shown to our table. Settling in, we started to flick through the menu and decided on what we were getting.
Mr & Mrs Tequila were slowly becoming vegan and wanted to catch up over vegan food at V Series located in Kew. This is located right next to a car park so there were plenty of parking. We made a booking for 6:30PM but arrived super early and there wasn’t anyone there yet so we got in, sat down and started ordering.
Mr & Mrs Anderson a new cafe which opened in December 2016 which makes it quite fresh on the blockin Hawthorn East. With a focus on sustainability and the majority of produce that is used are from their farm in Moe and straight onto the plate in the cafe. What’s even more impressive? The chef comes from Michelin starred restaurants and have worked in amazing Australian eateries including Attica, 3 bags full and circa just to name a few. The chef is bringing fine dining to cafes and it definitely shows in Mr & Mrs Anderson.
Healthy eating has been creeping up slowly and slowly on my preference when looking for food. Spiral Beans in Preston has ticked that box and has been opened since November 2016 (only a month or so) and is the new and improved version of Disco Beans. Spiral Beans offers whole food in their most natural state limiting the processed and refined elements. Spiral Beans offers contemporary cooking methods with traditional Japanese flavours.
