Melbourne - vegan heaven.

So I just got back from my bi-monthly Melbourne trip and it was amazing, as always.
The most vegan-friendly city in this country always ensures that we eat about six meals a day to cram as much goodness in as possible.
This visit was too short to explore and try some new eateries off my list (getting longer all the time) so we just stuck to the ol faithfuls;

Cnr Brunswick Street and Rose Street, Fitzroy
1 x vegan pizza - pumpkin, pine nut, soy cheese, rosemary and olive oil
1 x mushroom pizza minus the cheese and plus garlic

273 Smith Street, Collingwood
1 x pot of AMAZING soy chai
1 x monster vegan breakfast - delicious sourdough grain toast, spinach, grilled spiced tomato, homemade hash brown balls, marinated mushrooms, tasty relish and THE MOST AMAZING SCRAMBLED TOFU I HAVE EVER HAD! It's filled with spices and caramelised onion. Not all shown as Jeff stole a lot of it on his plate as we shared this epic meal.

380 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
1 x Crispy baked brown rice balls with satay sauce (holy CRAP these were amazing)
1 x Moroccan pizza with pumpkin, eggplant, olives, mushroom, onion, sesame seeds etc.
1 x portabello mushroom with a rich onion stew, melted soy cheese and quinoa topped with fresh salad

Corner of Flinders Street and Elizabeth Street (also one in Flinders Street Station and one coming soon to Fitzroy!)
Over multiple visits we had;
1,000,000,000 x chips
1 x mini parma burger with napoli, vegan chicken, bacon and cheese
many x original burger - lettuce, mustard, pickles, vegan beef, cheese, mayo and onion
1 x hot dog with mustard, ketchup, pickles, onion and vegan sausage

25 Tattersalls Lane, Melbourne CBD
1 x serve of 20 steamed veggie dumplings
1 x serve of 20 pan fried veggie dumplings (both serves only $6.80ea - BARGAIN!)

Kitchen of Mai
Mai is my friend (and an amazing vegan baker) and does not have an address, sorry!
1 x orange and poppy seed cupcake
About half a cake of apple tea cake - SO. GOOD.

Melbourne - get in it.
