Dining out adventures.

Yep so my friend from the north has been down for a week... cue epic binge eating nom fest. Have hardly stepped inside my kitchen for days but MAN life has been tasty. I tend to stick to the favorites but they're favorites for a reason damn it. Below are the reasons you will find me at the gym before the sun is up, every day, from now on.

Yep, as per almost every weekend, I was involved with Las Vegan. Sadness descended after I spent the whole car ride talking about how AMAZE the pepperoni calzones with chips are to find out they're a lunch time thing... I LIKE PEPPERONI CALZONES WITH CHIPS FOR BREAKFAST and I'm not ashamed. Anyways sadness was dulled with fantastic big breakfast (olive sourdough, house beans, shrooms, avo and TEMPACON). Karly got the breakfast burrito which is basically everything I ate but rolled up. Naturally we needed to share a serve of sour cherry pancakes also. For $9, I can't not.

Fig slice from Wide Open Road - you're doing it right.

Sunday night was a pretty epic fail. It ended okay but the stars did not align the way I'd planned. I was super pumped to show my friend the wonders of Munsterhaus as it was basically invented for her. They were closed. On to Veggie Bar, always a sure thing. Actually a one hour wait = no. Alright, Yong it is, I guess they ARE delicious. Oh you're randomly closed for renovations tonight Yong? WELL STUFF YOU! Feeling quite devo at this point, we walked down to Madame K which I'd heard mixed reviews of. Food was said to be good but it's a bit expensive. Reviews were correct, food was okay, prices were high. Next time I'm hoping Munsterhaus, Veggie Bar or Yong will feed me.

Behold the mouthgasms of Cornish. Chicken, bacon and cheese burger with chips, eggplant chips with vegan mayo, insane cripsy duck BLT of Jeff's dreams and finished off with THE BEST COOKIES AND CREAM CHEESECAKE with icecream!

Wonderbao vego pack - $8 WIN. Veggie BBQ bun, open style crispy tofu bun and sweet bean bun. Wonderbao are reliably perfect.

Laksa King, naturally. Vegan laksa soup with rice noodles, bok choy, broccoli, shrooms, eggplant, squash, snow peas, fried onions and tofu puffs!

A Minor Place is Wide Open Road's little sister cafe and I like her WAY MORE. Better vegan options and so many less dollars needed. This amazing breakfast of sourdough, rocket, avo and white beans with dukkah is only $13 and I need it every day of my life. Wide Open Road only offer one hot dish and it's closer to $17 - dislike.

I refuse to let a single interstate vegan guest leave without faceplanting into Berrissimo's chocolate mousse frozen yoghurt. Fresh strawberries and coconut on top = correct.
