Las Vegan Bakery / Melbourne
Las Vegan Bakery is a cute little bakery/restaurant that only serves vegan food!
Warm cozy atmosphere, with lots of plants inside for the nature lovers. Vintage/cheap furnishings which adds to the ‘real/authentic’ ethical conscious feeling.
A good selection on the menu, soups, calzones, burritos, burgers and heaps of desserts/cakes.
Soy cappuccino. Meh.
Sloppy Joe Burger, with chips and salad. The burger was tasty and flavorsome. The salad and chips were pretty bland and boring though.
Vegan Nachos with black beans. Pretty good, tasted like normal nachos without the beef and without cheese.
Delicious burrito, flavors exploding out of it. Oily but tasty.
Vegan food is good for you, for animals, and the environment. Las Vegan one of a few vegan restaurants in Melbourne.

Loving Hut / Richmond
The Loving Hut is a famous(vegan famous) international restaurant chain. Located on Victoria Street in Richmond, which has a lot of vietnamese/asian fusion restaurants. They provide a few classic asian dishes with a unique vegan spin.
The ambience and décor of this place is fairly boring. It has a standard cheap asian restaurant feel with the plastic tablecloths and chopsticks/cutlery on table. They need to fix the door too, it didn’t shut properly and a cold breeze was creeping in.
Vegan Chao Kuey Teaw(Malaysian fried thick rice noodles.) was good, it tasted how I expected it to. This use to be one of my favourite dishes when I was younger. My dad use to cook it, and unfortunately this vegan take on the dish didn’t come close to my dads version, but maybe i’m bias.
This vegan take on Thai Red Curry contained lychee’s and dates; as if vegans weren’t creative enough! The lychee gave the curry a surprisingly delicious sweetness and texture. The date flavour was coming through too, which was unique, but eating the date dominated the flavor of the curry, which I didn’t really enjoy. The curry flavour was great, very spicy and flavoursome. I found the red peppers a bit annoying to eat, I asked myself why didn’t the chef cut them up for me, was it because i’m not vegan? I was pleased with the dish, unique, aromatic and tasty.
This was my favourite dish that came out, Assam Eggplant, the vibrant basil flavour was superb. The curry was vibrant and flavoursome and the eggplant was cooked perfectly. The only downside is they had some mock meat in the dish - but it didn’t taste too bad.
Raw lemon and raspberry cheesecake, it was good, but I only got 2 tea spoons.
This fruit salad with ice cream was simply average, and averagely simple. Some fresh fruit (good) and So Good soy ice cream(average). Not an amazing dessert to end the night, neither was the Tiramisu, some foul flavour dominating the dessert(possibly almond essence), and it lacked coffee flavour.
Eating vegan is good for you, and the earth.

Veg Out Time / South Yarra
Veg Out Time is located near the fashion precinct of Melbourne known as Chapel Street. #Fabulosity. Eating vegetarian at least once a week is not only good for your health, but also helps the environment by reducing carbon emissions. This vegetarian chain offers quick vegetarian curries and other canteen style vegetarian food.
I accidentally ordered 2 different tofu curries. Butter tofu (Indian), and Yellow tofu (Thai). They had great flavour in the sauce. I don’t mind tofu but this was too much, tofu overload. I should have been wiser and selected a different dish that was tofu-less, or maybe it was their fault for giving me too much tofu.

Vegie Bar is Fitzroy’s famous vegetarian/vegan restaurant. They have a great selection of international cuisines on the menu, and all dishes are vegetarian so you can have an ethical conscious and a healthy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sorry about the terrible flash photos, the lighting at night time isn’t great for photos!
Vegie Bar has a rustic warm atmosphere combined with the indie Fitzroy vibe. We had to cross our fingers to get a seat, as the place is always full. We were lucky and got offered a seat at the shared bench. Picking a dish was exciting and challenging as there were so many different dishes to choose from!
We decided to get gyoza and sangrias to start. The sangrias were small but flavoursome and had delicious strawberries in them, fairly cheap too. There were three bite sized gyoza’s for the entree. They were steamed, and had two dipping sauces, chilli salsa and the classic soy sauce. They were nice, but I would much prefer to get my dumplings from an asian dumpling house.
As a main I got the gado gado, and Lexie got the vermicelli. The gado gado was pretty much a jungle on a plate. Full of long coriander leaves, sprouts, tofu, pumpkin, red pepper, cauliflower, peanuts, zuccini and i’m sure i’ve missed a vegetable in there some how. It came with peanut sauce which added some flavour to the dish. Apart from the sauce, the dish was pretty one-dimensional, just a mountain of steamed/fresh veggies. Lexies vermicilli had a great flavour in comparison. Food envy, again. The vermicelli was well cooked, and had a beautiful light flavour and fresh ingredients.
My previous visits, I had a pizza and mee goreng, which I was much more satisfied. With such a variety of cuisines available, choose your dish carefully. Reasonable pricing and great vibe, so can’t complain. This is a great place to come with friends, or a date, or a date with friends… even if you’re not vegetarian.
