Kippax Curry House, Holt

Kippax Curry House, opposite the main Kippax shops, serves Fijian-style curry. They have gone to some effort to develop a vegan section on the menu, and for that we are very grateful. The food is beautifully prepared. A special mention for the pumpkin curry which had a sweet roasted flavour.

Saluna, Newcastle

On a visit to Newcastle we had these delicious vegan items at Saluna in King St. There were several vegan options on the menu and the specials board. Vegan cakes are also available. Newcastle's CBD seems to be much more lively than it was a few years ago, and it's great to know that we can get food like this. I have a feeling we'll be going back.

Sukothai, Yarralumla

This Thai restaurant can be found at the Yarralumla shops at the very end of a short arcade. It's actually rather spacious inside. There are several tofu dishes on the menu, but as is usual for many restaurants, you need to be clear that you don't eat seafood products and so on. After establishing this, the people at Sukothai are happy to accommodate, and they do understand the meaning of the word 'vegan'. Lunches I've had include a beautiful tofu yellow curry, and a spicy chilli-basil tofu stiry fry noodle dish. They told me that it can take longer to prepare vegan dishes, so if you are coming with a large party of people you might like to pre-order. One last thing: ask for mild chilli unless you are accustomed to the hot spiciness of authentic Thai food.

Sweet Bones Bakery Cafe, Braddon

Although we have blogged Sweet Bones before, the menu has evolved much since then and we thought it was worth a revisit to talk about two of our favourite dishes. The Italian tempeh sandwich comes with olive bread, salad, pickles and tasty flavoured tempeh. If you haven't tried tempeh before, we encourage you to give it a go, as the Sweet Bones people have really excelled on this one.

The nachos mountain is a great choice when you have a big hunger to fill. It is packed with interesting flavours -- chillies, olives, corn and beans with vegan sour cream & cheeses, on a large bed of corn chips. The chips are the Mission brand and are free of palm oil.

Sweet Bones cafe has moved to new premises. The entrance is now on Elouera St, close to the roundabout on Lonsdale. They now have a printed menu, which is a great improvement over the blackboard, and it has a number of new items that we can't wait to try.
