Ricardo's Cafe, Macquarie

Ricardo's at Jamison Plaza is a popular place for coffee and breakfast/lunch. They have a separate vegan menu, as well as a couple of vegan dessert options on display at the counter. We went at breakfast time and ordered the big breakfast, granola and raw snickers bar. The servings were quite generous, so we left feeling very satisfied. The raw snickers bar was probably big enough for four people. The granola came with fresh fruit and some dollops of what seemed like a vegan lemon butter. Very nice indeed.

Au Lac, Woden

The fabulously successful Au Lac restaurant (Dickson) has recently opened another outlet at the Woden mall, along the strip at Corinna St. The menu looks to be the same all-vegan comprehensive offering of tofu, vegetable and mock meat dishes, with the delicate flavours we have come to enjoy. We popped in for a lunch time special tofu & rice meal, as well as the shredded tofu roll entree. Check their website for location and hours.

Roleee, Braddon

It's taken us forever to try Roleee but we are glad we did. They have a dedicated vegan menu with a number of good options that can be mixed and matched. You can order a roll, salad bowl, rice bowl or roti crunch, with curry and chutney of your choice. There are some other optional add-ons. Personally, I liked the roti crunch because it's a bit like having an oversized samosa for dinner.
We noted that they are having all-you-can-eat vegan feasts on the weekends. We're looking forward to trying that soon.

An Nguyen Vegan, Kingston

What a treat it is to walk down Giles St., Kingston, and see the word vegan prominently displayed. It's all due to the opening of An Nguyen, a fully vegan restaurant in the Vietnamese style. The menu is full of variety, and the dishes we ordered were very satisfying. Further information can be found on their Facebook page.
