Brodburger, Kingston

It has taken us a while to get around to visiting Brodburger, one of the most widely reviewed and blogged food outlets in Canberra. The buzz was that the vegan burger was pretty good, so we dropped in after visiting the Kingston Bus Depot Markets. Arriving before 12pm meant that our wait was relatively short at 20 minutes. Notably, the burger has no patty as such, just a delicious stack of marinated and grilled vegetables with a spicy sauce and garlicky aioli. Thankfully, as the vegan option is listed on the menu, there is no explaining to do. Just order and enjoy.

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.
