|Mysore masala dosa|

Daana specialises in South Indian cuisine, and these days is located in the southside suburb of Curtin (formerly at the Acton Westside Village). Vegan items are clearly marked throughout the menu. Popping in for lunch, I ordered the Mysore Masala Dosa – relatively spicy for the western palate – though I suspect Indian people would rate this as mild. It came with chutneys and a lentil/vegetable soup. Everything was fantastic – we're definitely going back.

The Monster Kitchen is the restaurant at Hotel Hotel, New Action, up the wooden stairs from the Palace Cinema. It is a beautiful space to spend some time in. The dinner menu has no items marked as vegan, although it turned out the chips are vegan with no changes. Everything else had to be modified by negotiation with the wait staff. As a result, we suggest arriving before 7pm rush hour. The salad, roast pumpkin and chips were tasty as well-presented. Portion sizes were larger than the photos suggest. However, these days we prefer to go to places that have at least a few dishes marked vegan on the menu. A bit more thought put into the menu could save some hassle for the diners, wait staff and the kitchen staff.
