melbourne miscellany

And that's it for restaurant blogging! There are heaps of places we missed, but D + I are back in Melbourne in two weeks, so if you have any ideas (or are an awesome melbourne veg blogger who wants to have a veg party), let me know...

I dropped by Friends of the Earth when D was chillaxing with a work colleague; I picked up aduki's vegan shopping guide and 'from little things big things grow' illustrated by kids of the Gurinji, and I am totally going to drop back in the next chance I get. All sorts of activist stuff and some great books and they also do meals, which I am keen to try.

J, D and I wandered in to the Radical Grocery, where I picked up some raw chocolate, as I've never tried it before. I also picked up aduki's soup book, which I noticed is authored by the people at Las Vegan. It looks pretty great (and I've already tried one recipe and it was delicious). If I lived in Melbourne I would totally have been stocking my freezer, for serious.

In other news, Lush no longer sells vegan lip balm! Super disappointing.

Did you make it to Soul Mama at the St Kilda Sea Baths? Best ever. Oh my god. So good. So many choices. And the desserts...

Yeah, let's rustle up a veg bloggers' party! Email me the dates you're available in Melbourne and I'll try to set a date with the Melbourne Vegan Potluck crew.

Cindy I just emailed you. :o)

Ricki, Melbourne isn't super close to Perth (it's still a four hour flight) but it's close enough.

I highly recommend Natural Tucker on Nicholson St for a vegan tofu pie, carrot cake, muesli slice and a sensational cookie, not to mention the brilliant sourdough.
Thanks for a great Blog,
Craig

Hi Craig, Thanks for the recommendation! I am a bit obsessed with pies, so I will check them out!
