On my first day back at work after a full week off, I had to spend all day in Fitzroy in meetings. So D took advantage of my location to meet me for lunch. Las Vegan being closed on Mondays, we thought we'd give Soul Food a go.
I recalled being told their lunches weren't great, so I reached for the breakfast menu. I was immediately drawn to the Monster Vegan Brekkie, and lacking anything else that really strongly tempted me, ordered it.
I really liked this! The hash browns were soft in the middle but crunchy on the outside (which I love). The scrambled tofu had this great flavour, I suspect from the caramelised onions. The bread was also pretty amazing, which was unexpected - I'm used to really thick bread being nice but difficult to chew, but this was fantastic.
D ordered the Soup of the Day (always vegan and GF), which was potato and leek. This was good, and came with some nice turkish bread on the side (of which there could have been more). However it was a little bit salty.
Anyway, nice, if not mind-blowing, interlude, before I returned to meetings.
