factory, west brunswick

This morning, Lisa, Danni and I went for some mid-morning squash playing. It was pretty amazing, by which I mean, we were all pretty bad, so it was a good thing noted squash player Michael was waylaid and unable to join us.

Tired and enthusiastic, after an hour of some missing the ballawesome squash playing we adjourned to Factory, just down the road. I'd previously only sampled their hot chocolate (perfectly serviceable), but thanks to a review by SJ I knew that there was some scrambled tofu on the menu.

In fact, it was the only vegan thing on the menu, so all three of us ordered it. This is listed as the vegan big brekkie, a scrambled tofu with mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes in a lime and soy reduction, with a little bit of bread on the side.

I will confess, I pictured something a little more tofu+bread with tomatoes etc on the side, but this was good too! The tofu was very liquidy, and I enjoyed dipping my bread in to the liquid. The flavour was nice, though it could have been enhanced with something. Maybe some chilli, maybe some soy sauce.

Anyway, it was a perfectly fine breakfast, nothing too exciting but okay for an easy sunday morning, and the service was quite good, too. Would return again, quite possible as we are trying to play squash every sunday morning! (although maybe we should use this opportunity to try the famous ray's...)

Thanks for keeping an eye out for g/f options. I'm always looking for more breaky options that I can eat.
