An interesting dish I had recently before a burlesque show. Crispy pastry filled with bbq jackfruit and served with a vegan ‘ash aioli’. When I commented on how vegan-friendly the menu was, I was told that about half the more

Some of the best mock meat I’ve had and apparently one of the most popular dishes on their menu. This was incredibly crispy and flavourful, but there were also some larger, more tender pieces. Our omnivore friends went back more

Lentil as Anything is vegan and is ‘pay as you can’. It provides free meals without question to those who cannot pay. When I’m there, I like to #payitforward to ensure that this business is viable for years to come! Not more

There are sandwiches and then there are ~👑 sandwiches 👑 ~. This was a ~ 👑 sandwich 👑 ~. It had vegan mozzarella, broccoli rabe, chargrilled red peppers, vegan aioli, and breaded and fried eggplant strips. I added some more

The Humble Vegan

Damn right I will! My friend got me this 😊 It wasn’t the tastiest chocolate I’ve had, but it was still yum. I’m always happy to discuss veganism and the fact that a better world for animals is a better world for all of more

itsjustmel Nice! I'd be happy to talk about it too, but I find no one ever asks! Maybe they're too afraid to, lol. But seriously, I don't think I've ever been asked about it, other than the usual where do you get protein and don't you miss meat 🙄 Nothing about the philosophy itself or any of the substantive topics. Do people ask you about it? I'm genuinely curious!2 likesReply
alxvgnmelb I also find that almost nobody asks! I definitely think it’s because deep down, people know they’d be forced into defending the indefensible, especially given the ubiquity of factory farms. I get fairly creative with how I steer a conversation in the direction of veganism lol. For example, when discussing things like COVID, antibiotic resistance, environmental degradation etc., I’ll always acknowledge (where appropriate) how such issues are deeply linked to animal exploitation etc. I just plant seeds where I can...and I don’t always wait for an invitation to do so hehe. I also just discuss how awesome animals are and how they deserve so much more respect than they get. Reply
itsjustmel You sound like a pro! I like the idea of planting seeds but I'm still working on doing it in a subtle way, I'll have to try your technique and just drop bits of info into the conversation. It has been a really interesting experience from a social perspective. I had not expected people to just freeze up at the mention of veganism. In some ways it's a bit disappointing when no one asks questions, I have so much information I want to share lol! Maybe it's an Aus thing, people here seem to avoid confrontation at all costs (or at least in my immediate circles). Thanks heaps for the reply! 😊🤗1 likeReply
alxvgnmelb Avoiding confrontation at all costs is indeed the Aussie way lol ;) That said, more and more of us are going vegan every day...so the message is getting out there - yay 🌱❤️Reply

As the guy next to us at the deli said, ‘sometimes you just need a fat vegan sandwich’. Loaded with ‘salami’, ‘pepperoni’, basil, rocket, olives, roasted red pepper and cheeze...this answered the call. #veganisnotscary #thefutureisvegan

Yay! Foods

Happiness is a good vegan cheese board. This marinated feta is incredible. Multiple omnis have told me they prefer it to the dairy alternative (win!). Melt in your mouth feta, marinated in rosemary and garlic infused oil more

I’m not a big drinker but mum got these for me to have at an Xmas function because they’re vegan (thanks mum!). I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this product - light and refreshing and great on a hot evening. Not too more

Throwback to some of the most delicious vegan food i’ve ever eaten. This box of pure goodness was from Vegan Now in Chicago, Illinois. Loved their scramble and the biscuit and the breaded cauliflower and broccoli...in other more

alxvgnmelb It really is so good! I believe this is a branch of Soul Vegetarian (which seems like an amazing institution), so if this location is still closed, you may have more luck at their other locations :)1 likeReply
