Vege 2 Go

Cindy has already beaten me with a review of this brand new restaurant, so for a proper review go there.

Vege2Go is pretty close to my house, so I was super excited to find a veg restaurant in East Brunswick. So much so that I sampled it when I was super poor by putting it on my credit card. I decided to surprise Mr T with take away food. The food all seems to be healthy home cooked Italian food with an emphasis on take away. I don't think it's fair to judge it quite yet because I only sampled a few things. But here's my thoughts on the few things that I tried. The salads (beetroot and rice) and the white bean and chard dish were all ok but not amazing.

The lentil soup was my favourite. It doesn't look tasty, but it was full of flavour and just the right amount of salt/stock.

I also sampled the vegan calzone and the vegan choc raspberry cake. The calzone tasted good but was very dry. You could tell the cake was made by non-vegans who might assume that vegan cake has to be different texture wise. The cake tasted good but it's texture was far too rubbery for me.

But I will be back, because it's great option for healthy take away food that doesn't cost too much. Plus I've heard good things about their quinoa dish.

Super Living Expo

I have lots of things to post about but not much time to blog at the moment. But I just wanted to quickly remind you that next sat is the Super Living Expo, which used to be called the Cruelty Free expo. It is held at the Northcote Town Hall. There will be cooking demonstrations, all sorts of stalls including crumbs bakehouse (that make the yummy vegan cakes/muffins that seem to be sold everywhere lately), soul veg (which is an awesome vegan catering company that makes vegan 'cheesecakes'), music from Steve Kilby (from the Church), relaxation and pampering workshops, and much more.

Introducing a new cat friend

This is BB. She is my dad's cat but will be staying with us for a little while my dad moves interstate. The poor thing has had about 12 moves in about 3-4 years since she was born, the last move consisted of 12 hours on a boat. She has only been staying with me for a few hours and has already ate, drank, used her litter tray and become acquainted with my knee. I've also noticed that she wags her tale like a dog when she is happy. I have seen other cats wag their tales but not like this, it's almost violent the way she flicks it around.

I'm trying not to get too attached!
