After our Writing about Animals seminar at the University of Sydney, we went to Vegan’s Choice in Sydney’s Newtown neighborhood.
This small, cozy restaurant features myriad Asian dishes using mock meats, which are delicious if a bit awkward (it’s hard to order “vegetarian shark fin soup” even when you know it’s vegan).
We began with spinach dumplings, which were nothing short of amazing.
The crispy chick’n was gorgeous with lovely spices.
And the wonton soup, brimming with vegetables and vegan wontons, was delicious and filling.
We also sampled a wanton soup that included tofu and just about every mock meat on the menu, from chick’n to vegan squid.
Our only mistake was not saving room for dessert! Vegan’s Choice has several flavors of ice cream, as well as a beautiful assortment of pastries and tarts. (We will not make this mistake next time.)
Not only was this a wonderful meal for vegans, but it’s the perfect restaurant to visit with omnivores, who won’t miss anything at all with all the offerings on this menu.
