We discovered Golden Lotus in the Newtown neighborhood of Sydney, aptly called Vegantown. If you stroll along King Street, you’ll find a number of vegan options, and this all-vegan Vietnamese restaurant is well worth checking out.

The restaurant has a lovely casual atmosphere, and as always, it’s fantastic to be in an all-vegan place where you can order anything from the menu without having to ask a lot of questions.

We began with “chicken” satay skewers, which were perfectly cooked — crispy on the outside and tender on the inside — and smothered with peanut sauce.

There were so many good things on the menu, it was hard to decide. Ultimately we went for the lemongrass “chicken,” accompanied by brown rice, which was a little crispy on the outside and bursting with lemongrass.

We also sampled assorted veggies with “chicken” on a hot plate, which had a lovely garlicky sauce.

Golden Lotus is one of many fantastic restaurants in Vegantown — and we recommend it highly when you’re in Sydney. Learn more here.
