Mornin’ merry blogglemen and blogettes! Excuse my little absence, I’ve been all wrapped up (ahem) in the silly season. Twas the month before Christmas, when all through the house …tempeh tantrum was running around like a madwoman trying to get things done. It’s my favourite and busiest time of the year so do excuse me if I don’t manage a weekly post over the next lil’ while.

I haven’t been too busy, however, to fulfil my promise to you, dear readers, to check out the best vegan-friendly fare this fine city has to offer. So a couple of weekends ago I dragged myself out of bed and headed down to the Vegie Bar to do some ‘research’  for you. Do you see how I care?

I have been meaning to get down to Fitzroy early enough to check out Vegie Bar’s breakie menu for a while. For some reason Captain Someone and I struggle to get our act together in time (I had been informed over the phone 11.15 was the cut off for breakie orders) most Sundays. But this time we made it and boy am I glad we did! Because I think I discovered one of Melbourne’s top tofu scrambles! It had me grinnin’ indeed after a disappointing and overpriced t-scram (what?) at Ici a couple of weeks earlier. But I’ll blog about that another time.

I did forget my camera though — um, and I lost my notes afterwards — so do forgive the dodgy iPhone pics and iffy information. It is Christmas after all.

This dish was cheap, hearty, tasty as hell and I enjoyed every juicy (yes, juicy) mouthful. Highlights were the miso and tamari in the sauce, the juicy strips of capsicum and the little squares of roti sprinkled on the top (perfect for someone trying to limit gluten intake).

Captain Someone ordered the Vegan French Toast. It didn’t blow my hair back but it’s a pretty yummy sweet-tooth option. Not sure how they do the ‘egg wash’ but there’s certainly a delicious coating on the bread.

Vegan options: Just these two. For a vegie place they could do with adding a couple more.
Coffee: We didn’t enjoy our coffee actually. It was perfectly made. So it was the beans rather than the barista. Just not our cup of t…erm…coffee.
Soy: Pure Harvest, I think (where did those notes go?)
Moola: The Vegie Bar’s breakie prices are just as super fair as the rest of the menu. I think it was about $13-14 for the tofu and $8-10 for the french toast.
Ear candy: Damn notes.

Have you found a favourite t-scram dispensary in Melbourne?
