Since we got in to Sydney so late on Thursday night, Andy and I planned ahead and brought some food down with us. And we had cereal in our room for breakfast on Friday morning, so our first meal out was lunch on Friday. We went to probably the best vegan place in Sydney:
Just kidding (I am so hilarious). We did not go there, but we did try to get into the Imax to see Avatar on Friday only to find it was sold out. Where we did eat was described to me several years ago as the best vegan place in Australia: Mother Chu's Vegetarian Kitchen.
We were a little overwhelmed by the menu -- pages and pages to choose from is hard to handle when you are used to a small handful of veganisable menu items. We finally decided on Tempura with Salad...
...and Fried Noodles with Vegetables and Gluten (I think that's what it was called).
Both were good, but not great. The food was hot, fresh, and flavourful, but I've had better vegan asian food. It is highly likely that we chose two dishes that were underwhelming, as there were so very many choices. We both agreed that this was good food, but nothing super special. However, I appreciated it more than a standard Asian restaurant for the sheer volume of choices on offer.
