This is officially my favourite vegetarian restaurant - I actually don't think I need to eat meat anymore because the chef is THAT good with sauces, spices & balancing flavours so dishes are exciting and gastronomically stimulating!

Below: I ordered the mee goreng - standard hokkien noodle with chilli sauce and stirfry combined - NOT. It sure looks the part, but the flavour is a little different (slighty citrus/tangy because pineapple has been used) and denser, a very impressive improvement on its meat counterpart. Absoultely divine...

Above: Laksa with tofu & vegies

Below: Roti Chanai - a stretchy pastry with curry dipping sauce

Below: Fried riceI am in love with this place - thoughtfully decorated with Eastern philosophy scattered throughout the interior, a really warm & homely feel. It's not the easiest place to get to, but the foodgasm is worth it, and the prices are also a selling point (under $10 for a lunch with drink!)

One of my top 3 recommended restaurants in Melbourne!
