Daana, Curtin

On our second visit to Daana, we ordered the black eyed peas curry, lentil dumplings, plain uttapam, and vegan masala dosa. Service is the friendliest we have seen anywhere, and all dishes were beautifully prepared.

Binny's Kathitto, Braddon

Binny's Kathitto specialises in Indian street food. Here you can get vegan Dosa, or choose from a good selection of other items marked on the menu. Pictured here are the lentil pancakes (uttapam) and samosa. Highly satisfactory!

Bonta Vera, Newcastle

The story of Bonta Vera cafe is an inspiring one that is worth reading about and has been covered elsewhere. We popped into the locality of Minmi (now apparently part of Newcastle -- but in my youth was a little town on the way to Sydney) for dinner at this lovely cafe inside the old courthouse. The menu states in clear terms that no animal products are used on the premises.

Pictured is the chipotle burger with bean patty and a tasty mix of flavours. Together with corn chips and vegan cheese it is a combination that works surprisingly well. Probably a chilli bowl with corn chips and guacamole would have sufficed for me, but it is nice to try this lavish version.

Some amazing cakes are also available, and we will try these on our next visit.

Daana, Curtin

Daana specialises in South Indian cuisine, and these days is located in the southside suburb of Curtin (formerly at the Acton Westside Village). Vegan items are clearly marked throughout the menu. Popping in for lunch, I ordered the Mysore Masala Dosa – relatively spicy for the western palate – though I suspect Indian people would rate this as mild. It came with chutneys and a lentil/vegetable soup. Everything was fantastic – we're definitely going back.
