Kingsland Restaurant, Dickson (part 4)

The salt and pepper tofu at Kingsland is vegan comfort food at its best. The recipe has been improved over time, incorporating some onion for extra flavour. There aren't many vegetables served with it, so it's best served with another meal that has more vegies included (and rice of course). 

The sweet corn patties are listed as an entrée and are a nice addition to any meal. They are served with a sweet plum sauce.

These two are some of the items that we order regularly at the restaurant.

Banana Leaf, Civic

The Banana Leaf restaurant specialises in Sri Lankan cuisine and occupies a very prominent position in City Walk opposite the Canberra Centre. There are a few interesting mains on the menu that can be made vegan. What's more, the staff were very helpful in explaining the options to us.

The vegan version of the 'kottu roti' consisted of roti bread strips served with vegetables and lentil curry, along with tamarind and chilli sauce. The 'string hoppers' had various curries, coconut sambal and chutney served with rice noodles. Both were quite filling and tasty. We also had a side salad tossed with mango vinaigrette. Unfortunately there were no dessert options, however we were told that they can prepare something without using animal products if given some advance notice. The prices here are higher than for our usual vegan fare - this may be a consideration if you're on a tight budget.
