In honour of World Vegan Day today, MSB is venturing out to Monk . . .
If I was forced to choose one cafe in Melbourne where I was restricted to for the rest of my life, it would be this one.
To be honest, we weren’t hungry in the slightest, but you can’t go to Monk and not eat, so we had no other choice but to have a second breakfast, naturally. We ordered the umami mushrooms with polenta.
Slow roasted king oyster, shitake, oyster & swiss brown mushrooms on a house made pumpkin, spinach & sun dried tomato polenta bread. Served w/ goats cheese, thyme & red chile oil…
Super rich and delicious.. I am glad we shared!
My photo phobia was rampant again so no food porn, sorry guys. Just believe me when I say it was pretty.
Can’t fault the coffee, can’t fault the service, and the menu is like nothing else.
Monk Bodhi Dharma is a speciality coffee house and pride themselves on beautifully made raw vegan and vegetarian food. There is always something different popping up on the menu and their creativity really does amaze me. Don’t let the vegetarian niche put you off all you carnivores out there, i promise you, you won’t be let down.
(PS –> If you take my advice and venture out there, the place is a bit hard to find if you’re a newcomer…you need to go BEHIND the main shops away from the street..and it’s tucked away all inconspicuously. )
So happy World Vegan Day friends! Go eat some lentils. x
