E and Sylvia were off to see the Sponge Bob Square Pants movie but I couldn't bear to waste my precious movie hours on the little twerp (Spongebob not Sylvia). As there was nothing else on at the movies to interest me I set off to enjoy myself in the city.
childhood story and Bill on Mr Squiggle. Where one building is saved, another is demolished to make way to for new developments.
My first destination however was Raw Trader. I have been curious about this raw cafe for some time. It is not that I am a big raw food enthusiast but I love vegan desserts and am always interested to see raw food on other blogs.
few raw desserts that I have made at home, I have never warmed to coconut oil in large amounts. I found the caramel layer tasted too much of dates and the fudge layer tasted too much of coconut oil.
Sutherland Street where Raw Trader resides, is a narrow little back street with heritage bluestone walls and a critical mass of interesting cafes. I made a mental note to return there as I wandered away past the street art and back into the bustle of Elizabeth Street.
Snag Stand. They had seven options for the vegetarian hot dog which was impressive and seems more than when I wrote about Snag Stand three years ago. I had Australia Fare and E had the American Classic. Sylvia had The Kid (vegetarianised). And we shared chips. It was very nice (albeit lacking in vegetables).
Sylvia didn't want to hold Rosie so I let her put her in the kids highchair. Because you need two hands to eat a hot dog. I just hope no children had to sit on their parent's lap because Rosie hogged the highchair.
We had fun waiting. Sylvia is very interesting in reading anything that stands still and Rosie looks so real that another passenger struck up a conversation with us about believing that Rosie was my tiny baby.
