Sister of Soul, St Kilda vegetarian restaurant
Puffs (a Harry Potter spin off play) was great fun. The sets and costumes were simple but the jokes were hilarious. You needed to know your Harry Potter to understand them but we all did. I really loved all the little fun exhibitions around the theatre and foyer (like the above). But my favourite moment was probably when Voldemort (an actor in a swimming cap and some tape across his nose) came out into the audience to ask what he might do when he conquered Potter. One little kid yelled out, buy a toupee.
Luna Park, where we went during the recent school holidays. We walked past Luna Park's slightly creepy happy mouth and past some street art to find a seat in Sister of Soul where we looked out upon both.
Wheras I would be keen to return to Sister of Soul. We had a great spread of starters and really enjoyed our curries. I would love to go back to try more because a vegetarian restaurant is always a tyranny of choice. It was great to eat meals full of lots of flavour and vegies. If only we lived closer, I would be back for the breakfast menu.
The latter sounded particularly appealing with a warming combo of apple cider, orange juice and spiced sugar syrup and dusted with cinnamon. Next time!
Marinated and lightly spiced tofu skewers served with nori, a japanese side salad, a goma dressing and fresh ginger". She told me it was not at all spicy. As soon as I tasted it I begged to differ. It was a bit spicy for me but way too spicy for Sylvia. When I pointed this out, our waitress was happy to swap it for a bowl of potato fries ($8).
Perusing the starters was too tempting and I also ordered some polenta jenga ($10). This came on a slice of cauliflower puree with some sage and cashew parmesan. I think this was my favourite dish. The polenta chips were great with the really tasty cauliflower puree. You know it is good when you walk away dreaming of the taste and wondering how to reproduce it.
This curry absolutely defeated me. It was huge. I found it odd that both E's and my curry came without rice or roti so that we had to pay extra for them. I didn't get through my rice and ended up sharing it with E. My curry was lovely but it was too much to have this curry as well as some starters.
