Our samosas are 100% vegan but you must advise you want vegan as we usually top them with yoghurt. We are open to suggestions for quick and easy to make Vegan menu items.

I’m the owner of Stripey Sundae and the guy that makes everything here. I’ve been really impressed with the positive response you all have given me with the vegan ice creams, so I’d like to try doing a little more and doing vegan baked goods too.
I’ve just done a batch of vegan brownies, and I’m looking for suggestions of what else you think would go well with vegan ice cream?
Glen aka taco:)

Karen Spires: It’s DELICIOUS! And really filling! It’s a regular item on the menu along with a vegan salad and a vegan burger. The hot chips are to die for as well!

There are many places in Canberra that offer burgers- but hidden away on Mort Street- Burger Hero gives vegans a few delicious options.
You can either “build your own” or order off a set menu. The set menu has the “Sweet Vegan” burger which is a sweet potato & couscous patty, lettuce, tomato, spanish onion with dairy free aioli. The “build your own” starts with the same patty, but with options such as roast peppers, beetroot, zuchinni, eggplant, pickles, avocado and dairy free aioli. You do need to specify that you’d like a dairy free bun (which is also gluten free). They have both regular and sweet potato fries.

Description by Grill’d: For Veg and Veg 2.0’s, we’re meating [hmmm] you more than half way with the Veggie Vitality burger: a beetroot, sweet potato, spinach and quinoa patty, layered with avo, pineapple, carrot and cos lettuce – just coz. You can thank nutritionist Lola Berry for that one, plus a few more in the Loved by Lola menu edit.
If you are on a computer, you can read more Vegan ACT group posts about Grill’d here.
Verdict: We recommend you ask for tomato relish to have in this yummy and very filling burger. We also reckon the avocado and pineapple are key flavours in this burger so if you aren’t a fan of them both then try them with both or get something else :). You also might like to annotate the parts of their paper menus mentioning their ‘ethical’ meat by writing ‘See: aussiefarms.org.au’ then pop them back in the menu box :).
Good news!: Grill’d seem to have rebranded and removed their dodgy signs featuring a photo of a cow with a “HELLO My name is Delicious” sticker over it as discussed here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/VeganACT/permalink/1653154228292488/

Jyoti: “Good to see more vegan food like this appearing on the Food Coop menu. Why not encourage them by letting the Coop know on their page you like what they’re doing.”

I had the only vegan main option, the Veg Head burger with fries and Pâtissez special sauce:
“Herby chickpea, corn & sweet potato patty, charred zucchini, roast capsicum, grilled eggplant, roasted red pepper, vegan aioli, MINUS the house marinated fetta cheese.”
Damn, it was the best vegan burger I’ve had (in case my Mum’s reading, it’s not as good as your bean-patty one! But if you’re not reading, then it’s the best). Like, even better than the one at Red Lime Shack in Adelaide. It was so good. I did ask the Pâtissez staff a lot of questions, and confirmed that the chips were fried in cottonseed oil, and that the aioli is done on a soy base (not sure if this is a fortified type, though). Staff were obliging, but I think that there needs to be a quick FAQ or better team-briefing, given that many people with allergies will often opt for the vegan menu item and have questions.
