Our love for Bombay is increasing

Return visit Sometimes you can just get a craving for good Indian food, especially if you don’t eat meat. Indian food always has grea vegetarian dishes. Our absolute favourite is Palak Paneer (spinach and cottage cheese).  We could not help but go back to Bombay Affair because it is local, friendly and great value. Here’s…

Coco and charcoal

It was just after the new year had hit and we thought a trip to somewhere healthy was in order. As we love Instagram for finding new restaurants we had come across a hidden away little place that serves coco soft-whip, goji and other delights. This place is located on the Gold Coast, Australia in…

Let’s try something with a touch of spice

We were wondering where to eat and fancied something a little spicy and suitable for vegetarians. After a bit of a search we settled on Bombay Affair, located in Southport, Queensland.  One of the reasons we love Indian food is that it really does provide the very best options for vegetarians. The first appetiser that…

Tofu paradise

One of the most amazing things about Japan and especially Kyoto is the wonderful tofu they produce. “We would never make tofu just to satisfy a passing taste; our objective is to offer a simple and casual tofu cuisine to be enjoyed over the long term.” But of course it is not just the production…

Kenny’s Malay Kitchen

It was a relatively cold and wintry night, so we felt like something spicy.

Want the latest scoop on where to get vegetarian food on the Coast?

This week we checked out Cardamom Pod at Ferry Road. It was just a quick trip as it was before our yoga class. We ordered some coffees and decided to share an Apple Pie with Green Matcha Ice Cream. The place was buzzing even though it just opened a couple of days ago. We took the opportunity to take…

Savoury Ricotta Tart – Recipe from Ottolenghi

Bev is a big fan of Yotam Ottolenghi, who does a lot of vegetarian recipes. She has been to his London restaurant (Nopi) and is the proud owner of his cookbook – Plenty! Bev felt inspired to make his ricotta tart since the tart looks great, tastes good (she’s made it before) and it has a great contrast…

Xi’an Famous Food, Surfers Paradise, GC

It was a gorgeous sunny day and the blue sky over Surfers Paradise Beach really set off the landscape. We decided to have a bowl of noodles at an authentic northern Chinese noodle bar – Xi’an Famous Food. We opted for the vegetarian option – noodles with chili and sesame sauce. It’s a cold dish…
