Brunch At Sister Of Soul In St Kilda

Sister of Soul St Kilda

I’ve been to Sister Of Soul a few times now and I’ve previously blogged about a lunch visit. This time, I was in the area around brunch time so my son and I decided to go in to check out the morning menu. The vegetarian/vegan menu for the morning hours looked just as good as the lunch/dinner menu.

After a little stress trying to navigate Acland Street by foot with the current roadworks going on, we nabbed a window seat (that’s my doing, light for photos and all). I’m on a bit of a mission now to try all the different flavoured lattes around town (you know… beetroot, blue algae, etc) and so I ordered the Spiced Carrot Latte with almond milk (around $6.50 from memory). I couldn’t take a photo of the carrotyness, but I did pick up a carroty flavour and will try to replicate this at home cos it was pretty good.

Arthur will get pancakes anywhere anytime so he got the Buckwheat and Banana Pancake ($16.50) which was topped with strawberries, banana, poached pear, nut crumble and a chocolate sauce. He pretty much scraped off the nut crumble and pear (they’re not his thing) so of course I ate those for him. ¬†It was nice, not very sweet (which is my preference) but a little pricey for a single pancake in my humble opin’ despite being slightly larger than the average size pancakes most places serve.

The Big Vegan ($17.50) stood out for me: smashed avocado, marinated tofu topped with a tomato, corn and coriander salsa, wilted spinach, rosemary potato rosti, plum dipping sauce and multigrain toast. There was a decent amount of avocado for both pieces of toast and overall I enjoyed everything on the plate.

Service was fast and friendly as with previous visits. There are a few more nice looking meals on the menu I’d like to try. St. Kilda isn’t an area I visit often but when I do, it involves a bit of public transport adventuring. So it’s pretty nice to be confident that if I end up at Sister of Soul, I can unwind a bit and enjoy a good meal (and people watch by the window).

Late Lunch At Sister Of Soul, St Kilda

Sister of Soul, St. Kilda

I visited Sister of Soul some months ago but never blogged about it because I hadn’t taken photos (I was without my camera because I ate there before a concert at the Palais Theatre). This week I was able to go back for another meal and naturally, here I am to tell you about it ūüôā

Sister of Soul provide vegetarian and vegan food, as well as some raw and gluten free meals. There are also options for people who don’t eat garlic or onion. The breakfast menu looks pretty fab!

I enjoyed my meal last time (the Rasavangy eggplant¬†curry, $17.50) but my personal rule is that I never order the same meal twice when there’s the rest of the menu to explore. I was with Arthur so we ordered the rice balls with satay sauce ($9.50) which were really good. Arthur unfortunately dropped half a rice ball down his sleeve and despite taking his jacket off, we couldn’t find it. It wasn’t on the floor or seat either. That happened to me once with a dumpling and I later found it inside my boot:

Arthur ordered the potato fries ($8.00). I would say I’m pretty fussy about chips, I mean when you get rank chips it hurts. These were really good chips, seasoned with rosemary and sea salt.

For my main, I ordered the vegan option of the Big Burrito ($17.00), though it seemed that the vegan option was just removing the cheese. The filling was red quinoa, spinach, beans and finely chopped veggies served with a salad, salsa and guacamole. I find it hard to resist a burrito with healthy ingredients and I quite enjoyed this:

If I’m in St. Kilda again I’m very happy to go back and work my way through the vegan menu items. Service was fast and friendly and our food came out all at once (which suits me fine!). We were there around 3:15pm or so, and it wasn’t that busy¬†though it was very¬†busy when I went for dinner.
