Day 23: A quick bite in St Kilda

Roast Vegetable Paella

Roast Vegetable Paella

With the vegan challenge into it’s fourth week it’s interesting to discover what the options may be in an unknown restaurant. On Wednesday night, we had about 45 minutes to eat a quick dinner before going to see a concert at the Palais. After a quick scour of a few menus we settled on Amigos in Acland Street; Mexican is usually a safe bet for vegetarian food.

After a chat to the waitress and a visit to the kitchen on her part to consult with the chef on which menu items didn’t contain dairy, I settled on the Roast Vegetable Paella. It arrived on a sizzling plate, had an inviting aroma and did not disappoint in terms of flavour. The Paella contained a rainbow of different veggies and was quite nicely seasoned. In fact it was so filling I only managed to get through just over a third of the plate. Jayson also enjoyed his chicken burrito and was pleasantly surprised at the overall standard. The service was good too – staff were attentive and the meals arrived fairly quickly. Not bad for a fairly random pick.
