a taste of home
Posted on 12 / 31 / 2009
I live in Sydney now, after living for a long time in Melbourne. And when I came "home" for a short work trip recently, Lord of the Fries was my first stop after getting off the airport shuttle at Spencer Street Station. Melbourne people, you don't know what you've got!
Yes, it's junky, but it's tasty junk, and such a thing needs no justification as long as it's only once in a while. We're all good little vegans, after all: live a little!
The chips are crispy, and the sauces are great (my fave is the thai -- which is a peanut sauce), although not all sauces are vegan so it's best to let them know. The burger patties are about as much like my distant memories of beef as I've ever had.
The best thing about lord of the fries, though, is that it passes as your corner greasy spoon: people pile off the train a flinders street and unwittingly eat vegetarian, and I looove the subterfuge.
convenient, tasty, good range for vegans
yes, I guess it's a little unhealthy
