Buy all your vegan staples for half the price of the big supermarkets!

There’s so many varieties in this store, it’s like a candy shop for vegetarians and vegans, and everyone else for that matter, I can’t stress that enough!

It’s a big supermarket that’s packed to the brim with international and local products. They stock everything from fresh vegetables that you might not always get from standard supermarkets, all the way to different types of crockery, frozen goods, different lifestyle drinks, instant coffees, loose leaf teas... I could go on and on!

It’s definitely worth the drive if you’re in the Gold Coast to visit this place but they also have different stores located across the city so check if you’re closer to one of them. There’s one in Mermaid Waters in Q Super Centre, Harbour Town and Tweed Heads South, there could be more but these are the only ones I am aware of. All worth the visit, it’s honestly a great experience finding new things!

Personal faves are the noodles aisle - there’s so much to choose from and a huge variety are ofcourse vegan. Think chicken ramen noodle soups (without the chicken!) and spicy noodles without dairy products. Also love the mock meat products and variety of frozen veggies to add to a hot pot. Great vegetable dumplings, too! And the teas... ahh there’s so many to get curious about, but jasmine loose leaf is really great!

Ofcourse, do your own research and check the ingredients information on the back of the items and double check online if they are indeed vegan or not. As there are so many items, the staff may not be able to necessarily point out to you which are vegan. So, it comes down to consumer responsibility.

Overall, it’s a fun shopping experience and it may even become your regular go-to, so definitely check it out!!!
