Eating Out: Boundary Street Markets and The Green Edge

After our lunch at Loving Hut, the three of us headed into South Bank for a wander around (and I taught J how to play Pokemon Go, and Leigh then started playing as well, and then we all played). After working off our lunch, we were ready for some early evening dessert before dinner! We headed into the Boundary Street Markets for ice cream.

I have mentioned I Should Coco before, this trip was actually my maiden voyage. Even though their soft serve is a coconut base, it is not a gross make me sick coconut base. It is great! I chose the Super Dooper in a cone, which had maple syrup, seed mix and fresh fruits. Leigh got the Cherry Merry in a cup (chocolate sauce, sour cherries, coconut), and J got the Salted Caramel Pretzel in a cup.

There are quite a few stalls selling other vegan food options there (I am actually going back tonight, and will have a chance to report more fully!), though we had dinner plans elsewhere. We did decide to pick up some BBQ seitan skewers from a grill stall there. Unfortunately I can't remember the name, but there was only one there doing it. Avoid it at all costs. The sauce was lovely, but it was basically raw seitan dough thrown on a grill and slightly heated. So gross. We just ended licking off the sauce.

For the main event, we went to The Green Edge for dinner. To be honest, I don't eat at The Green Edge very often because I find the food to be quite expensive and often just OK. But J was keen to try their famous Epic Burger (all the different proteins on a burger, served on a moat of fries). Leigh got the Satay Tofu burger (I used to love this when they first started making it, but they have changed it now and it isn't as good), and I got the Meatball Sub (which is one of my preferred options from there... I just wish the bread was a bit better). We had also ordered some garlic bread, but when it came out they had accidentally drizzled it with agave nectar rather than white balsamic reduction, so it got sent back. Sorry for the crappy lighting in the photos!

We had vague plans that we might go to the new vegan bakehouse for dessert, but we were all so full! (Don't worry, I have since been there many times and I have a blog post about it coming up). Instead I dropped them back at their hotel and headed home to rub my belly, as we had more eating adventures planned for the next day!

Sahara steels my doona


Sahara loves it when it is sheet washing day, because it means that my doona gets thrown on the floor at the foot of my bed. She loves to snooze on it down there!

    1. More things should be served with a moat of fries!

  4. Agave on your fries??? Oh no!! That's like the time a server put a cherry in my dirty martini. Haha. That salted caramel ice cream looks insanely good!

    1. Yep, there are some places agave and cherries just should not go!

  5. Ah that ice cream looks so fantastic! The salted caramel pretzel looks like a worthy contender though.
    Oh that's too bad about the seitan. Yuck :/
    Your meatball sub looks good. Too bad they drizzled garlic bread with agave... how could anyone find that appetizing?
    That picture of Sahara is cute - Sunny does the same thing on wash the sheets day (which was today).

    1. The ice cream is amazing!
      Everyone gets super excited about the caramel. I don't like caramel sauce, but those who do say it is great!
