Eating Out: Brisbane Vegan Markets July 2018

I missed a couple of months of the Brisbane Vegan Markets, but July saw me back again!

I made a beeline to try the Parma Burger from Green Street Foods. I breaded schnitzel (I am fairly sure it was tofu) with marinara sauce and cheese on a homemade GF rosemary bun. I am generally not a fan of the GF breads, but Green Street Foods really does such a great job making their buns! This was extremely heavy and filling though, so I didn't have room for much else!

I also had some bao from Nonya house - I tried the satay bao for the first time. It was good, though I think I prefer their 'super vegan bao'. Lots of delicious satay sauce though, which was very messy but I managed to clean up every bit of it.

Of course I had to get an ice cream from my favourite I Should Coco! I was super full from the burger, so I just got a kid's sized cone. I got one of their new flavours, the Strawberry and Dreamz, which is strawberries, chocolate sauce, and soy whip. It was pretty hard to cram it all into the little cone, so not as pretty as it would be in something larger, but still tasty!

And I also got two cupcakes from Pippa's Pantry - a Turkish Delight, and a Golden Gaytime. I'm not a big cupcake fan in general, but Pippa's are so good that I love trying her range out.

I just went to the August markets yesterday, so stay tuned for that! In another news, I am preparing for this year's VeganMoFo, which starts in September. A full month of daily vegan blogging! The last couple of years I have followed their daily prompts, though that takes a lot of preparation and I just don't have the spoons for that right now. So I will be doing my own themes for the first three weeks, then joining in with the MoFo prompts for the final week. Hope to see you there. :D

My Gizmo. I feel like I don't talk about her enough these days, with Sahara's passing being so much more recent. But I miss this sweet, generous, grounding cat every day. Here she is having a look out of the sunroom window, probably chirruping at some birds.


  1. I haven't had an ice cream cone since before going vegan, and you always find the most gorgeous and tastiest sounding ice cream cones!
    Pretty Gizmo!

    1. All credit to the ice cream cones goes to I Should Coco! We are very lucky to have them here in Brisbane.

  2. Yay! Everything looks amazing! Esp that ice cream cone. OMGGGGG. Excited to see your Mofo posts. I skipped it last year, and I probably missed sign-up this year. But I think daily blogging would kill me these days! :-) I've scaled back to 4 days instead of my old 5.

    1. I can't actually blog every day, so I have to do a lot of prep work or I would die. Taking it a little easier on myself by not following all those prompts, which take so much planning!

  3. I don't think I will manage Mofo but I will look forward to reading your posts. Some great finds at the market. I would love to try the Turkish Delight cupcake.

    1. I love turkish delight anything because I love rose, it was lovely.

  4. The Parma Burger sounds awesome, and the ice cream looks perfectly delicious! Looking forward to your MoFo posts!
