Ballarat, I do indeed live in... groups for vego people? Hah... this is the land of steakhouses, fish and ship shops, Chinese joints and pizza. No such luck my friends.

Chat for Tea does rule though, and we've discovered a few vegan items on various take-away joint menus:

- The new take-away joint on the corner of Sturt and Ripon streets (formerly The Seafood King) has these INSANE felafel souvlakis. Get them to hold the tzatziki and slather on the hommus. Yum.

- The vegie curries, vegie samosas and spring rolls from Masala Valley contain no death, nor associated products. Same applies to the various bhaji and pakora on their menu.

- The Forge Pizzeria makes the best pizza in town. Highly recommend you folk get the pumpkin, basil and pine nut creation, hold the cheese. The garlic pizza is amazing too, and omnis won't complain about you modifying it because it doesn't contain animal products as standard.

- if you get the flat white noodles from Noodle Box, with the hot sauce (and others I believe, we just like hot stuff), and load it up with tofu and vegies, you've got a box of vegan goodness for a princely ~$13 a head (regular box). More than enough to fill you up, and mighty tasty.

I'm sure there's more... but I can't think of anything else right now.

Interesting. Some of the veg curries are - did you specifically ask if they were vegan or did you request the ingredients? Maybe they dunno what vegan means...

Yeah don't think she fully understood but she asked the chef then came back and said nothing was. I asked specifically about the vegetables in gravy in the veg section. Ended up at Noodle box, that always satisfies laugh

I interrogated a bloke at the Wendouree Masala Valley and found that the vegie vindaloo is free of any animal products... just vegies, spices, a butt-load of chilli and some rice.
