Last Tuesday in Melbourne the weather was foul. Really foul. Howling winds, driving rain and COLD. I lingered in bed until I could no longer justify it, and finally got up to make coffee and breakfast.
One minute later the power went out halfway through grinding the coffee. Damn. A quick check on my phone told me that it was unlikely to be back for 3 hours so I headed off to Pearl Oyster.
This place is just around the corner from me and I’ve only been there once (pre-vegan) for a takeaway sandwich on the way to an airport pickup. This was my first time eating in.
The menu is vegetarian heavy and there are a few vegan choices on the menu. Lots of the others are easily veganisable as well. They are helpful about this, unlike some other places.
I started off with a soy latte (excellent) while I checked the menu. I settled on the Thai scrambled tofu. This was firm tofu scrambled with lots of mushrooms, sweet chilli, ginger, fried shallots and coriander, topped with sprouts. Very delicious. I ordered some toast to go with it, which in hindsight was a mistake, because the serving was large and I ended up very full!
I’m happy to have finally eaten in here, excellent coffee, nice staff and good food.
