I’m always excited to learn of a new vegan business opening up (especially food) so I was most pleased to learn that Il Gobbo has opened on Keilor Road in Essendon. Offering a selection of burgers, hot dogs, a burrito, nachos, lasagna, spaghetti with sauce and fries for your meal, I decided today was the day I had to go ;)
Even though I’d looked at the menu online at home, I still had some trouble deciding on a burger because they all sounded great. In the end I decided that because I am a Veganopoulous I had to get the Fully Sick Wog Burger. I really liked the patty and the onion, sundried tomato, vegan bacon and cheese with the fresh basil and tomato worked well together. Definitely something I’d get again once I work my way through the menu!
The fam inhaled two bowls of fries that were nicely seasoned:
I very much enjoyed my meal and service was lovely :) Go check it out! Essendon peeps, well done on scoring such a tasty cafe!
I forgot to take a photo of the outside (a common theme with me) but here’s the inside:
Il Gobbo is located at 305 Keilor Road, Essendon. Tram 59 stops right outside (stop 51). Look for a green shop with signage for Down to Earth tattoos (who use vegan ink)– the cafe is in the front! https://www.facebook.com/ilgobbovegan
