Today Husband and I had to run some errands at Highpoint Shopping Centre (a massive mall in the suburb of Maribyrnong) before heading elsewhere for more errands. As we didn’t know when we’d be able to eat next, we took a quick look around the food court. I don’t know what some of you guys call food courts where you live. Food hall? Basically it’s that part of the mall where you find all the food places and a bunch of seating.
Anyway, I spied a shop selling Indian food and tried my luck there as Indian places are the only ones who seem to offer good vegan fare in food courts. So I did my usual “do you have any dishes that don’t have egg or dairy or anything from an animal?” and the friendly woman behind the counter said “you mean vegan?” and proceeded to explain four vegan dishes. I went for a veggie pakora plus a simple dhal and an eggplant potato curry with rice for around $9:
My meal was tasty, though I would have preferred a little more spice. The pakora was good too. I love Indian food and if I visit the Highpoint food court again I’ll go straight to Salt n Pepper and not bother looking for other vegan options.
Salt n Pepper Indian Cuisine is located at the post office end of Highpoint. Or the RACV end. Or the Howard’s Storage World end.
