We once tried to order the pork rolls that are discussed in the Melb veg food guide but they didn't really understand when we asked for vegetarian pork roll and offered us either pork or vegetarian noodles, thankfully Mr T was with me and asked in Cantonese but they didn't have any. I have since asked Emily and she explained that you need to ask for "vegetarian rolls" .
These $3 rolls are frigging amazing, not just amazing but life changing. I'm not normally a fan of cold gluten products but the gluten is super tasty and when paired with a long bread roll(it's bigger than the pic looks), coriander and pickled carrots it is AMAZINGGGGGGG. And for $3? you can't even get a salad sandwich for $3.
Here is the place where you can get them from.
That's why I heart the western suburbs.
But if you need another reason to venture to Footscray there is also yummy jam donuts that are accidentally vegan here. I don't have the address yet but basically if you come out at the exit at Footscray market and turn left you will come across a bakery called Sunny Nguyen. Next time I will get the address and actual pics of the donuts I promise! It is a $1 for 2 donuts. They are greasy, and nice and cheap tasting in a good way. Much better than la panella jam donuts which have a slightly weird flavour.
