I visited Vegie Mum on two separate occasions both to dine solo. Each time I visited it was on a weekday and I was surprised to find largish tables (four or more diners) doing weekday lunch in a proper Lazy-Susan dining style, as in several communal dishes on the table being shared via a spin top table. I was expecting solo lunch grabbers like myself but it was pleasant to see a dynamic atmosphere.
On the first occasion I had their fried rice with egg, vegetarian of course ($8.50). The serve size was reassuringly massive and came with their house made chilli sauce. The rice itself featured a nice medley of greens and shroom all chopped up to match the little grains of rice. It had good 'wok hai' and I was pleased that Vegie Mum, one can take home leftovers in a doggy bag as I sure did. It was enough for dinner as well! Good cheap eats.
On the second occasion, I ordered their stir fried mix veggies ($11) with rice. This came sauteed with oyster sauce. It was comfort food for sure. Filling and better for me than the usual lunch on the run.
OverallIt can be a bit tricky to find a family joint that caters for vegetarians. Vegie Mum fits the bill and I didn't really miss the meat whatsoever. With cheap and cheery service, a return visit is definitely on the cards.
