I received a text from K one fine morning - a photo of her latte in very convivial surrounds. She wanted to book this place for our next catch up. Why not? V Series is a vegetarian cafe serving the most delectable looking sweets, some of which are vegan. K assured me that I wouldn't even miss the meat.
K kicked things off with the prettiest of all mocktails with rosewater and fairy floss and berries whereas P and I went with the 'hungover' tonic, a blend of juices with a zing of ginger.
Our waitress suggested we try the $38 pp set menu as it offered a great sampling across their menu. We were happy to go along with it.
With the entree came a serve of chips and one of my faves for the evening, a vegetarian peking duck bao! Yep, didn't miss the meat.
K enjoyed her mushroom alfredo pasta and she swapped halfway with P for her spaghetti with rocket and hazelnut pesto. P wanted me to note that the pesto was very herbaceous.
We loved it.
OverallV Series is a modern Australian take on vegetarian cuisine. The set menu was terrific value and really showcased that vegetarian food need not be boring. Vegans will be well catered for here. Service was attentive without being intrusive.
