Blissful Station Vegan Wisdom, Box Hill by Obelix

Posts of shopping centre eateries don't normally feature on our blog but Blissful Station Vegan Wisdom is worth a post. It is a vegan eatery that is flavourful and cheap. Ding, ding! (that's me attempting sound effects of boxes being ticked). When P introduced me to Blissful Station Vegan Wisdom, I was almost hyperventilating with excitement. I do often try to eat vegetarian (sometimes) and since becoming dairy intolerant, I have been disappointed that many vegetarian offerings include delicious cheese and cream, all the forbidden foods. So a vegan find and a cheap one at that is very thrilling in my world.

So what's on offer? There's a bain marie of hot foods - various stir fries served with fried rice.

Blissful Station Vegan Wisdom, Box Hill, black bean tofu with fried rice
P ordered himself a black bean tofu with fried rice. Kiddo nabbed most of the fried rice and we had to ordered another one. The fried rice had bits of mushroom and nuts - good sources of protein.

Blissful Station Vegan Wisdom, Box Hill, Asian pasties
There was also a station which made Asian style 'pasties'. These were little dough parcels with veggies inside. I ordered myself a zucchini one (came with tofu and black fungus) and a carrot one (had rice vermicelli as well). Both delicious. I preferred the zucchini one more as I found the carrot one a little too sweet. I wondered whether they added sugar to the carrot one or whether it was made with just naturally sweet carrots. These pasties were $5 for two. Bargain! I ordered another pair to take to work the following day. Just heated it in the sandwich press.

Blissful Station Vegan Wisdom, Box Hill, cold hand-cut noodles
For next time, I have already earmarked the cold hand cut noodles. The noodles are cut upon order and you get a choice of condiments. I've already envisioned mine with chilli oil and a good sprinkling of coriander. Yum in anticipation.

Blissful Station Vegan Wisdom, Box Hill, soy milk
I did try their sugar free soy milk. Very nice and did not provoke an allergic reaction. I have noticed some of the less salubrious establishments in Box Hill dilute their soy milk drinks with cow's milk as I have experienced full blown allergic reactions after consumption. But the Blissful Station ones were fine.

I think the owner felt sorry for his wife, who is vegan. He owns 4 other outlets in the food court. Plus he just opened up Ms Bean, vegan also. I think it's sweet he would do that for his wife. (Why do I know? You ask. Box hill and I are liKe vegemite and cheese - we're always together❤️
