badde manors cafe @ glebe pt. rd., glebe

It's been one of those months where I've been out and about, catching up with friends, trying out new food places, attending events, celebrating birthdays and when I'm not doing any of those things, it's been rather relaxing to kick back with a cup of tea, read a book, watch a movie, read some new blogs and just do anything that seems to feel right at the time. I guess you could call it my yearly blog holiday where I abandon this blog catch up on myself. Anyway, time to bring you up to speed on what I've been up to!

If you're after a place that's a little out of the ordinary, let me recommend you try Badde Manors Cafe on Glebe Pt. Road in Glebe. I've walked past this cafe a fair few times but only got round to trying it one night as we were on our way to Fox Studios to meet Adriano Zumbo (well see him demonstrate anyway - not actually hang out with him as much as I wish, anyway post to follow). Little did I know this cafe only served up vegetarian food and call me slow, it was only a good few minutes into reading the menu that the boy pointed out that there was no meat on the menu! (but you must admit, there actually aren't that many places in Sydney which only serve up vegetarian food)

A refreshing house made lemonade for me. 

There were four of us eating that night and we ordered all our dishes to share. A rather delicious and filling vegetarian lasagna served with slices of toasted buttered bread.

Mixed Lebanese platter - my favourite being the fried slices of haloumi (they could really just make that a dish of its own!)

A generous serving of Mixed Mushroom risotto.

Corn fritters with salsa - my favourite dish of the night.

All I can say is that I've been severely misguided when it comes to vegetarian food. Maybe through bad experiences at other places where there hasn't been enough food on the plate or the food has lacked flavour or just been so expensive for some vegies on a plate. Eating at Badde Manor's cafe was worth every penny! Each dish was packed with flavour, filling too as the four of us struggled to clean up the plates. I have my eye on the Tofu burger to try the next time I'm here.

There's actually a lot of dining options on Glebe Pt. Road. I'm waiting for Mashi to finish her exam and we can go food crawling down the road. Yip yip hooray!

i love badde manors ( i only recently found out that its pronounced 'bad manners') haha but its great i love that the whole menu is vegetarian, with a home style of cooking so filling with huge serves - you have to try the chai pot of tea next time its so delicious!
