Yong’s is your one stop shop for all things vegetarian: raw, vegan, gluten free – you name it, they’ve got it. The crowd rolls in and out fast, so stake your claim early or come during the quieter hours to ensure you grab a spot at one of the tables before things get a little too hectic.

Thai green curry ($18)

The Thai green curry was quite enjoyable – my organic tempeh came immersed in a light, not too creamy house-made Thai green curry paste characterised by quite an amped up level of spiciness. I must admit that I am not one to usually order tempeh (it is one of those tastes that takes a little getting used to), but I quite liked the pairing. All of this married well with a bowl of biodynamic brown rice with just enough outer crunchiness to add some texture.

On recommendation of the waitress, V ordered the fried tofu patty, which came with a katsu sauce. From what I gather this was also an enjoyable dish, though V left still rather hungry and ended up making a stop for a second meal at another restaurant later in the night.

We’d love to return to Yong’s, particularly to try their raw desserts and those buckwheat pancakes, which seem to be invading instagram.
