Hold on to your nutritional yeast, kids – vegan cuisine is booming in Fitzroy and there isn’t a mung bean or reformed mushroom protein in sight.
Smith & Daughters is set to give the vegan world a shakeup, kicking off service this weekend in Fitzroy. Shannon Martinez (The Gasometer Hotel) and business savvy Mo Wyse (The Collingwood People’s Market) have joined veggie forces in the gorgeous stone building at 175 Brunswick Street; decorated with vintage ceramics, reclaimed wood and subway tiles. The kitchen is also decked out with an all-female crew sporting more ink than you can poke a bearded hipster at.
Looks aside, this place will give your ethical subconscious a lovely massage, not a single animal product in sight. Even the coffee is served with every possible plant based milk you could want – coconut, soy, almond…the list goes on.
Put it this way, if you make a list of all the plant based products in the world and place it next to all the non-plant based products, you will see just how versatile this cuisine can be. Taking it a step further, Smith & Daughters will focus on Latin cuisine – paella, croquettes, ceviche and even vegan chorizo, it’s guaranteed that your experience here may change you to vegan for good.
