Housed in a rather unimposing building near the beach end of Beach Road, Great Nature Vegetarian Snacks and Grocery is a haven for vegetarians and those who appreciate something a little different.
Upon entering the shop, you are greeted by the smell of delicious hot food including a choice of vegetarian stir fry type dishes such as vegetable and tofu sweet and sour with your choice of fried brown rice,steamed rice or noodles, all for $6.90.
Spring rolls and other hot treats are also available and if you choose to eat in at the rather nondescript tables, a delicious pot of traditional Asian tea is on offer.
[ADVERT]Looking to take some food home? The shelves are full of Asian vegetarian food including green curry pastes, frozen steam buns and even vegetarian ham. All cooked food available for sale in store is free from any animal products (eggs, fish, etc).
The staff are polite, the prices reasonable, and the food delicious. What the shop lacks in fancy tables and expensive decorations, it well makes up with great food and variety hard to match in the south.
For us vegetarians, this little shop near the beach is a great place to find our favourite foods and discover new ones; and for those of you who aren't usually vegetarian, give it a go, you might just be surprised.
