Don't miss this fabulous food fair
Vegan and vegetarian! I have been to this food fair and it was utterly delicious. Most of the food is vegan and I got quite a shock at how good it all tasted - see my article here.
The food almost looked like real meat in some instances and they were very reasonably priced. There was not one that I did not like and we tried many! I hope this year they will have more of the cakes and desserts as these seem to run out quickly each year.
Veg Food Fair by Dao Ji Association is back for 2019! As usual, everything is vegetarian, and in fact, most things are actually vegan so all you vegans out there can come here and know what you are eating. Each dish has a description and whether it is vegan or vegetarian, so have no fear about that.
It will be held on Sunday 23rd June 2019 from 10:30 am to 3.30 pm. The venue will be the same as last time - the South Perth Community Centre, Corner Sandgate and South Terrace, South Perth.
If gluten-free is your choice, then you are also catered for as the tags on each meal will tell you if the food is gluten free and if it contains nuts or palm oil etc., The labels are all very clear, so there can be no confusion.
The menu will be posted to their Facebook page as soon as it is available.
There will be both finger food as well as full meals, snacks, drinks, combos and desserts.
As I mentioned, the prices were extremely reasonable and range from $2 to $11. For those who are new, you buy coupons and you give each vendor coupons - cash is not used, apart from at the front desk, where there will be a coupon stall located at the venue entrance.
To avoid disappointment and to save time, organisers would like to remind everyone that they do not hire out stalls. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to directly contact them as it is difficult for them to keep track of comments on their Facebook page.
I can honestly say this was one of the highlights of my eating out last year - with food that was very tasty, it is amazing what can be done as a vegan. And everything was homemade and the mains were all a decent size serving.

I had always imagined vegan food to be somewhat dull as I had a colleague who used to eat things like carrots for lunch. But definitely not so! It has many of the foods that would traditionally have meat in them - I believe they use soy products to make their food. If you read my article at the above link, you will learn a whole lot more about this food.
