Creative and delicious vegan and vegetarian foods
At first thought, that's an oxymoron, isn't it?. Vegetarian Butcher. How could you possibly have a vegetarian butcher? A vegetarian does not eat any meat and a butcher deals only with meat. Perhaps the animals that are slaughtered were vegetarians before their demise? If this seems absolutely puzzling to you and you have a curiosity to explore the notion further, then head to Suzy Spoon's Vegetarian Butcher in Newtown.

They sell all products vegan and vegetarian from faux sausages to faux schnitzel to faux nuggets. Of course, the place looks and smells nothing like a traditional butchery... not a carcass hanging on a hook nor a meat cleaver or striped butcher's apron in sight.

Rather a busy hot plate with sizzling mushrooms, a young lady with a flower tucked behind her ear serving tofu nuggets in paper cones and a glass cabinet of vacuum sealed packets of exciting sounding sausages. Exciting for a vegetarian or vegan that is. Unless sun-dried basil and tomato sounds appetising to you.

Spoon's Vegetarian Butcher class themselves as the Purveyors of Faux Meats and their store certainly supports this motto with their very fresh, organic schnitzel roll (pictured) or their crispy faux nuggets or their plump, flavoursome sausages jam packed into a roll with sautéed onions and tomato sauce.
