    Tucked away amongst the plethora of stores lining King Street in Newtown lies a little gem of a restaurant, Lentil as Anything providing nothing but a unique dining experience with 100% vegetarian and vegan food. The restaurant is a not for profit community organisation that runs purely on generosity. Rather than paying a set amount of money for a meal, diners can pay as much or as little they like through the contribution box. Last Friday night, my friends and I ventured to the restaurant, filled with excitement and curiosity.






    As we arrived at the place, like with any other restaurant we had to wait to be seated. The food menu was written on a wooden board for everyone to see and although the place was buzzing with positive energy and plenty of people, it seemed relatively small. However, as a staff member led us to a table we discovered the space was actually quite long, filled with unique tables and chairs perfectly matching the quirky and rustic décor.





    Surprisingly, my friends and I were seated at a table along with other guests, one of whom was a volunteer. We ordered the Lentil Burger Stack, Malaysian Laksa and Pumpkin Tagine with Cous Cous to share between us. While we waited for our meals we had the perfect opportunity for a chat, gaining an insight into the restaurant with amazing live acoustic background music. All three meals were extremely delicious and wholesome, resembling home cooked food, which served to nicely warm us up on the chill autumn night.





    Dining at Lentil As Anything was definitely a heart warming dining experience, with generosity and positive energy wafting through the air as people from all different walks of life mingled while sharing a meal. With core values of human dignity, justice, hope compassion and community, Lentil As Anything is an organisation worth supporting either through time by volunteering or through donating to keep it running smoothly, using food to bring people together!





    Located at 531 King Street, Newtown, Lentil As Anything is open everyday from 6:00 pm – 9:00pm (last orders at 8:30pm).
