Smith & Deli, Fitzroy

Whilst I remain still mostly undecided on how I rate the vegan but pretending to be meat fare of sister restaurant Smith & Daughters, I was keen to give Smith & Deli a try for an early morning savoury bite with a social difference. The store has a delightful deli-style feel to it and the perky staff member made for a great welcome. Unfortunately we will were earlier than 11:30am, meaning we had the more limited breakfast menu to try, and perhaps as a result, missed on on observing some of the highs others have reported.

We went with the Truffle shuffle which was grilled cheese with ham and truffle oil. It tastes largely as anticipated, the vegan cheese makes for a more solid melt than normal and the vegan ham mostly is meat-like except perhaps in texture. All-in-all it could have passed off as a normal sanga. The truffle notes in the sandwich were a bit on the light side for me, but enticing enough to give something from the full menu a try. $12 is a bit on the high side but it is vegan. Plenty of interesting vegan groceries to browse through as well.
