Lentil as Anything - Footscray

Lentil as Anything
231 Barkly St, Footscray VIC 3011

Having been fans of the Lentil as Anything in St Kilda, we were excited to see the new Footscray branch opening as part of the re-development of the old Barkly Hotel...

We visited on a Saturday evening, and there were a few other patrons, but it wasn't as packed as I remember the St Kilda branch. We were shown to a slightly dirty table which was then cleaned. We then worked out it was a serve yourself buffet, I'd been expecting table service based on previous experience. We made our way over to the food and filled our plates with a variety of tasty looking veggie treats.

The food tasted as good as it looked, a lovely dahl, a spicy cabbage curry, and a cold eggplant dish, along with rice and a poppadom. We filled ourselves up pretty quickly and headed to the counter to make our donations, you pay what you can afford at Lentil is Anything...

The slight surprise at the buffet format and the quick meal that resulted was balance by the great food in the nicely restored building. This isn't the place to take a date to, but is a great place to get a good healthy feed, quickly! A great addition to the Footscray scene...
