Snapper, mushrooms, leek and grilled pressed potato in a frothy matcha-lemongrass gravy. I liked this dish, each of the individual ingredients were well-cooked and tasty and everything went well together. The gravy was a bit too salty and I couldn’t taste the matcha, but it’s a minor complaint in an otherwise good dish.

Ask them for how many meatballs they can give you. The menu only listed 16 and 20 meatballs, but they managed to give me a plate with just 12. The meatballs and covered in gravy, with lingonberry jam, mashed potatoes and broccoli on the side. The meatballs are meaty and soft. Quite fatty to be honest, I prefer leaner, firmer meatballs, so might try the plant balls next time!

Plain Vanilla offers a variety of savoury tarts. I chose pumpkin, pine nut and sage as I saw good reviews of it online. It's more of a pie or quiche, 4" in diameter, baked in a thick crust with an egg custard filling. I was surprised that the tart was served cold. The crust was too thick and hard and the egg custard filling was extremely jelak and gave me a headache. The only part of this I enjoyed was the pumpkin layer in the filling. Overall didn't really like the tart much.

The salad fared much better. It was a mix of cous cous, brown rice, cauliflower, chickpeas, pine nuts and raisins, and was very tasty, though I would have appreciated more veg and less grains.

And more! We had:
- 16 meatballs ($9.90): comes with mashed potato and broccoli. Meatballs look unexciting but taste much better than they look.
- salmon lasagna: comes with chunks of salmon in lovely cheesiness. Fairly oily though.
- 2 vegetable medallions: made of broccoli, potato, onions, leeks and cheese. Really delicious.
- blueberry cheesecake: not the best
- refillable drinks: hot tea/coffee is 50c, cold drinks are $1.50
Overall the food was good at very affordable prices. Enjoyed it a lot!
