Beetroot plate – very interesting.  Cooked beetroot, grated raw beetroot, beetroot puree and a beetroot pesto type concoction…All tasted completely different

Spinach risotto (my favourite of the evening)

Brinjal mushroom stack (amazing!), Quinoa balls, roasted tomato and stuffed mushroom (stuffed with a brinjal puree mixture).  This plate was incredible

dessert

Oops….Kinda forgot to take a pic before gobbling up the dessert.  It was a fruit terrine with raspberry jelly slices and berry coulis.  When I saw it was a fruit based dessert, I was a bit annoyed….I was hoping for a chocolate dessert.  But this was really beautiful and tasted amazing!  I sent compliments to the chef:)

With tea, there were date/nut balls and raspberry turkish delight type sweets.

All in all a lovely experience and Planet restaurant is now definitely one of my favourite restaurants.  Highly recommended to all vegans and all meals can be made gluten free too.
