Packed full of locals. You won’t believe how cheap the food is! VEGAN HEAVEN! Try the cutlets.. they’re veggie filled balls of deliciousness. Followed with a soy-based Neapolitan soft-serve, of course :D

Description
The Soy Centre sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. We also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller.
