Lentil as Anything

South King Street has recently become home to Sydney’s first Lentil as Anything – a unique, not-for-profit enterprise that offers wholesome vegetarian food for a pay-by-donation fee. Diners are invited to decide what they think the meal is worth and pay accordingly, or simply to part with whatever they can afford. Opened by founder and former Sri Lankan refugee Shanaka Fernando, the social and dining experiment has been running successfully in Melbourne since 2000. Pick up a recipe book from their shop for $54 and try the dishes at home.
