Vegan ‘cheese’ platter
Vegan cheese. It’s one of the many oxymoronic snack stars on the menu at Alibi, the new, wholly veggie bar and restaurant in Woolloomooloo inside the Ovolo Hotel. In place of the usual fromage you’ll find a trio of cashew-based cheeses – a cheddar, blue and truffle. While each has a similar pastelike texture that doesn’t quite mimic its oozy dairy counterpart, the truffle number is a standout. Alibi Bar and Dining, 6 Cowper Wharf Rdwy, Woolloomooloo 2011. 02 9331 9000. alibibar.com.au. Tue-Sat 6pm-midnight.
