Tyranny of Distance is a Chapel precinct institute. Opening in 2008, they have just celebrated 10 years in Windsor. Last week, Tyranny changed their menu to be all vegan. You can expect a big menu of Southern-style comfort food. Our picks are the loaded nachos on crispy gyoza skins, eggplant parmigiana with mozzarella and ‘bacon’, the street tacos and the HUGE classic American Cheeseburger. Make sure you choose the BBQ Bacon option that comes with extra cheese slices, bacon, onion rings, and BBQ sauce.

This food is unlike anything you would have had before. Clear all expectations from your mind about Japanese food. Sash Japanese have heaps of vegan options. Start with a fresh avocado taco or the eggplant open Poke bowl. For the mains, you can get the balsamic eggplant or pumpkin beetroot pizza. We recommend the rice base pizza with miso eggplant.
