I suppose the term ‘butcher’ is rather a misnomer here, if you think of the word in the usual sense, but according to Google it actually has two meanings: (1) a person whose trade is cutting up and selling meat in a shop and (2) a person selling refreshments, newspapers, etc on a train or in a theatre (North American, informal). Wow, I did not know that. So I suppose Suzy Spoon can call her shop a Vegetarian Butcher. Sorry, you’ll need to travel to Australia if you want to taste Suzy’s take on meatless sausages etc.
Suzy Spoon’s Vegetarian Butcher opened on King St, Newtown around seven months ago and the store is already thriving, with a steady stream of customers and almost 6000 followers on Facebook.
She previously sold her wares at Marrickville’s markets and had a similar business on Enmore Rd and in the 90s she ran a vegetarian burger joint on Australia St in Newtown.
Spoon was so highly regarded as a vegetarian chef that Hollywood star Tobey Maguire recruited her as his personal chef while he was in Australia filming The Great Gatsby.
