Amiya and Tusta, the owners of Heart and Halo, a vegetarian eatery in Byron Bay, have a ‘love and light’ feel about them.

When you meet people with a genuine connection to human beings it can be like oxygen is to fresh air in a sometimes cold-hearted digital age that we find ourselves surrounded by.

I met these two over a dhal and a chai a few years back and I’ve been hooked on their consistent good food and their good natures ever since.

Recently Tusta and Amiya expanded their operation for some needed extra space for their food business. A small storage space became available right next to their popular diner.

They snaffelled it up and now it’s their store room and a retail outlet called – yes, you guessed it – The Store House. It’s for the stuff of exotic ingredients the likes of curry powders, turmeric, quinoa, legumes, pulses, dried soy products, etc; all in pre-packed and reasonably priced parcels complete with informed and interesting information if you need it.

They also mix blends for easy cooking – I’ve been pan toasting his dhal spice mix to add to my homemade dhal now for some weeks and it’s fabulous.

Heart and Halo is situated at Shop 4/14 Cnr Byron and Middleton Streets (under the Byron Bayside Motel), phone 6685 6685.
