What Is An Exclusive Listing?
Struggling to persuade your meat eating pals to join you for a meal comprised of plant-based everything? We’ve got you covered. These five vegetarian restaurants in Toronto are so good they’ll do all the convincing for you.
Doug McNish’s Public Kitchen
Vegan chef Doug McNish is something of a health food trendsetter. Using 100% organic and seasonal ingredients, he’s found a way to create wholesome veg dishes that rival those comprised of animal products. Visit his kitchen for a memorable brunch and order the vegan benedict or banana French toast… or better yet, both.
Until last month, Toronto was without an upscale plant-based restaurant. Then came Planta. The stylishly-dressed Yorkville eatery (a joint venture between chef David Lee and the Chase Hospitality Group) features a slew of innovative dishes like coconut ceviche, watermelon poke and even a carrot hot dog!
With four locations throughout the city, Fresh has long been considered a vegetarian staple downtown thanks to its comprehensive menu of consistently delicious meat-free fare. Whether you order the BBQ burger topped with onion rings, squash tacos or a rice bowl packed with all the goods, you can’t go wrong.
Who says vegetarian dishes have to be healthy? Not us! Hogtown Vegan has mastered the art of creating Southern-style comfort food that is completely meat, dairy and egg free. We’re talking crispy “wings”, chili “cheese” fries and “chicken” and waffles. Because cheat days are necessary no matter your diet.
Kupfert & Kim
Craving a health-packed meal to-go after an indulgent weekend? Head to Kupfert & Kim. With a handful of locations hidden in the PATH, the nutritious eatery recently opened its first above ground location at Queen and Spadina. Stop in and grab a smoothie bowl for breakfast or a veg-infused quinoa bowl for lunch.
