Whether it is for our own health, the welfare of animals, or the health of the planet, many of us are eating more plant-based. Going without meat, or in some cases any animal products at all, can be challenging, but it does not have to be. Toronto is home to some of the best plant-based restaurants in the country. Here are some of Toronto's best vegan/vegetarian restaurants.
You can visit Urban Herbivore any day of the week from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM at their Kensington Market location (64 Oxford Street). There is a second location in the Eaton Centre. You will find everything from fresh juices, sandwiches and full meals, all made in house. Their to-go packaging is 100% petroleum-free, the straws cups and cutlery are corn-based, and the bowls and lids are made from sugarcane. Quality vegetarian food, with an ecological business model.
When you are in the mood for quality plant-based food, you have got to give Planta a try. The menu is 100% vegan. Unlike many other vegan restaurants, Planta chef David Lee does not rely on mock meat or nut milk, or any imitation food. Their dishes are designed from the ground up, taking full advantage of the versatility of plant-based ingredients. There are several Toronto locations to serve you.
Rosalinda (133 Richmond St. W) is a Mexican restaurant with a vegan twist. Try their roasted cauliflower tostada on a fresh grilled tortilla made from Oaxacan corn.
Fresh had been an original in Toronto's plant-based scene since 1999. They offer a great selection of plant-based meals, made fresh daily, in-house. They also offer a full line of raw, organic cold-pressed juices and craft cocktails. There are 7 locations in Toronto to choose from.
