Buddha's Vegetarian Restaurant – Toronto, Ontario

May 14th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Yes, we’ve been here before, but this is totally one of our favourite ‘cheap eats’ places in Toronto. It has all the ambiance of an anatomy lab – but who cares – it has some of the best Chinese vegetarian food that I’ve had in Toronto. Their mock duck (big pic, above) – tastes nothing […]

Sweet Cherubim Bakery and Restaurant – Vancouver – Commercial Drive

July 1st, 2009 · No Comments

Head over to Commercial drive if you need your fix of tasty vegetarian/vegan cuisine. Don’t expect a chic restaurant – this is more of a cafeteria-style affair with a dessert/bakery display case out front and a hot table with a lot of dishes that have an indian or asian bent to them with many lentil […]

Rhizome Cafe – Vancouver, Mount Pleasant

May 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

Walking into this comfortable somehow homey (although still funky) cafe feels like walking into your friend’s place for a bite to eat among friends. In fact, we do run into friends in the cafe. The setting is a funky casual collection of tables and chair with friendly tattooed and pierced staff. It is not only […]

So, a post about the Naam is long overdue. It’s one of the oldest vegetarian restaurants in the city, and is an establishment. Your friends that have been to Vancouver may not have seen much of the city, but chances are good that they’ve been to the Naam. How do I feel about the Naam? […]

The Tapa Bar

October 27th, 2008 · No Comments

So Victoria isn’t that big a city which is why I guess you can call a restaurant The Tapa Bar. We really enjoyed the setting and the atmosphere – large bar on one side, open wood oven on the other and lots of people sitting around enjoying drinks and eats. According to the waitress, the […]

Rebar – Victoria

October 17th, 2008 · No Comments

We had high expectations of this place, particularly given its popular eponymous cookbook. Rebar is a Victoria institution with many people raving about its tasty vegetarian food. Robert Belcham, the chef/owner of Fuel in Vancouver also did some training here.  Thus, our hopes were high and sadly we were disappointed, particularly given the wait. Even […]

The Foundation

September 7th, 2008 · No Comments

Popular vegetarian spot filled with local Main Street hipsters – tattoos and various body piercings are de rigueur. Eclectic decor with old school furniture and interesting quotes on the wall. Average but tasty vegetarian food with large portions with reasonably priced food and drinks. A draft beer or glass of wine averages about $5. Although […]
