Eating Vegan in Toronto

Vegan Platter
Toronto has a lot of great restaurant options for vegans. We discovered some great new restaurants on our most recent trip, but the highlight was a visit to Fabbrica.

We got the rock star treatment. Celebrity chef Missy Hui, winner of Chopped, prepared a 3-course vegan feast for us. You could really taste the quality of the ingredients being served up. Missy really knows how to cook. Wood-fired mushroom pizza, grilled vegetables, braised greens, fried polenta, and chocolate fudge. All of it mouthwatering.

The other places we ate:
Tabülè – Tasty Lebanese food with an almost identical menu to Nuba in Vancouver.
Hot Beans – Vegan taco and burrito shop in Kensington Market. Really liked the jackfruit taco. The mac and cheese burrito was oddly good.
Lola’s Kitchen – Healthy meals for meat-eaters and vegetarians. The Israeli Couscous Bowl was a hit.
Mamma’s Pizza – Pizza chain that now offers vegan pizza with Daiya cheese.

  1. Did the Fabricca mushroom pizza have a cheese sub? I’m going to try making jackfruit tacos at home. I’m on a taco kick lately — easy one last week was sauteed mixed greens(turnip, beet and radish) with quick pickled radish, refried pinto beans, salsa verde and soft corn tortillas.


    • No fake cheese on the Fabbrica pizza. It was good without it. They’re not the kind of place that would just use Daiya, although a cashew topping would probably have worked well.

      We’ve made jackfruit carnitas before quite successfully – just make sure you buy the green jackfruit in brine (not the ripe stuff in syrup).
