Great Vegetarian and Vegan restaurant options in Toronto.
At the Boatel we are pleased to offer to delicious Vegetarian and Vegan cuisine for breakfast. Kindly let us know in advance so that we can accommodate your request. Vegetarians and vegans can rejoice in the choices of restaurant and speciality stores available in Toronto. One of my very favorite lunch places is Fresh On Spadina conveniently located at 147 Spadina Avenue which is an easy walk just 17 minute directly up Spadina to Richmond Street.
I was introduced to Fresh On Spadina a few years ago and have never been disappointed although I must admit that my greatest challenge is selecting from the extensive menu options. In fact I would say that these are probably some of the best salads I have ever had anywhere in Toronto. My favorite salad is the Tangled Thai with shredded vegetables such as carrots, yellow beets, jicama, cabbage and cucumber with chopped peanuts and cilantro. The dressing are all made in house and while I am partial to the Peanut Lime Dressing which is sweet and nutty with coconut milk, lime and a little hot sauce, however I also love the Sriracha Vinaigrette with maple syrup, tamari and garlic.
Along with Salads, they also offer burgers (made-from-scratch almond and grain patties) wraps, taco’s and Fresh Bowls round out the menu. The list of add-ons is as long as the menu options. You can also create your own juice or enjoy one of the fruit smoothies or power shakes. If you are looking for a poutine fix then why not try the Green Poutine with fresh greens, mushroom gravy and cheese sauce. Gluten-free options are also available with most items by substituting the whole wheat buns with lettuce or gluten free wraps.
Inside the tables are very close together or you can eat outside on their small patio. They also have three other locations to choose from and are open from 11:30 to 10pm during the week and 10:30 to 10pm on weekends. If the place is full don’t worry this restaurant is defiantly worth the wait. Their menu can be found on line and you can call ahead for a pick up order.
