I'll be visiting Quebec City for the first time in July - any restaurant recommendations? Google isn't being must help for once! They don't have to be specifically vegan/vegetarian places, just with good vegan options on the menu, within a reasonable price range...
Thanks PPK!

Have you checked happy cow? I have no recommendations but that'll probably be a good bet in terms of knowing what's veg friendly.

There is not much in Qc city from what I know. Then again, I'm not a local either. Zen restaurant might be the only one that I could recommend. Standard pan-asian veg restaurant but it still hits the spot.

YEah I did a happy cow search and found a few places, but I always like hearing what the locals recommend. I'll report back in August!

Maybe it's too late since it's already July, but anyway the info might be useful to other people.

I've lived in Quebec City my whole life, but I've only been vegan since January, so while I know the city well I don't know everything about vegan options.

The only vegetarian restaurant in Quebec City is Restaurant Zen. It has vegan options but I think you have to ask what is vegan.

Non-vegetarian restaurants known for offering at least one vegan option are Le Tiers-temps, which just opened, and Café Babylone, which I think is in vacation right now.

I must admit I haven't eaten in either of these yet (I haven't many occasions of eating out). I usually eat at Thai Express (vegetarian options here) when I'm at the mall or something. You can get frozen soygourt (called Tofrui) at La Crémière, which tastes good.

There is a vegan potluck nearly every month. The next one is on August 9th, I can give you details if you will still be there by then.

You can buy vegan food at health food stores: Aliments de santé Laurier, Le Crac and Accomodation bio. Aliments de santé Laurier is the biggest.

There are vegan restaurants in Montreal. You can find them on this site. I haven't been to Montreal in a while so I never tried one. Lucky Montrealers.

And in Rimouski, a small city (much) farther north, Parfum de Corée (Korean food) is simply delicious. It offers three vegan main meals and one dessert (you have to ask what is vegan). And the boulangerie Les baguettes en l'air sells a variety of good vegan muffins (they're not advertized as vegan, you have to ask to make sure).

Oh, and a company that makes some frozen/refrigerated meals in Quebec should you need some is Le Commensal. There's also the better-known Amy's and others of course. But Le Commensal is easily found in supermarkets. Some of their meals are vegetarian, so always check the ingredients.

I'm not saying those meals are particulary good, note, they're just OK. And Le Commensal got itself a bad reputation when its restaurants went from vegetarian to flexitarian. Its Quebec City restaurant closed recently.

Oh, and one last thing: Restaurant Zen is known to have very slow service.
