Yum. I haven't been to saravanaa bhavan in a couple of years. If you ever find yourself in mississauga, Guru lakshmi has awesome dosas too! http://www.dosacorner.ca/ It's a really popular place, so sometimes you have to wait a bit to get a table. They really squish you into this restaurant.
I really want to get down to udupi palace some day too.

Mount Pleasant is not far up the street from me (short bus ride) and I plan to do some jogging there this summer. I want to find Glenn Gould's grave (among others) but yes, it's historic and lovely and I can't believe I've lived here two years now and have yet to visit. Next nice free day I have on a weekend, I do plan to at least take a stroll through myself and check it out. I love cemetaries, too.

a++ for udupi palace.
spring dosa (spicy potato and onion, carrot, cabbage, peas, tomato, and spicy chutney wrapped in a thin crispy crepe, served with lentil soup and coconut chutney).
i'm now crazy for dosa, but there are none near guelph.

If I can swing by for bake sale awesomeness, I will! My work schedule continues to suck my (metaphorical) balls.

i'm crying because that bake sale is during the hours that i work tomorrow. exactly. CRY.

oh, and i've been to hot beans now, and can i say major donut love? i've had a coconut lime donut & an espresso glazed one and they were both A.MA.ZING. though i liked the coconut lime one better. i also had their tvp tacos and they were great, but i could have eaten like 20 million of them. i'll go for a burrito next time. i'm also curious about the bbq jackfruit but i was really not impressed by jackfruit when i tried to make it so i'm reluctant to spend $9 on it now. and not to toot my own horn (just kidding), but usually i'm impressed by stuff i make.

and that "hello vegan" zine they've got in there is cute, i got one even though the information in it wasn't new to me. it's always a nice reminder to re-read those kinds of things. :D

We're going to be holding bake sales from now-to end of October. No way that you'll miss all of them :) Aaaand, we may be opening a small stall starting in May near Kensington.. Fingers crossed.
We're holding 2 more sales in April for the worldwide vegan bake sale event..

Ah so sorry we missed you. I didn't even leave my house till 11:15, so we didn't get started till about 11:45. Boo to that.
But got some good news. An owner of a shop in Kensington wants to sell our goodies from his storefront because he thinks they'll go great with his coffee :) Yay!! Going to talk to him this week. It's that step we've been waiting for..

And ok. Got to eat some tacos soon..

semiautomatic - hot beans is pretty great, i think :) i've already spent my extra money for this week (d'oh - beer & expensive makeup from panacea** are my weaknesses, apparently!) but i'm looking forward to going there next week and trying a burrito! pro tip: get a donut.

** i know this is probably old news, but i am SO SO happy panacea sells makeup!! i've lost patience for intensive label-scrutinizing at shoppers or sephora. so far the ecco bella mascara seems to hold up pretty well. i biked in the rain and wind (which always makes my eyes water terribly) last night and i didn't show up to my friend's birthday party looking like a soggy raccoon, so that's good.

yeah label checking is a pain in the asparagus when it comes to makeup. i haven't looked at the makeup at panacea yet but i'll be there the same day i eat at hot beans!! yay! and i'll definitely get a donut. :D

thanks for the info about ecco bella mascara, too.

also, ppk boards, i love you. i was getting all "meh" about the job i just got - it's a little breakfast place on roncy, which is ok i guess, but it's a whole lot of cooking eggs. a) i'm kind of uncomfortable with that and b) i don't really know how to do that. and it's not like i can practice my skillz with cooking eggs at home. plus there's a few operational things that are getting on my nerves already there. and one of my resolutions moving back here was to find work at a veggie place.
um. keep your fingers crossed for me dudes! <3 (and no hard feelings if someone else from here gets the job!)
