My boyfriend and I ate at Cardinal Rule (corner of Roncesvalles and Queen) last week and it was fantastic! They have an omni/veg/vegan menu which is adjustable, so it suited both myself and omni bf. I had a beet salad and mango rice paper rolls - the beet salad was good, the dressing was delicious, but there was no substitute for the omitted feta cheese, so what I got was basically salad greens, some pecans and some beets, which, again, was nice, but might have been nicer to have some kind of substitute. The mango rolls were really nice, the tamari dipping sauce was delish, my only qualm was that there were big chunks of red onion inside the rolls which I had to pick out because I don't like raw onion. But that's not their fault. Overall, awesome cozy little restaurant with a great menu, good prices and pleasant service.

IMO, Fresh is a little overpriced for what they offer. I enjoy the Super Protein Salad (or whatever it's called) with the green dressing, but once you add a drink/smoothie, you're looking at almost $20. That's a little OTT for me unfortunately.

HOT BEANS RULES! I've had the black bean burrito there a couple of times, and even my omni boyfriend enjoyed his jackfruit tacos and espresso donut (he is a donut feind!). Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I must try Loving Hut one day, I walk past most days to go to work. Also Vegetarian Haven sounds great, hoping to try that one soon. Also, Cafe Novo is right around the corner from me, was planning on heading there today but it just started raining :(

I love this thread, I'm fairly new to Toronto and to veg/veganism so this is super helpful for me! Thank you for your information everyone!

Cool! Glad to hear there'll be other PPKers there. I'll be there Saturday. Like I said, I'll be wearing my PPK shirt and I have red shoulder length hair - come and say hi if you see me and I don't recognize you first!

Another vegan potluck coordinated by the Vegan Society of Toronto coming up in early September and for those interested in attending, here are the details:

Quote:
Hey everyone!

Our last vegan potluck was a great success (over 50 attendees!) so, we're going to dive right in with another one, this upcoming Saturday, September 3rd, at 6pm, in the hall of St Thomas Anglican Church, at 383 Huron St. in the Annex, just steps from both Spadina and St. George stations! This potluck will once again feature a guest speaker, and this time around I'm very pleased to announce that animal rights philosopher and writer Dr. David Sztybel has graciously agreed to come out to speak to us about his latest thoughts around animal rights philosophy, namely, Animal Ahimsa.

For those who don't already know, Dr. David Sztybel is a long time vegan and animal rights activist who "obtained his doctorate in animal rights ethics from the University of Toronto’s Department of Philosophy in 2000. After running that Department’s essay writing clinic for a year, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Queen’s University in 2001-2002, focused on the ethics of anti-vivisection. He also lectured for two years in the Sociology Department at Brock University. He has authored 19 peer-reviewed academic articles, taught 13 university courses, and has presented to many academic and general audiences. Areas of research interest are wide-ranging, and include: animal rights, ethical theory, ahimsa, the feminist ethic of care, legislative tactics and movement strategy, socialist theory, environmental ethics, normative sociology, epistemology, and the philosophy of religion. He has been a vegan animal rights activist for more than 23 years and currently works in Toronto as a teacher, author, and occasional public speaker. Dr. Sztybel also attained a B. Ed. Degree in2006 from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, and is pleased to have made various contributions to public teaching. He belonged for several years to the Fellowship program of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, but left in 2011, only to begin a research fellowship at the University of Vienna." from "Winning the Animal Rights Debate" website: http://sztybel.tripod.com/bio.pdf

Getting to the church hall is easy, as it's located in the Annex just a short distance from both Spadina and St. George Subway Stations. Here's a link to a google map to help you navigate your way there a little better: http://maps.google.pt/maps?q=383+Huron+ ... 7&t=h&z=16

Our vegan potluck portion of the evening will begin at 6pm, with the talk beginning at approximately 7pm. For the dinner, please do ensure that all food brought is vegan (no animal products whatsoever, including dairy, eggs, honey, etc...) and please only fair trade chocolate products (to avoid child slavery: http://www.johnrobbins.info/blog/is-the ... chocolate/). Also, please try to bring a portion which serves approximately 6-8 servings so that as many attendees as possible get to sample your dish. To better accommodate those who may have specific food allergens (and because we had quite a few requests for recipes last time around) we would also very much appreciate it if you are able to list the ingredients in your dish on a small slip of paper to display with it. There are approximately five steps leading up into the church hall so please, do let me know if you have mobility issues and would like some assistance. As well, there will be a limited number of plates, cutlery, and glasses available for use so do feel free to bring your own if you'd like to ensure that we don't run out of what you need, when you need it!

There is no charge for the event, but there will be a donation box available with all funds going to the Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank: http://www.vegfoodbank.ca/

If I've neglected to mention something, please let me know.

Thanks everyone and looking forward to seeing you all soon!

:)

"Toronto Pig Save, TARVE, and other groups will be giving out free veggie dogs and fruit juices in a neighbourhood overshadowed by a pig slaughterhouse. It's time to take back the neighbourhood and show what is possible.
We will be promoting an alternative vision for the Niagara neighbourhood. Instead of a pig slaughterhouse, Toronto Pig Save is advocating for a just transition for workers on Labour Day - safe, fulfilling, and meaningful jobs needed to support a food economy that is local, organic, and whole grain and plant based (that is, vegan)..." etc.

I hope to be at the VegFest sometime on Saturday. Just not 100% certain but I feel like I have to go down there at some point this weekend. And the weather's supposed to be beautiful this weekend!

vegfest-i love you. was there last night, and there are definitely less hot meal choices since harbourfront changed around the setting of the outdoor venues since the beginning of the summer. But there are so many goodies. Yesterday was the quick tour (lucky us we live only a 10 mn walk away). Today's the full visit. Can't wait!

my partner is preaching at a church in etobicoke tomorrow, and we'll be going out for lunch.
is the food fair worth bugging him to drive to?
if not, how about some recommendations for someplace to go for lunch?

Just drove back from Toronto after a day at Veg Fest! SO much yummy food and I got to meet MeShell and Terry, which was so nice! chimrichalds, I came by your booth but there was just a man there! I assumed that wasn't you (heh) but I bought a sticky bun and HOLY crepe. It was amazing. It's always an inspiring time, and I can't wait for next year.

I couldn't make it yesterday although now I wish I had tried harder because I twisted my ankle running this morning, and my sister was at the Emergency Room all night last night and I'm preoccupied with that (I think she's all right...shingles...but she's still awfully sick and home again), anyway, I'm not sure I'm going at all now due to these craptastic developments. *sulks*

I think the Food Fair's worth bugging him to drive to. As to recommendations if you decide to go elsewhere, I so rarely eat out, I don't know. I've eaten at Live near Dupont station three times and I thought it was very good every time, if that helps.

Thing with the FF is that it may be pretty crowded around lunchtime.

unfortunately, we missed out on the food fair, but we did go to hot beans for lunch. i had a burrito bowl with brown rice and tvp. oh man, the chunks of tvp were amazing, and their nacho 'cheese' sauce is delicious. also stopped by urban herbivore and stocked up on apple-cranberry muffins.

Those muffins are amazing, bio. And they are the size of a human head.

Loved the veggie fest -- it's the first time I've gone. The waterfront setting is really great.

Does anyone know if anywhere in Toronto sells Kindfood cupcakes? Must eat more...

There's a vegan bakesale at Panacea on Sunday, in support of TVA's subway ad campaign:

In the co-karma, I've got most of my organic produce, although I have picked up from a small selection of Noah a few things. Karma's a good choice, but! It would be nice, there are so many options off.

There is an amazing raw vegan restaurant in Port Credit (Mississauga) called Raw Aura - I highly recommend it if you're in the area! :)
