These just might be Toronto’s most ridiculous vegan treats
Toronto, as the axis Canada spins around (kidding), is home to a food scene so rich, it borders on overwhelming. This, of course, makes it the perfect stop for the gastronomical tourist in all of us.
Trust us. The vegan options in this Canadian metropolis are seemingly endless and, not totally surprisingly, thoroughly Instagrammable.
So, whether you’re a local, a passer through, or stuck indefinitely in a fruitless mission to find Drake and con him into marrying you, you’re sure to find some food that will knock your socks off.
Four of the city’s wildest vegan treats follow.
Blue Narwhal Chimney – Eva’s Original Chimneys
Eva’s Original Chimneys always has vegan options on the menu, granted — but the spot’s most notable vegan option comes and goes faster than your raw food diet plan.
Only available during limited windows, the dairy-free version of the Blue Narwhal is not to be missed. Not only is it perhaps the most beautiful sweet treat you’ll ever behold, but it’s essentially cake stuffed with ice cream. That should be enough on its own, really.
Keep an eye on the Eva’s Original Chimneys Instagram page to catch it when it’s next available.
Vegan Benedict – Mythology Diner
Mythology Diner is an upscale, plant-based adaptation of the sort of diners you may already know and love.
While it offers a wide array of amazing drinks and dishes, the Vegan Benedict, complete with runny “yoke”, revolutionizes vegan brunch, and is sure to be a meal you won’t soon forget.
Vegan Milkshakes – Not Your Mother
Fully vegan ice cream shop Not Your Mother goes all out with it’s frozen, heavily decorated desserts.
The dairy-free milkshakes are not to be missed. Far more than just drinks, these things pay homage to indulgence, with mountains of toppings and an aesthetic that’s totally on fleek. (Sorry.)
Mac and Charlie Pizza – Apiecolypse Now
Apiecolypse Now may be one of Canada’s best-known vegan pizza shops, and with good reason.
You’re not going to be getting any sad, kamut crust, kale-loaded pizza here. Junk food is the name of the game, and Apiecolypse Now does it right. The Mac & Charlie Pizza — which yes, is a pasta-pizza fusion — is not to be missed.
