20130726-081105.jpg On the tail of my post early this week about dinning out with regulars I stopped by The Bickford Flexitarian for lunch. What a brilliant concept! Seriously delicious, simple foods, with something for everyone. I had the raw, walnut tacos with a side of quinoa salad and my friend, who I've actually been lunching with for 29 years, had the fried egg sandwich and the roasted cauliflower side. Both were so yummy and filling. The space is sunny and comfortable, the staff all friendly and very knowledgeable about their food. They offered up details about using only Himalayan salt and even let me read the packaging for their chai teas. Just a great experience and a perfect spot for brunch, lunch or a snack and a chat.

Ma Bitches At The Dizzy I get asked this a lot "My _________ is in town, they're veg where can we eat?" I could list of all the vegetarian, raw or vegan places in the city but really that's an easy web search. What I like best is an amazing mainstream restaurant that has options for everyone. Inclusive is so in. Some favs, in no particular order with a few recos Ursa - Sprouted salad and tofu main with a shrub to sip, outstanding Hawker Bar - Don't ask how many Laksa Lemaks I've eaten and the Silken Tofu is unreal Hole In The Wall -  The tostada hits the vegan, soy and gluten free mark in a delicious way Milagros -  Ensalada costena is raw and do not forget guac, beans and salsa starter OMG Union - It might not look it but they'll whip you up something special without a dirty look Mavrik - Tacos and starters with vegan and gluten-free options These are just a few and of course please share any gems you have with us! Enjoy.
