I must post about THE MOST AMAZING dinning experience I've had in Toronto. It was at Ursa
a few weeks back, I'm telling you this place is for everyone: vegan, veggies, raw foodies, carnivores, celiacs, locavores, teetotallers
, you name it. And not the kind of place that just pulls the bread from your bruschetta and calls it gluten-free, oh you know who you are Dundas and Palmerston...
Ursa is a real food experience, it's clear the kitchen thinks about the whole picture; presentation, taste, experience, love and nourishment. Their delicious root vegetable salad came with a side of sprouts still growing in soil to be trimmed at the table... the epitome of living food. The housemade silken tofu amazing! And, as a non-drinker I was able, for the first time, to sample housemade drinks. In this case they were delicious kombuchas and vinegar shrubs and the bartender (Robin Goodfellow
) was SO into his art it made it all the more exciting. Really all the staff seemed eager to describe and discuss the food and their process.
I could go on, but I'll keep it proper blog short, plus I don't have the words to do the place justice. Just check it out.
