We're pretty pumped, the Goods was voted Best Salad In Toronto on BlogTO this weekend. After the high fiving subsided an exuberant discussion followed about how excited we are that the vast majority of the restaurants voted are focused on real, vegan food or at least strict vegetarian with a host of other dietary options. We're not talking caesar or cobb salad here, most everyone are making their dressings in-house and prepping plants to make it happen without the unnecessary addition of meats or dairy. Pretty cool people, looks like Toronto is getting the hang of this conscious eating thing. With so many options for healthy takeout, greasy food is no longer the only easy takeaway option after a long exhausting day. And who knows you might find you liked tossing a salad a lot more than a pizza... A big thanks to everyone who voted, you make us happy.

  We got a space. We're going bananas, we're soooo excited. Aiming to open for takeout and pre-order pickup very early 2014, we'll be found at 1255 Dundas West at Dovercourt, South side. Our current delivery service will continue as usual. There is now a kilometre long to-do list, so we're going to take a blogging break. But will be posting lots of photos of THE GOODS' progress at 1255. It's sure to be an adventure. Much more information to come, we thank every gosh-darn one of you for being enthusiastic, encouraging and wonderful. Like us, follow us Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @thegoodsisgood

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.  

MISFITSTUDIO Alright kids, you've been asking for THE GOODS so we're giving it to you. Starting next week MISFITSTUDIO will be carrying our green smoothies, Insteada superfood drinks and snack boxes.
