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.  

Ursa Root Vegetable Salad 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.
