Veda

If you’re looking for an affordable but hearty and filling lunch, look no further than Veda Healthy Indian Cuisine (and I mean that literally, you no longer need to look far because they now have 4 locations!).

This Indian fast food take out place is not only very vegan-friendly, but the vegan options are clearly labelled making ordering quick and easy. Unless of course you are indecisive like me and can’t decide what to order!

They carry “curritos” (vegetable curry and rice wrapped up a buritto), stuffed naan (yes!), and even a veggie burger. After much debate, I decided to go for the $5 small curry bowl (you can get a large for $8), which gave me my choice of regular or vegetable basmati rice, and 2 curries. There were 2 lacto-vegetarian and 3 vegan curries to choose for. I went for the mixed vegetable curry and channa masala and both were delicious, with just the perfect amount of spicyness for a bit of a kick.

I topped it off with a baked veggie samosa, and after using my Toronto Veg Card for 10% off, the total including tax came to only $5.87!
