Copper Branch seems to be taking over the world! Originally from Montreal (with several locations there), they started with one location in downtown Toronto and are now invading all the suburbs throughout the GTA so you can get your plant-based fix wherever you are!

I had tried their burgers before at various veg fests but when I went for my first sit down meal at their Thornhill location, my jaw dropped.

My mom and I started by splitting the spicy buffalo wings. They had a delicious, slightly crispy skin and the aioli to dip them in was so creamy and flavourful. Even the little side of purple coleslaw was a refreshing, crunchy treat (spiced with sriracha! Yes please!).

It was too difficult to choose just one entree so we also split two bowls: The General Copper and the Aztec. Both blew our minds when they arrived at the table. The portions were so generous, and the bowls were so colourful with so many different components.

In addition to their famous ooey, gooey general tao chicken (made from shitake mushrooms), the General Copper had a bright purple coleslaw, fresh and bright green broccoli, and cubes of creamy avocado. The Aztec was chock full of nutritious goodness including cubed sweet potatoes, street corn, mango salsa, and black beans. The combo of creamy guacamole with crunchy tortilla chips really made the dish.

We were way too full after all of that to indulge in anything else, but I can’t wait to go back to try some of their all-day breakfast items like blueberry cocoa waffles or the southwest scramble wrap.
