Veg Guide Updates — June 2018!
New Vegan Restaurants!
From the great minds that brought you Awai, comes its more casual sibling Away; a plant based cafe and kitchen located in Little Italy! Away offers soups, salads, sandwiches, light meals and desserts as well as house made kombucha and cold brew! And as if that wasn’t enough, it also offers Steambox Dumplings, which started out as a vegan pop-up! The space is cozy and green and the food is delicious and all vegan! The perfect cafe for wiling away an afternoon!

Soos, the Malaysian street food restaurant at 94 Ossington is going vegan two days a week starting in June!
Soos has a little sister, and she’s vegan. Not quite ready to leave the 94 Ossington nest yet, but will be out to play every Monday and Tuesday. Starting June 4th, please join us at Fat Choi for some plant based prosperity! Fat Choi is a passion project from the team behind Soos, as a few of us have been enjoying the plant based lifestyle for nearly a year! Under the wing of chef Tricia Soo, we bring you delicious flavours and comforting Asian eats that are completely plant based. We are so excited to share Fat Choi with you, and hope that one day soon, she can have a nest of her own!
If this whets your appetite, check out their instagram, which promises so much delicious plant based food to come!
