Vegan Market Social Series: I Love You Taco Bell…

February 22, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Ode to the YOLO Box

There is a pre-conceived notion that all chefs possess an ultra refined palette, and would never dream of eating fast food much less something called a Yolo Box… but that is simply untrue. File this little secret under ‘guilty pleasures’ but our Chef Holloway is a HUGE fan of Taco Bell and eagerly waits for the return of the elusive ‘Yolo Box’, a Doritos branded boxed calamity filled to the brim with sodium goodness. As an ode to this retired combo, Chef Holloway has created a vegan Taco Bell inspired menu featuring sauces created with No. 7 Hot Sauce*.

Welcome Drink & Grazing Station: Seasonal Alchemy Pickle Kombucha + Full No. 7 Hot Sauce lineup with Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, House-Made Refried Beans and Chipotle Cheddar Vegan Cheeze

Featured Canapés:
– Avocado and Charred Poblano Taquitos with Red Pepper Sauce and Garlic Chive Crema
– “Papas Bravas” with Ancho Aioli and Pico de Gallo
Huitlacoche “Pogo” Stix with Smoked Ketchup and No7 Jalapeño Relish

Featured Small Plates:
– “Crunch Wrap Supreme”: Grilled Tortilla stuffed with Crispy Corn, Black Turtle Beans, Iceberg Lettuce and Tomato
– Tostada con “Carne”: Grilled Seitan “Ribs” on a Corn Tortilla, Salsa Verde, Marinated Onions and Cauliflower Queso

– Sol Beer: Clear medium gold colour; subtle aromas of freshly baked bread, citrus fruit and marzipan; on the palate it is light bodied and mild carbonation, with flavours that reaffirm the aromas.

– Tecate Beer: Medium gold; light malty and spicy aromas; clean and creamy with light hops note on palate; refreshing finish.

Dessert : Cinnamon Churros with Ontario Strawberry Coulis & Chocolate Ganache

*Please note the menu will be mostly mild with a slight kick or medium. For those of you who LOVE hot sauce there will be the full range of No. 7 Hot Sauce available for sampling and purchase.
The event is approximately 2-hours long & begins at 7pm. Those looking to purchase items from the Market will be extended a 10% discount for the evening

This is NOT a BYOW event; alcohol will be provided as part of the pairing

In efforts to keep quality high and experience intimate we are limiting our tickets to 10 guests per time slot. Multiple dates may be posted outside of peak season but as always this is a first come first served kind of system.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Due to the nature of these events modifications for allergies are often not possible. If you have any allergies, please contact us before purchasing a ticket to discuss. Our facility processes dairy, eggs, wheat, shellfish, soy and other allergens; we employ stringent cross-contact practices to avoid any contamination. For more information on our practices please visit our website or send us an email at info@urbanacorn.ca to discuss.

Please note that although the event is vegan, Urban Acorn Market is a flexitarian pantry and as such does contain a small amount of non-vegan products such as eggs, cheese, dairy, honey, sausage & bacon.
All Market Social tickets are final sale. Thank you
{About Vegan Market Social}
We host a monthly Market Socials in our storefront located at 1565 Dupont Street .

What’s a Market Social you ask? As caterers we get to to help our clients celebrate their important milestones; with our market storefront we’ve had the privilege of being involved with smaller, more intimate moments like taco Tuesday dinners, pancake breakfasts and all the special connections we share with loved ones over food… our Market Social is a celebration of those day to day interactions we share with our community. Think of these events as intimate and informal standing cocktail party in our market storefront meant to encourage guests to mingle, share and celebrate food. Events are 19+

Are they always Vegan? Yes. We want people to feel included in the discussion around food, culture and the arts and feel making these events vegan will allow more guests to participate. We also do special Gluten-Free editions a few times a year.
