Vegetarian Directory Updates – February 2015

  New Locations Boon Burger (114 Dunlop St. E, Barrie, 705-718-4193, www.boonburger.ca), Canada’s very first all vegan burger café, will be opening a Toronto location! Although it is but a whispering at the moment, the word is out that the Winnipeg based vegan burger joint is staking out Toronto neighbourhoods for their next location. Boon opened their second location in Barrie last year, and their delicious, fresh menu of burgers, salads, soups and chili dogs has been a hit north of the city. “We are very proud to offer a 100% animal-free, plant based menu. With your support, it is our goal to make every ingredient sustainable. A large part of our menu is organic, local or fair-trade, with new ingredients being added regularly.” Your days of choosing from one meager veggie burger on a menu are over. In addition to 4 kinds of vegan patties to choose from and 14 varieties of burger, Boon also offers shakes and coconut based vegan soft serve. Needless to say, news of this new location is a very, very good thing for Toronto vegans. Follow Boon Burger Barrie on Facebook and Twitter for ongoing… Read More

Let’s Heat Up Winter With Some Hot Beans

By Barbi Lazarus, Donor and Volunteer Resources Coordinator In case you haven’t heard, allow me to break some sad news to you: Toronto’s beloved Hot Beans, an all vegan taco shop in Kensington Market, is closing. The closing date will be sometime between February 15th and March 15th, but undetermined at the moment. This news certainly brings tears and whines a plenty in my books, but there has been one up side. With only a bit of time left to enjoy their delicious and unique menu offerings, I’ve made it my mission to go once a week and make sure I get through most of their menu one last time. These dining excursions have certainly given me something to look forward to every week during these dreary winter days. Take yesterday for example! TVA volunteer extraordinaire Angeline and I decided to make it extra special by venturing out in matching dresses, and were joined by our new Festival & Events Coordinator, Marcus. Here’s the details on what we ordered, to give you a reminder of just a few of the dishes you should really be sure to try before it’s too late. Marcus and Angeline both… Read More
