Discount Profile: Tenon Vegetarian Cuisine

We have profiled Tenon Vegetarian Cuisine in the past, shortly after they first opened, but with the new all-you-can-eat menu there is so much tasty news to share! The price for the all-you-can-eat menu is $20.99, but you will pay less with your Toronto Veg Card, which gets you 10% off. That price tag gets you unlimited orders of a wide variety of amazing dishes not found on their regular menu. My father and I each ordered the all-you-can-eat special so we were able to share and enjoy a wide range of dishes including sesame “chicken” (that was our favourite!) and orange “chicken”, seaweed salad, tofu with peanut sauce and mango salad.

First, we had a very nicely presented plate of six california rolls and an order of salmon sushi. The fake “salmon” slices looked just like real salmon and the texture and taste was almost identical. I actually had to ask to be sure that is wasn’t real fish. All their “seafood” is vegetarian. Next, came the Veggie “Chicken” Teriyaki ($13.99). Tender, juicy morsels of “chicken” served on a sizzling hot plate, steaming and absolutely delicious. Then, for a nice change, we ordered a Thai Basil “Chicken” dish. This is a must try: a beautiful presentation with just the right amount of spiciness (we asked for medium spicy) which… Read More
