One King West Hotel Toronto

One King West Hotel Toronto We had one night left in Toronto before our long-haul flight to Thailand, via a quick layover at an ungodly hour in Hong Kong. We wanted somewhere close to the AirBnB apartment we’d been staying in for the past four weeks, so we didn’t have a nightmare with our suitcases. […]

Butter Chicken Roti Toronto

Butter Chicken Roti Toronto Canada Sometimes I think the gods are just having a laugh when people keep thinking I’m asking for bacon when I say vegan. On the first occasion, I was at an Indian buffet restaurant in Hamilton. The majority of the dishes had every ingredient listed, but a couple of tasty looking […]

Medieval Times Toronto Canada

Medieval Times Toronto Canada When I was in California with my sister last year, I described Medieval Times as good looking men with long hair and beards, riding horses. And accordingly, it seems rather popular with bachelorette/hen’s parties. Medieval Times describes itself as an exciting, family-friendly dinner attraction inspired by an 11th century feast and […]

Senator Restaurant Toronto

Senator Restaurant Toronto  When you eat vegan food, diners can be hit or miss. Most often, a complete miss. And yet, I have a strange fascination with them.

Apparently, not only celebrity chefs have groupies, but your normal, talented chefs without the television appearances also […]

It’s funny how concerned people are that you may not have enough alcohol to get sufficiently sozzled! Rest assured, dear friends, we had an elegant sufficiency of beer during our Beer Lovers Tour. However, being 5 […]

What Do Vegans Eat For Dessert?

What do vegans eat for dessert? This is a question I get asked a lot. There’s a common misconception that vegans can’t eat dessert because they don’t eat dairy or eggs. At times, I even feel like there’s a misconception that we don’t eat at all. I’m frequently asked “But what do you EAT?” with mild […]

Urban Herbivore in Toronto

Writing a blog post about Urban Herbivore in Toronto while we’re road tripping through rural America is sheer torture. Looking through photos of their cupcakes is even worse! When I first arrived in Toronto, I found it very difficult to eat. It wasn’t a lack of choice for me. There are plenty of fantastic veggie […]
