Bunner’s Bakery Toronto

Bunner’s Bakery Toronto When you don’t eat dairy or eggs, trying to get a cake or dessert can be a minefield in a normal baker’s or grocery store. Now, imagine that difficulty, and being intolerant to gluten. And I know that it’s popular on the internet these days to be scathing of those folk who […]

Updated: Sadie’s Diner Toronto

Updated: Sadie’s Diner Toronto  I have a mild obsession with fried tofu. Golden, nuggety chunks of tofu, fried lightly in oil are indeed a thing of beauty. Any time I post photos on social media of fried tofu, even the most hardcore of my meat-eating friends comment on how delicious it looks. Even my Irish […]

Updated: Banh Mi Boys Toronto

Updated: Banh Mi Boys Toronto I had serious cravings for steamed bao from Banh Mi Boys during our four month road trip across America and Canada. Four months is an awfully long time to crave food. Particularly when you have days of eating the same meal. Or days where your only options are from fast […]

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. Perhaps it’s because the 50s style diner is not particularly prevalent in Australia. Perhaps it’s because I spent too much time watching the Winchester brothers in the […]

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 […]

Pravda Vodka Bar, C’est What, & Houston Avenue Bar and Grill – Toronto, Canada

Toronto’s nightlife and drinking culture is very different to Australia’s culture. Firstly, there’s the sport. Huge and numerous television screens adorn most bars in Toronto – even in higher end bars and nightclubs. If you’re not interested in watching the baseball, hockey, lacrosse, basketball, or even soccer, you need to plan where you’re going so […]
