If you’re vegan or vegetarian, then you likely know the struggle of visiting a restaurant and not being able to order anything off the menu – or getting stuck ordering some bland version of a salad. And while that’s fine every once in a while, it’s nice to know that you can visit a restaurant with delicious plant-based options if you’re looking to indulge in something more fulfilling. No matter what anyone says, you definitely don’t need to be a vegan or vegetarian to enjoy a meal at any of these Toronto restaurants.
