Now that’s Fresh!

I am a relatively recent convert to the joys of good vegan food, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that it took me until 2014 to learn about Fresh Restaurants, which have been around since 1999. I have since visited both their Spadina and Eglinton locations a few times and have always left with a smile on my face and stomach satisfied. Even though I am always tempted to try something new, perhaps one of their delicious sounding fresh bowls or salads, I seem to always order one of their vegan burgers. But no wonder, these made-from-scratch almond and grain burgers are delicious. And this is coming from a life-long hamburger aficionado! These are vegan burgers that even a carniverous diner would like and I certainly got no complaints from my hamburger-obsessed son.
The Grilled Tofu Tacos also looked great (I didn’t get to try them – yet) but I can personally vouch for the BBQ Burger and Picnic Burger. And when you visit, don’t miss their amazing Quinoa Onion Rings — a must try!! Sorry, I ate these before I could snap a photo 😉

I’m sure to be a regular at Fresh in the coming months/years as I work my way through the rest of their menu. Note that holders of the Toronto Vegetarian Card get a 15% discount on take-out orders.

P.S. If you have room for dessert, note that Fresh offers vegan treats from Sweets From the Earth. I suggest the carrot cake, where the first ingredient is organic carrots – rather than sugar or flour. The serving is big enough for two to share!
