V’s Caribbean Vegan Vegetarian in Toronto, ON

Around a month ago JC and I visited V’s Caribbean Restaurant – Vegan Vegetarian a bit late this evening, just a bit before closing (they close at around 7pm) but they still had a bit of food left so they put together a container for us, and we were really happy about it. The food was delicious and hearty, with rich satisfying flavours. This week, I went back again with a friend, and had a full and amazing plate of food – The Pong Special (named after one of their chefs) which is the perfect plate for indecisive or hungry people that want to try a little bit of everything V’s Caribbean has to offer (and I highly recommend it so you can find your own favourites!) Almost everyday – the folks at V’s post their menu for the day on Instagram – so if you follow them, suddenly when they open there is a series of posts of their various mouthwatering stews and other dishes. Today they had: Cauliflower & Lima bean stew Curry TVP (textured veggie protein) chunks Steamed/fried callaloo Curried chickpeas & potatoes Maple jerk tofu (which was straight up incredible) Creamy fried Bammies (aka cassava) and steamed okra Basmati rice & peas Spiced baked mash potatoes (omg) Mixed veggies  (onions, cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, peas, carrots, more) Desserts – like vegan donuts Soups – porridge and pea soup At the moment – they are cash only, but it sounds like they plan to have debit eventually. They’re currently open Tuesday…

Veggie Pride Parade

The Veggie Parade is a unique event that supports and grows Toronto’s veg community. It brings together hundreds to celebrate veg living.This year’s event will take place on Saturday, June 7. We’ll gather at 11am and get ready to leave at 12pm! We’ll be leaving from our usual starting point near Yonge & Bloor, but this year we’ll march west across Bloor to Christie, close to the site of the Toronto Raw/Vegan Festival (free admission) at 918 Bathurst St. There will be no after-party this year; instead we can head over to the Raw/Vegan Festival. The parade has undergone some behind-the-scenes changes and we’re happy to announce that this year’s celebration is being hosted by the Toronto Vegetarian Association.
