I missed writing in here. I missed you blog. And I missed YOU, whoever you are. Last week was a busy week, as indicated by my absence. My food choices were atrocious and I don’t even want to talk about it (though I can tell you I relied heavily on peanut butter, cho dang tofu, and several day old okra to tide me over.)
My weekend was much better. I paid Burrito Boys (218 Adelaide St W, Toronto) a visit after I decided it was necessary to find a better burrito than the crap I had at Chipotle. You can say what you want about Chipotle, you can sing it’s praises, I don’t care. I don’t like it.
I ordered a vegan burrito, and it was good. They construct the burrito in such a way that you get the full compliment of flavours each time you take a bite, rather than the usual “oh here’s rice, oh here’s lettuce, oh here’s salsa” feeling I get from some other places. It was quite filling, though I probably could have eaten two for lunch. I think grilling the burrito is a nice touch, crispy on the outside warm and yummy on the inside.
They have veggie ground round, and vegan guacamole, and hot sauce that’s actually hot. I wish they also had some daiya, because that would have made this place all around perfect. I hear there is another good place in Kensington Market with Sweet Potato Burritos. Oh boy do I want to have some of that!
I also stopped in to One Love for a bowl of Sweet Corn Soup. I love that place, and it’s so easy to get to, just across the street from Bathurst Station. Love it. It was such a dismal morning, the solution is always soup.
On Sunday morning I went to Fresh for Brunch, and while the tofu scramble was crap, those freaking pancakes were yummy. Banana nut is a great idea. Maybe I don’t hate Fresh after all? I think one dish will make or break it… The BBQ Burger. I’ve heard a lot of good things, and on top of everything, it has a quinoa onion ring on it. Not on the side, but actually ON the burger.
And I found some Vitasoy Chocolate Peppermint soymilk, so I bought about 6 cartons (couldn’t afford not to). I wish the stuff was fortified with some more nutrients, but since it only has 2% of my daily requirement of calcium per serving, I suppose I just have to drink more of it.
