Ravi’s Soups on Queen.
We ended up at Ravi’s Soups on Queen Street a few days ago, after a failed attempt to check out E.L. Ruddy (1371 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON,) Unfortunately E.L. Ruddy was closed due to the constant construction that seems to be happening on Dundas these days.
Ravi’s Soups had a big group of people waiting for wraps, so that was a nice sign. They had a veggie wrap on the menu, and a vegan soup option. That said, I wasn’t vegexcited about this place from the very beginning. Service was weird and all over the place, there wasn’t a line waiting by the time we got served, but he was still frenetic and rushed, but the food didn’t come to us for quite a long time, and as with most simple vegetable dishes, I feel like I could have probably just made the wrap at home.
The veggie wrap normally has brie in it, and jut as a heads up, one of the unlisted additions is mayo… so you know (if you’re vegan), ask for it without, or just skip it if you’re here and opt for soup. (or go somewhere else.) The wrap came with a tiny salad, that of course, had “just a little bit” of mayo on it, I guess “a little bit” of mayo is the same as “no mayo”? Not quite.
My friend had the wrap and the Porcini Mushroom Soup and loved it. It’s based on an onion broth, and has mushrooms, barley, and truffle oil in it, so it’s actually vegan. However, soups all come with a cheese biscuit.
This place, like the majority of Toronto’s restaurants, is an easy choice for lacto-ovo-vegetarians, but going there made me wish I had gone somewhere else on Queen that was a bit more vegan friendly with more exciting options.
