Novo Pizzeria

The typical dinner and a movie Sunday turned into a day of discovering this amazing place, Novo Pizzeria (2118 Burrard St). Situated right by 5th Avenue Cinemas, this Italian restaurant pleasantly surprised me with their kindness in accommodating me as a vegan. I asked the server what on their menu could be “veganized”? He laughed…

Voted top 10 restaurants in Vancouver, Fayuca has some of the most delicious food I have ever had. Located in the heart of Yaletown (1009 Hamilton St, Vancouver), Fayuca is a restaurant that serves food inspired by the Pacific Northwest of Mexico. Although the restaurant itself is not vegan, many of their dishes can be…

JamJar – Folk Lebanese Food

Having good Lebanese food is like going back to the best moments of my childhood. JamJar (2280 Commercial Dr) offers high quality and delicious Lebanese food at a good price but the best part is the amount of vegan options available (and the gigantic portion sizes)! The vegan sample plate is only $14 and is…

Slickity Jim’s Chat and Chew

Probably one of the hippest breakfast joints in Vancouver, Slickity Jim’s (3475 Main St, Vancouver) is guaranteed to have a lineup more often than not, unless you are like me that goes our for breakfast on a tuesday. I have never tried one of their regular breakfast items but I have now tried both their…

The Charlatan

The first page on the menu of this Commercial Drive bar/restaurant, The Charlatan, ( 1447 Commercial Dr, Vancouver) is dedicated to herbivores. On it there is a long list of vegan and vegetarian options, most of which can be modified to be vegan. Today I tried the mushroom tacos without the crema (cream) and they were…

The Whip

The Whip’s (209 6th Avenue East) Vegan Tofu Scrambler is one of my favorite vegan brunch dishes in Vancouver in part due to it’s originality. The tofu is scrambled with lots of sauteed onions, mushrooms, and roasted tomatoes, making it quite hearty and saucy. The hash browns are good as well and combine perfectly with…

Darby’s Public House

Recently I have been re-introduced to Darby’s by the fact that someone close to me lives next door to it. I have to say that I am quite impressed by the new and improved menu. Not only do they have gluten free and vegetarian options but on the menu itself it says: “ask for our…

Earls

I think it is important to mention when one of Vancouver’s major chain restaurants now offers the option to veganize a number of items on it’s menu. I find that chain restaurants like Earls, Cactus Club, Joey’s, etc have the least amount of vegan options on their menu, which is why it was a pleasant…
