Veggielicious Toronto

Veggielicious is Toronto's newest dining festival

Veggielicious is Toronto's newest culinary celebration. Its framework is similar to the other Toronto "licious" events, but doesn't feature a rigid prix fixe menu structure. The other difference, of course, is that the eateries participating all specialize in vegetarian and vegan fare. As much as such options have increased at Summerlicious and Winterlicious, they often exist as afterthoughts at the majority of the restaurants who participate in those dining festivals.

Organized by the Toronto Vegetarian Association, one can expect animal-free meals to take centre stage at Veggielicious, which is sure to mean more interesting dishes than your standard-fare Butternut Squash Ravioi or Mushroom Risotto (typical Winterlicious veg options). Not that there's anything wrong with those dishes, but with the solid vegetarian and vegan dining options in Toronto, it's about time this cuisine took the focus, if only for a two week period.

Not all the menus have been finalized, but the list of participating restaurants includes Live Food Bar, Rawlicious, Magic Oven Pizza locations, Urban Herbivore, Fresh locations, Sadie's Diner, Udupi Palace, Bunner's Bake Shop, Fressen, Mela, Cruda Cafe, The Beet, and Vegetarian Haven.

Veggielicious runs April 9-24th. Check the website for updated menu information as the festival approaches.
