Veggielicious Toronto 2013

Veggielicious hits up Toronto restaurants for 3rd year

Veggielicious, Toronto's vegan dining festival, enters its third year on Friday with over 30 participating restaurants across the city. Founded by the Toronto Vegetarian Association in 2011 to supplement both Summer- and Winterlicious, the two week-long festival is also primarily structured around prix fixe specials, but does include a variety of other deals from bakeries, cafes and grocery stores to bolster its lineup. This, no doubt is a good thing given the smaller number of participating restaurants.

While not all restaurants involved in Veggielicious are exclusively vegan as far as their regular menus go, the prix fixe specials offered as part of the festival do meet this criteria. Included on the list of restaurants participating this year are popular vegetarian spots like Grasslands, Sadie's Diner, One Love Vegetarian, and the more take-out friendly Urban Herbivore and Kupfert and Kim. In addition to these more specialized restaurants, establishments like Milagro (all three locations) and Pero also get in on the fun with vegan specials put together exclusively for Veggielicious. In the bakery department, you'll find places like Prairie Girl and Sweets from the Earth.

As has been the case in past years, participating restaurants have been a bit slow in finalizing their specials, so it's difficult to make specific recommendations at this time. One's best bet is to check the Veggielicious website for updates over the next few days. The festival runs from November 15 to 30, 2013.
