Hot Beans set to serve its last vegan taco

Sad news for vegans and lovers of Mexican cuisine: Kensington Market's own Hot Beans has quietly announced it will be closing its doors sometime between February 15 and March 15. The team behind the restaurant hasn't announced a reason for the shutdown, but it's safe to say the co-owners have had their hands full lately, with Ross Corder launching vegan pub Porter House on Dundas West in recent months.

The Baldwin St. restaurant, open since 2011, had a loyal following for its flavourful vegan takes on tacos and burritos, featuring TVP "beef" and pulled jackfruit -- to say nothing of the unusual delights on the "secret" menu. (In my humble opinion, the closure of any place that makes a mac and cheese burrito represents a true loss to the city's culinary landscape. Hot Beans, you will be missed.)
