Doomie's

Popular LA vegan restaurant opening in Toronto

Plant-based eaters, rejoice! Doomie's Home Cookin', a hot spot for LA-based vegans, is coming to Toronto this spring.

When a papered-up shop touting a sign reading "What Vegans Eat" popped up in Parkdale (1263 Queen Street West, to be exact), many a plant-based Torontonian got excited - and for good reason. While restaurants like Porter House and Hogtown Vegan work in our favour, the city is definitely more hospitable to omnivores.

The restaurant will serve up comfort food similar to the fare found at Apiecalypse Now! and Cosmic Treats - so brace yourself for a new roster of indulgent alternatives to grain bowls and salads.

The LA menu, which will most likely appear at the Toronto outpost, is comprised of carb-heavy, gluttonous eats like jalape単o poppers, burgers, bacon cheese fries and BBQ pulled pork sandwiches (all vegan, of course).

A few lucky Torontonians have already gotten a taste of what's to come. At last summer's Vegan Food Fest the restaurant had a dedicated tent and was dolling out the festival's most popular offering: the vegan big mac.

Until the grand opening (the date is still TBA) you'll have to get by with the Fat Mac Pizza, if you're in search of McDonalds-esque meal option.
