You can soon eat carrot hot dogs in Toronto

Toronto's incoming plant-based restaurant Planta hasn't opened its doors just yet. But it's been showcasing some of its potential dishes on Instagram and one in particular caught our attention - the carrot hot dog.

Unlike most other veggies dogs, this one isn't an amalgamation of soy protein and fillers. Nope, it's just a roasted carrot that looks suspiciously like the pork or beef-based ballpark snack we all know and love.

At Planta, this carrot dog will come topped with mustard, sauerkraut and dill pickles as well as with a side of fries.

The restaurant - from the Chase Hospitality Group and chef David Lee - is slated to open at 1221 Bay St., in the former Pangea space, in about four week's time. Lee's Nota Bene also serves up a roasted carrot dish, but apparently Planta's will be completely different.
