The top 5 new vegan restaurants in Toronto

New vegan restaurants in Toronto opened in 2020 with plant-based menus that run the gamut of cuisines. Dishes include refreshing Thai salads, filling Egyptian falafels and meat-free Mexican. 

Here are my picks for top new vegan restaurants in Toronto.

Eat Nabati

Kensington Market's newest spot for Egyptian eats is also totally meat-free, hence the name "Nabati," which refers to vegetarian eats in Arabic. Their hulking falafels stuffed with cashew-based halloumi cheese is just one of many colourful veggie dishes here.

La Bartola

This Little Italy restaurant comes from Mexico City-born chef Ivan Castro, whose entire restaurant is pretty much an homage to Mexican women. His menu takes staples like tacos and tostados and gives them an extra dose of herbs and ingredients like braised hibiscus flowers.
