Blossom Vegetarian does an all-vegetarian buffet spread that offers meatless versions of Asian favourites.
Meals at this Richmond Hill restaurant start at $13.88 for weekday lunches, and rise as high as $23.88 for weekend dinners.
One of the more popular components of the buffet is its Noodle Bar, where you get to create a custom bowl of noodles filled with ingredients like tofu, wakame, broccoli, spinach and various types of mushrooms.
Once you fill your bowl with everything you want in it, you hand it over to one of the buffet chefs who cook the noodles in a broth of your choice.
The miso one I tried hit all the right flavour notes.
Beyond noodles, the buffet is stocked with vegetarian versions of Asian favourites where beef and chicken is subbed for seitan and tofu.
There are vegan options too such as the maki rolls I tried from their selection of sushi.
Dumplings also seem to be popular here. I tried some packed with mushrooms and tofu that hit the spot once I dabbed them in some chili oil.
The vegan BBQ "pork" buns are soft and fluffy and actually much better than many of the real BBQ pork buns I've had in the city.
Dessert selections are limited but vegans should take note that Blossom doesn't use gelatin in any of its fruit and sesame puddings (they use konjac instead).
