The Hogtown Vegan- Experience And Review

To check out more posts from my trip to Toronto click here.

So this was the last place we went to and it was definitely our favourite. As you can probably tell by the name it’s vegan and offers a bunch of amazing foods most of which are vegan alternatives for meat based foods. The place itself is really cozy and has a really cool vibe.

We ordered the buffalo wings and the Philly cheesesteak with a side of fries and as you can probably see below their portions were huge. We had to take most of the Philly cheesesteak with us because we couldn’t finish but it was so worth it. The fries were the best fries we had in Toronto and their cheese was so good. It didn’t taste like real cheese that much but it just had such a nice flavour to it that it didn’t even matter. The price was also really good for the amount we got which is always a plus!

Overall, I absolutely loved this place and would definitely recommend checking it out if you’re ever in the neighbourhood. I’m so glad we this was the last restaurant we went to in Toronto because it really lived up to the hype!

Udupi Palace- Experience And Review

To check out more posts from my trip to Toronto click here.

This is another restaurant that we were super excited about. We hadn’t had South Indian food in forever and we were really looking forward to trying this place out. Plus the Udupi Palace had really good reviews online and the food looked good so we were excited.

When we first walked in we saw the beautiful decorations. They were so pretty and gave the restaurant a really nice Indian feel to it. The paintings were really beautiful in particular and they were so nice to look at while were eating.

We ordered the fries, the assorted palace hor-d’oeuvres, the idli manchurian and the vegetable uthapam. The fries are fried potatoes so literally there is no way you could mess that up (some people do apparently…) so we loved them. The assorted palace hor-d’oeuvres were really good and the portion was great for the price. The idli manchurian was the best out of all the dishes and I am definitely going to try to replicate that one at home! The uthapam was good but bland- it didn’t have much spices or the right amount of salt for my sister (I didn’t try it myself because I was preoccupied with the fries…). I would definitely recommend checking out this place if you like Indian food and especially if you’re a fan of South Indian food because their idli was amazing and their dosa’s have gotten really good reviews too although I haven’t tried the dosa’s out myself.

Overall, I think we had a great experience here and the majority of the dishes we had were absolutely delicious.

Cosmic Treats- Experience And Review

To check out more posts from my trip to Toronto click here.

So Cosmic Treats was the second restaurant we went to on our first day in Toronto. We had heard a lot of good reviews of it online so we were looking forward to it and had high expectations. However, unfortunately we were a little disappointed by it.

So let’s start with the cupcakes. We ordered one vanilla and one chocolate. They both looked really good and the vanilla one had little bunny ears (it was during the Easter weekend). The taste was a little too sugary for us and it was one of those things where the first few bites taste amazing but then your mouth is just like TOO SWEET STOP. The flavour was really good though I can’t complain about that.

We also ordered some cheese sticks to balance out the too sweet cupcakes and to be honest they were only just okay. Like they weren’t bad but they just were not great. Maybe it’s just me and I personally didn’t like it. The filling was jalapeno flavoured cheese which I felt was too jalapeno-ey (I don’t know how else to describe it…). The cheese’s texture was nice though- it was hot and gooey and soft.

So that was my experience at Cosmic Treats. The cupcakes were nice and the cheese sticks were okay-ish. I would recommend going there just because the neighbourhood is so cool and hipstery you will love it especially if you like graffiti and artsy areas.

Planta Queen- Experience And Review

We were famished by the time we reached Toronto so we decided to head straight to Planta Queen- a vegan Asian restaurant we had been hearing so much about. Our reservation was for a little later but they were so sweet and said that we could we could sit down earlier.

The restaurant itself was absolutely gorgeous with paintings of dragons and lots of trees and chandeliers. It was a really fancy place which honestly I felt a little under dressed for. I felt like I should be wearing a shiny dress or something… 😂

Now on to the main stuff- the food! We had the General Lee’s Cauliflower, Kung Pao Eggplant and plain sticky rice.

What we loved:

It looked absolutely delicious and tasted even better. We ended up finishing everything and were super satisfied with the meal. It tasted very authentic like something you would have at an authentic Chinese restaurant which was really nice because sometimes when people try to create a vegan version of something it kind of loses that authentic flavour.

The staff were super nice and friendly and they let us sit down even though we were early which was super sweet of them. The server also kept checking up on us and making sure we didn’t need anything even though they were quite busy. The food was also cooked well and arrived quickly so we didn’t wait too long which is always nice.

What we didn’t love:

The portions were not the best compared to other Asian restaurants. They weren’t really less but it wasn’t a large amount like you would get at a regular Chinese restaurant. Since it was on the expensive side I expected the portions to be larger than they were. I usually get much larger portions for a lower price when I get takeout.

However, it was definitely worth it since it tasted really good and I think it was a fun experience to have.

Overall, it was a fantastic experience- the food was great, the service was great and the restaurant itself was gorgeous.
