Maybe you’ve been here: you’re out with friends for dinner at a restaurant of the group’s choosing. After perusing the menu for a few minutes you can’t find a single vegetarian dish. When you ask the waiter, they look puzzled and upset. “I think there’s a side salad you can get without the bacon,” they suggest weakly. You resign yourself to another evening of bread and some kind of boring pasta dish while everyone goes to town on intricate dishes covered in some kind of “jus.”

It can be hard to find places to eat as a vegetarian. Even harder as a vegan. And just because you don’t eat meat doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a fancy meal once in a while! But where to go? Enter Vegecursion, a monthly food tour dedicated to Toronto’s best vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

Savour six tasting dishes from some of Toronto’s finest vegan and vegetarian-friendly restaurants and let your tour guide tell you all about the city’s evolving vegetarian and vegan culinary scene (including recommendations guaranteed to please even your pickiest carnivore pals!) along the way. And you don’t have to be vegetarian to head out on this tour—trying to eat more healthy, eco-conscious and ethically aware food is something I think we can all get behind. Bon Appetit!

This tour is supported and assisted by the Toronto Vegetarian Association (TVA). More information and tickets can be found here.
