We live in Victoria. It would be socially irresponsible of us to not make a post about vegetarian options. Our city is so conscious of animal rights and diet restrictions that we in turn have a multitude of veggie and vegan options at our fingertips. But which cuisine reigns supreme? Let us tell you.
Green Cuisine: Nestled in the heart of Market Square, Green Cuisine is the hidden gem of the veggie world. The restaurant is set up somewhat like a buffet, with various food items being charged by weight. If you’re looking for fresh alternatives to greasy cuisine, you’ve come to the right place!
Lotus Pond: Vegan Chinese food? Yes please! This spot ALSO offers the pay-by-weight option, or if you so choose you may order off the menu instead. All meat based dishes are a sham! When you see “chicken”, “pork”, or other meat options on the menu, you will be happy to know that it is in fact a delicious vegan alternative to said meat. Enjoy all of the flavours of classic chinese dishes while still maintaining that plant based diet.
Rebar: Do we even need to tell you? Rebar is the most well-known and delicious restaurants in the land! They offer tons of vegeterian options to meet any diet restriction. A staple on the island- you haven’t lived until you’ve hit Rebar. Taste dishes such as the mushroom and swiss almond burger, the ‘super bowl’ and the Rebar poutine and let your tastebuds party!
Venus Sophia Tea Room: This is exactly what it sounds like. A classic and beautiful tea room which doubles as a scrumptious vegetarian eatery. Think tea party at the Empress spek. The menu is full of delicious soups, salads and desserts to nibble on while you enjoy your afternoon tea.
Be Love: With a slogan like “pure nourishment”, you know you’re in for some real good for the soul grub. Their mission statement posits a commitment to organic and plant based foods to nourish the body and the mind. Come in for brunch, dinner, treats and even fresh organic cocktails to enjoy at happy hour. Be Love is an incredible choice if you’re veggie and looking to expand your organic horizons.
