If you’re a vegan or vegetarian, I know you feel the struggle of finding good food options when you go out. Maybe you just want to try vegan food- food that’s more environmentally friendly and healthy! While the population of vegans and vegetarians is growing, and many more restaurants are popping up in the city we call home, it can still be hard to find accommodations.
If you’re searching for somewhere to try that’s relatively close to Ryerson, here are some of my favourites!
340 Yonge Street
Right across the street from the SLC, this spot couldn’t be more convenient. They have lots of seating space for many Ryerson students who also get 20% off Monday to Friday from 2-5pm. Lots of great vegan and vegetarian options for students on a budget!
220 Yonge Street
Take a quick walk to the Eaton Centre food court, and hopefully you won’t have to wait in too long of a line! Finish off your vegan meal with one of their very sweet vegan cupcakes.
355 Yonge Street
Ginger is famous for their Vietnamese food- not usually associated with being vegan or vegetarian! They have options that you’ll love to try. Super close to the SLC.
Chipotle Mexican Grill
323 Yonge Street #114
There’s a reason Chipotle is so popular! Easily customizable bowls, burritos, and tacos that can easily be made vegan or vegetarian in a pinch for a quick and filling meal.
10 Dundas Street East #124
Any vegan or vegetarian craving fired pizza can get their fix here. Their regular and gluten-free doughs are vegan, and they also offer vegan cheese. A quick step out on to Dundas Street to build your own pizza.
4 Temperance Street
From the minds of famous vegan restaurant Planta, comes Planta Burger! One of the best places for a great vegan burger and milkshake. Take a nice walk down Yonge street to get there or through the Eaton Centre to stay warm!
Hopefully you’re motivated to go out and try one of these restaurants- even if you aren’t vegan! Enjoy!
