Feist’s favourite restaurant in Toronto. This gem contains a large variety of items ranging from burgers, burritos, sandwiches and appetizers that become a necessary part of your life. The restaurant looks small at first but there is a decent sized patio at the back. The staff is friendly and the service is great. Has a very large quantity of vegetarian/vegan items to accommodate for all types of foodies! Everything is fairly priced and definitely worth its cost. Overall a great place to eat and will easily work itself into your restaurant cycle.
Split Pea Soup – Daily Soup ($5)
- This is a hearty soup for an appetizer especially because it’s lentil based.
- Perfectly seasoned with balanced garlic and onion flavours.
- It’s also surprisingly creamy and rich for a soup that isn’t cream based.
- Fresh cheese curds and veggie gravy
- Gravy is rich/smooth and complements the fries without overpowering them – just how gravy should be
Chicken Karaage ($7)
- Japanese style marinated chicken dusted with corn starch and fried crisp served with a spicy karashi mustard mayo
- The chicken is bite sized, not overly battered like some restaurants do with this dish
- Crispy on the outside and goes well with the mustard – exactly what you look for in chicken karaage
Onions Rings ($4 – small, $6 – large)
- Crispy with a good batter to onion ratio, and not greasy at all.
- Thick and must try with the jalapeño sauce they provide you with at your table
Sesame Coleslaw (Side)
- Too sweet and vinegary
- Not the best side to get unless you really don’t want to get fries/rice
Tofu Cream Croquettes – 4 ($4)
- Crispy panko crusted croquettes of fresh tofu and cream cheese served with a spicy chipotle BBQ sauce
- Deep fried crispy exterior with a tofu and cream cheese filling
- The tofu is barley detectable and with the sauce these croquettes are served with, this appetizer is highly addictive
- The mildly sweet and spicy tomato based barbecue sauce perfectly compliments the soft and mellow flavour of the croquette
Mushroom and Goat Cheese Salad ($12)
- Sautéed portabella and white mushrooms, goat cheese and roasted red peppers in a warm soy and balsamic dressing over a bed of field mix and cherry tomatoes, sprinkled with walnuts
- Warm, salty, tart and the mushrooms add a meatiness to the salad
- The walnuts add a great crunchy texture to the salad
Veggie Burger ($7)
- So good we’ll fool you into believing that it’s beef. Grilled and topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mustard, relish, pickles and green onion mayo
- Tastes just like a regular hamburger – definitely could have fooled me
- The bun is nice and toasty – what a veggie burger should taste like
Southwestern Burger ($9)
- Lettuce, salsa, guacamole, cheddar & Monterey Jack cheese and fried jalapeño peppers
- Quite spicy as they use fresh jalapeños, the guacamole softens the spice a little bit and has a nice light flavour
- You can barely taste the salsa, but overall a pretty good burger!
Vegetarian Souvlaki ($6.50)
- Soy protein on a skewer marinated in herbs and spices then grilled and served on a Greek style pita with tzatziki, homemade BBQ sauce, onions and tomato
- This is for the vegetarians that want to taste or have a nice “chicken” souvlaki – you can’t even tell the difference
- The homemade BBQ sauce is a nice addition to it – the pita has a nice toasty taste to it
Crispy Veggie Chicken Burrito ($8)
- Crispy breaded soy protein, cheddar & Monterey Jack cheeses, grilled onions, lettuce, green onion mayo and salsa
- The first time I ever ate it I thought they had added real chicken to my burrito accidentally!
- Between the salsa, crispy veggie chicken, mayonnaise and cheese, I have yet to find a better vegetarian burrito where the flavours meld so well together
- A hint of sweetness with salty, creamy and savoury notes in every bite. My favourite vegetarian entree on the menu
Crispy Fried Salmon Burrito ($9)
- Crusted Atlantic salmon fillet with cheddar & Monterey Jack cheeses, grilled onions, lettuce, gin cayenne tartar sauce and salsa
- The better of the salmon burritos, cheesy, filling and the crispiness of the salmon goes well with the burrito – could go without the salsa
Grilled Salmon Burrito ($9)
- Atlantic salmon fillet, grilled sweet peppers, goat cheese, lettuce, grilled onions, garlic dill mayo and salsa
- My least favourite burrito here – the goat cheese adds an unwanted taste and texture to the grilled salmon
- Not a huge fan of the salsa and dill mayo as well, not what you would expect from a grilled salmon burrito – perhaps their homemade BBQ sauce would be a better complement
- A nice variety of delicious items
- Vegan/Vegetarian friendly
- Fairly priced menu items
- Good staff and service
- Can be very busy during rushes and make wait times very long (but this is expected for any good restaurant nowadays!)
