Restaurant Review: Veggie Delight

Feel good food coming your wayyyyyy

One of my favourite restaurants in the city. Vegan Jamaican food!

From rotis, plates, and soups, to amazing gluten free pizza ‘cake’, all dishes are loaded with gorgeous flavours that are fresh and so so good for you.

If I’m ever in need of some proper take out – Veggie Delight is where we go.

Globally Local

Picture this 🤔:

You eat a breakfast sandwich and feel great afterwards. You can work out, get on with your day. 🏋️‍♀️ 

Before I went vegan, I knew that if I was going out for fast-food with my friends, I wouldn’t be able to do much after… I would always feel lethargic af! 🤢 

I was basically writing off working out, doing something productive, and enjoying the rest of my day if I picked up some cheesey, eggy breakfast sandwich from a fast-food chain. I just thought that’s the way it is; I would just have to wait to digest it off. 🤷‍♀️ 

That was before going vegan and trying out fast-food spots like Globally Local. 📰

I can do a relatively intensive workout after eating from GL. It’s all plants! It takes no time to digest and it actually gives you energy, rather than takes energy from you.

Featured: My favourite, the ‘Maple Crunch Breakfast Sandwich’ with Sausage filling

Today’s order:

  • The Cordon Bleu
  • 2 Maple Crunch Breakfast Sandwiches with Sausage
  • Caesar Salad
  • Chocolate + Vanilla Milkshakes
  • The Famous Burger (double-stack)

These products should be a must-know for Torontonians everywhere. The now-chain restaurant has quickly found success, having opened more locations in London, Kitchener, and Windsor. Additionally, to come this year, GL is opening another location in Toronto and one in Vaughan. All throughout Covid times! Pretty impressive, but understandable given the quality and variety of foods. 💯

It can be easy to fall into a rut with animal-based eating… physically AND emotionally. The hormone’s and cholesterol that you are ingesting from the animal is added onto yours, making the management of your mental health all that much harder.  😖

You don’t have to worry about this when you’re ordering vegan. Now, I’m not saying ‘eat fried food every day’ 🙂

but treat yourself right with hot commodities like Globally Local.

❗️VEGAN FACT❗️: McDonald’s confines pigs to gestation cages in which during their entire lifetime, they cannot turn around. They are forcibly impregnated, give birth many many times, and fed enormous amounts until they are pressing against the crate bars before becoming your ‘pork’.

Stefano’s Sandwiches

Well, now this hits the bloomin’ mark!!

Check out these sandies from Stefano’s, a newly opened ALL VEGAN ITALIAN sandwich + sides restaurant.

We had to get 3 sandwiches between the two of us and WILL be back for more.

Featured is the All Day Breakfast, Vegan Filet O Fish, and Vegan Fried Chicken and gosh, you cannot go wrong with any one of them.

‘Vegan Filet O Fish

‘Vegan Fried Chicken’

‘All Day Breakfast’

The restaurant’s creators are also the owners of ‘Ufficio’, a popular Italian restaurant at Dundas and Ossington [Toronto] with a wicked vegan menu.

I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners, Stacey Patterson, when I visited Ufficio for a dinner last year. She was delighted to find out that my friends and I were ordering solely from the vegan menu and came over to our table to connect.

She is a force when it comes to adapting with the times and listening to the consumer. She mentioned that this [vegan eating] is where the world is going – where the demand is – and the pandemic only threw that into high gear.

She is also the co-founder of Open Kitchen Toronto (OKTO), which aims to promote and elevate the recognition and education of women across the food and hospitality industry.

Really really well done, Stefano’s!

NOTE: I won’t rank the sandwiches by favourites because of this: I have literally no idea which one was my favourite. I am a sucker for breakfast food, so you would think that the All Day Breakfast sandwich would have been my favourite…wrong…I have NOT been able to stop thinking of the other two just as much. The fried chicken is incredibly flavourful and the texture to both that and the Vegan Filet O Fish is so satisfying.

Maybe seconds will help me be more decisive? 😉
