We could feel the love through the delicious cooking at One Love!
After our visit to see the High Park Cherry Blossoms, we took the subway over to Bloor & Bathurst (one block up from Bloor Station) to One Love Vegetarian Restaurant. I had never visited an exclusively vegetarian Caribbean restaurant, though Caribbean cuisine has loads of veggie options. I love that Toronto is such a multicultural city, and with that comes exciting food and restaurant options.
It was our first trip to this cafe and certainly won’t be our last. The establishment is entirely vegan. It’s primarily designed for take-out dining, but there are a few tables for sitting indoors. The restaurant describes itself as “Toronto’s Go-To Place for Caribbean Creole Dishes” and I would have to agree.
Justin ordered the BBQ Tofu Stir Fry, which was described on the menu as: “organic tofu with sweet peppers, Vidalia onions and tantalizing sauce served with organic basmati rice and peas, fried plantains and avocado slices.”
I ordered the chickpea and potatoes over basmati rice with fried plantains and avocado. Both meals were flavorful, hearty, super delicious and very satisfying. We also noticed some Roti selections on the menu with various fillings, such as textured vegetable protein, seasoned Jamaican pumpkin, and chickpeas and potatoes. We’ll have to try those out someday.
We couldn’t resist ordering some dessert after our yummy meal. Justin and I got a pair of vegan cupcakes – cookies & cream, and hibiscus coconut.
We love One Love Vegetarian Restaurant and can’t wait to return for more. It’s located in the heart of the city near Bloor and Bathhurst, so there’s really no excuse to check it out. Let me know what you think when you dine there!
