Toronto Adventures: Planta Restaurant
Eating has been one of my favorite activities here in Toronto. We have had some truly delectable meals out and I’m loving the easy access to amazing food living in the city affords us. Where we live in Utah there’s no Postmates, Doordash or Uber Eats. We can’t even get a pizza delivered to the house so I’m forced to cook more nights than not. Usually I love the process and creativity of cooking but I have to admit that I’m really enjoying the little respite living in Toronto has brought me from grocery lists, meal plans and clean up!
One of my favorite spots in Toronto is Planta, a vibey vegan restaurant in Yorkville that serves up the best plant based food I’ve ever had. To be clear I am not a vegan, but I love exploring all kinds of cuisines. I was not even a little disappointed by Planta’s menu and I’m especially fond of their creative cocktails that I’ve dubbed health elixirs due to their inclusion of medicinal ingredients like activated charcoal. I realize for some that vegan cuisine can sound a little scary but I’m telling you, if you like fresh farmer’s market ingredients delivered in unique and delicious ways you will love Planta as much as I do!
My kids were definitely skeptical at first about an all vegetable meal but after their first bite Planta had them convinced!
The best part of the meal is how good you feel afterwards for not only taking one day to support our earth by going vegan, but by supporting the health and digestion of your body by eliminating all the junk that can often slow you down. Oh and then there’s the sweet medicinal effects of imbibing a couple of their special health elixirs…bourbon has healing qualities too people!
