#5For5: Prime Plantbased Restaurants

Here is a list of restaurants that I plan to try, compiled from friendly recommendations – everything from casual meal with a smoothie, to getting dressed up and making an evening out of it.

MeeT (on Main)

MeeT on Main | @meetonmain

Now with two locations on Main Street and in GastownMeeT is the place to find familiar food done the vegan way. Reading the menu will have you wanting to order everything and this is a great restaurant to try if you are in the mood for comfort food. MeeT has a wide selection of burgers, fries, salads, pastas, desserts and cocktails that will satisfy everyone.

Buddha Full

Buddha Full | @buddhafullprovisions

Owners Geremie Voigt and Kyla Rawlins made their dreams of educating people on nutrition and conscious choices a reality by opening the first raw, organic, vegan and gluten-free café on the North Shore. Grab one of the 20 delicious smoothies if you’re on the go, or sit and savour a flavour packed Buddha Bowl or large salad. All the plantbased menu items reflect their philosophy of sourcing local and fresh ingredients.

The Acorn

The Acorn | @acornvancouver

The award-winning Acorn restaurant focuses on creating inventive and beautiful dishes that cater to plant-forward, vegan and gluten free diners.  Meet your friends for a classy weekend brunch and enjoy healthy, fresh food complete with $4 mimosas, which are part of their new summer menu. Even the New York Times, has reviewed this restaurant and says that the Acorn is “visually alluring and, more importantly, delicious.”

Indigo Age Café

Indigo Age Cafe | @theindigoage

Indigo Age Café wants their customers to understand that the best food for you is also the best for the environment. They not only provide an array of raw vegan breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts but they also teach classes on how to prepare your own delicious plantbased meals at home. My friends could not stop talking about trying the Ukrainian pierogi plate with a milkshake from the juice bar. Seems a bit odd, but why not?

ZEND Conscious Lounge

ZEND Lounge | @zendlounge

This trendy Yaletown restaurant calls itself the ‘healthiest restaurant in Vancouver‘ and with their menu of 100% organic ingredients, it is easy to agree. ZEND knows how to create a menu of nourishing food and botanical drinks that are bursting with taste. From crepes to tacos to a triple chocolate torte, you may have a hard time choosing from the intriguing menu. Also, if you eat here, you will be giving back – all of the profits from ZEND are donated to charity.

Vancouverites are fortunate to live in an international city that offers a wide range of restaurants to enjoy, so why not take advantage? Even if you are in need of a midnight snack after a late movie, try the Naam Restaurant. Open 24/7, this Kitsilano based favourite hang-out continues to please. Eat, enjoy and be nourished!
