As wonderful as vegan food in Toronto is, most restaurants seem to fall into either the fresh/wholesome/granola or the faux meat/faux cheese/comfort category. But to correlate with the multiculturalism our city is known for, infusing some culture into the cuisine is also important. Enter Rosalinda—a newer, Mexican, plant-based restaurant with a cool hipster greenhouse ambiance. Truly made from and inspired by plants, the food at Rosalinda focuses on a different vegetable for each, delicious dish. Everything is warm, flavourful, and bursting with colour. The elevated vibe helps, too, for the perfect night out—like an anniversary dinner or even New Year's Eve?
