Vegetarian-friendly diners to try in Montréal

From high-end restaurants to local diners, Montréal’s culinary scene has it all. Some of our most famous and iconic restaurants don’t feature table linens and coat-checks, but are fun, laid-back affairs that sometimes don’t even have chairs. Hitting up our city’s famous “greasy spoons” for counter-top favourites like burgers and fries is an age old tradition, but what if you don’t eat meat?  Luckily, Montréal is home to a great variety of classic diners with awesome vegetarian options that will satiate your comfort-food cravings and won’t break the bank. Gibeau Orange Julep – 7700 Décarie Boulevard Although gone are the days of carhops and window-side service at the Orange Julep, “The Big Orange” remains a popular hangout. Here, vegetarian options, like veggie burgers and “Pogos” (what we call corndogs), go nicely with a tall frosty cup of Montréal’s famous julep. The pleasant doo-wop soundtrack played over loud speakers completes the wistful walk down memory lane. Restaurant L’Anecdote – 801 Rachel Street East A typical corner diner, L’Anecdote has a menu that not only consists of traditional “greasy-spoon” items like burgers and hot dogs, but also dishes that vegetarians can enjoy. Cases in point, veggie burgers with grilled tofu or a… / Read More →

I Dream of Greenie: Veggie Burgers in Montréal

With Montréal gearing up to participate in the 4th edition of Le Burger Week, we have naught but burgers on the brain. Today we turn our attention to the veggie burger. Everybody seems to have their special favourite, inspiring passionate debates and fierce loyalty among the devoted. Don’t yet know if you’re Team Tofu, or part of the Portobello Posse? With no shortage of variations to choose from, you’ll soon find yourself locked in a heated discussion on what makes the perfect patty. Burger de Ville Burger de Ville’s Portobello Burger is perfect for those who feel most satisfied when a sandwich challenges them to unhinge their jaw for a complete bite. The mushroom cap patty’s naturally meaty flavour can be complimented with any number of Burger de Ville’s free toppings. For a little extra, throw on some cheese (and for the omnivorous, add bacon, who’s judging?) Stack it high! Burger de Ville 5282 Saint-Laurent Boulevard | 59 Westminster North, Montréal West Deville Dinerbar The diversity of the veggie burger format is no more evident than in Deville‘s sumptuous Vegan Burger. This upscale downtown diner has flipped the script, making a roasted Portobello mushroom the “bun” itself, and filling it… / Read More →

Eating Green: Vegetarian Sandwiches in Montréal

LOLA ROSA: HEMPBURGER A staple in the McGill Ghetto neighbourhood for 11 years, vegetarian favourite Lola Rosa offers up the incomparable “hempburger.” Made in-house, the burger’s patty is composed of a mix of hemp seeds, lentils, chia, and grilled tofu, all held together by Lola’s vegan chipotle BBQ sauce. The bun it’s served on is vegan, and so is its guacamole topping. Diners are welcome to keep it vegan with a tapioca-based faux cheese, or choose instead to garnish with an aged cheddar. The Milton restaurant serves this sandwich up with a beautiful salad, but for those who believe burgers have only one true companion, head up to their Du Parc Avenue location for Lola’s deep-fried chickpea french fries. Lola Rosa: 545 Milton St. / 4581 Du Parc Ave. PANTHÈRE VERTE: FALAFEL The falafels made at La Panthère Verte are known city-wide. Fragrant, lightly spiced, and a perfect balance of crunchy and smooth, they are just the thing to convince skeptics that vegan cuisine is not only delicious, but far broader than they imagine. Better save your “I-told-you-so” for later, though; along with the generous amount of falafel, this pita is stuffed with cabbage, carrots, pickles, sauerkraut, alfalfa sprouts, and… / Read More →
