Fresh in Toronto

Fresh is another Toronto restaurant that was recommended to us. We had no idea what we were in for and it was yummers.

Upon sitting we were warned that the kitchen was about 35 minutes behind except for starters and smoothies. So we started with that. In Canada, do as Canadians do and order yourself some poutine! It’s fries with cheese curds and gravy. The legend we were told is that someone was carrying all these ingredients separately and dropped them only to find they were delicious together. Sounds like something I would do! We ordered the green poutine and I got a radiant smoothie. Hubby got a banana split milkshake.

Yummers! The vegan version of poutine works for me! The menu is a bit overwhelming, so I asked our server what was popular and landed on the crispy cauliflower tacos. Hubby picked out the Beyond Meat cheeseburger, as usual. He’s so happy to be eating cheeseburgers again.

The portions were so big! We found this to be true throughout Toronto. We both really enjoyed our entrees and they came out in reasonable time. I guess the kitchen was able to catch up.

Though we were fairly full, we had to try a dessert and decided on the chocolate fudge cake. Though, to be honest, it was hubby’s second dessert after the banana split shake.

It tasted very chocolate and the icing was too much. We didn’t finish it.

The space is cute, but be warned that the tables are super close together if only two of you.

Fresh gets four out of five vegan cupcakes. We really enjoyed our entrees and the poutine. And it’s easy to get full here, so don’t order too much. Yummers!
