in Gastown & Chinatown

Serving great vegan comfort dishes without the rabbit-food approach, this wildly popular spot can be clamorously busy at times. But it's worth the wait for a wide-ranging array of herbivore- and carnivore-pleasing dishes, from rice bowls and mac 'n' cheese (made from vegan cashew 'cheese') to hearty burgers and poutine-like fries slathered in nut-based miso gravy (our recommendation).

In a shaded courtyard area just off Water St (the city's tiny original jail once stood nearby), it also has a small patio for alfresco dining.
