Say what you will about gentrification, but the vegan crowd finally has a home in Chinatown, thanks to a wave of trendy plant-based rooms that have set up shop within a few square blocks of each other. Hit [1] Virtuous Pie (583 Main Street) for the Stranger Wings pizza, complete with cashew-based “cheese” and spicy buffalo cauliflower, or [2] Kokomo (611 Gore Avenue) for a superfood-packed acai bowl, then savour a scoop of heavenly non-dairy gelato—we love Drunken Cherry—from [3] Umaluma (235 E Pender Street) before stocking the pantry at [4] Vegan Supply Shop (250 E Pender Street).
