Getting Fresh In Toronto

145 comments

IMG_8014

Our weather was dreary and rainy on Friday and Saturday, but Sunday was a beautiful summer day!

IMG_7965

Eric was returning from a weekend in Montreal for his brother’s stag, so I picked him up when his train got in. He looked a little rough around the edges (think Hangover movie) and told me he was craving a piece of dandelion! lol.

I knew just the fix for him… Fresh! It was only about a 15 minute walk from where we were.

I started with a drink Eric probably could have used- the Detoxifier!

IMG_7946

Made up of Kale, spinach, parsley, celery, & apple.

I loved it…I usually don’t juice fruits, but the apple was a nice treat in there.

Eric ordered the ‘Blue Lagoon’ which was a creamy blend of blueberry, mango, and banana.

IMG_7947

To start, we ordered the Quinoa-battered Onion Rings with Chipotle Avocado sauce.

IMG_7943

I’ve never ordered these before, but I’ve heard so many good things about them. Well, they are AMAZING!They are made from scratch and battered with puffed quinoa and sprinkled with sea salt. They are so crispy they must have been fried. Probably good hangover food for Eric!

The Chipotle avocado sauce was also fantastic for dippin’.

IMG_7944

For my main, I ordered a wrap I haven’t had before- the Kathmandu wrap! It’s made up of a chickpea curry filling with tahini sauce, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, red onion, and alfalfa sprouts. Loved it.

IMG_7950

Eric ordered the Black Bean Burrito made up of spicy black beans with chipolte avocado sauce, cilantro, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, red onion, & sprouts. We’re on such a huge wrap kick these days!

He liked it, but said he prefers the Grilled Vegetable and pesto wrap. I would have to agree. The grilled vegetable wrap is my fav.

IMG_7952

For dessert, we shared the Vanilla Cupcake

IMG_7956

and the Double Chocolate Fudge Cake!

IMG_7955

Which I concluded is the best thing a girl can eat when PMS strikes…or anytime, really…no crumb could escape.

IMG_7954

My all-time favourite dessert served at Fresh is the Carrot Cake though! The only problem is, they are always sold out of it every time we go! They bring in their desserts from Sweets from the Earth. I’ve only been to Fresh once when they had it available (in 2009). It was heavenly…

After dinner, we walked around lakeshore for a couple hours…what a perfect summer evening it was. There were so many people out walking, biking, rollerblading, and running. I would love to live around Lakeshore if I could pick any spot in Toronto. It’s so lively and beautiful. Lakeshore always makes me want to move back to the city!

IMG_8081-2

We walked a lot of the route that I ran my very first half marathon- The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront half!

IMG_8085-2

Our walk was a bit less exhausting though. And a lot more relaxing. :)

We saw lots of Canadian Geese.

oh, this was a great post to read, angela! it’s always extra-fun to read about spots you can personally identify with (like your thrive outing, too!). i LOVE lakeshore area. my brother and SIL used to live on queen’s quay, so i spent many happy times wandering the waterfront. fresh – i’ve been there once and loved it. glad you and eric has such a fantastic day. maybe you can get back a few more times this summer!

Reply

14 AdrienneCarolyn June 27, 2011

Mmm Fresh! Perhaps I should go there for lunch today!! I’m so glad you had a great time walking around my hood! Your pictures are SO close to my condo! You must have been walking on my running route! I run the Lakeshore almost every day in the summer! It’s a great area, although can get a quite drab in the winter. We don’t get the pretty white snow like you country folks ;-)

All those eats look absolutely amazing – I feel like I can taste them right off the screen!

Happy Monday :)

Pretty pictures!!

The carrot cake at Fresh is by Sweets From the Earth — and they sell their cakes out of a lot of stores now… so if you were ever craving it, it could always be available to you!

I was just in Toronto for the first time earlier this month… and I went to Fresh too.. and got the same thing! It was so good!! I want to visit more often because of that place!

20 Andrea @ Vegvacious June 27, 2011

As usual, your photographs are absolutely gorgeous! We usually make it to Toronto for a Leafs game and a Jays game every year, but if anything all we hit is the Eaton Centre. We really need to take a day or two to go down and enjoy the beauty of Toronto!

21 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes June 27, 2011

It sounds like a really perfect day! Fresh sounds like such a great restaurant, I wish there were something like here. Around where I live, it’s quite difficult to eat out – not so many veggie options!

the pictures of the bench and grass are just beautiful. I love the sun beams you captured. That meal looks divine and so fresh. I’m sure he was feeling much better after filling up on such good foods!

Sounds like a great day. I think we finally have the same sunshine here that you had yesterday.

Do you and Eric go to Montreal often? We try to go a few times a year.

The chipotle + avocado combo has my brain rolling in a bunch of directions – I’ve been on such a huge ‘cado kick lately and I used to love chipotle mayonaise, so I can only imagine how amazing a vegan chipotle spread would be!

Of course, my eyes zeroed right in on the Kathmandu wrap, named for my adopted city! It looks delicious, and I would love to recreate it here — if only I could find tahini in the stores. And that carrot cake. Oh my word. Do you think that Fresh might ship a slice to Kathmandu?

Thanks for this post. You captured how great a day in T.O. can be. I just discovered Fresh a couple months ago near my yoga studio. I’m on a mission to try everything on the menu by the end of this year…. can’t wait to try those onion rings next!

I love Ontario. Being from BC, the city, the busyness, and the atmosphere of Toronto just sucks me in.
We typically go to Ottawa every Canada day, but can’t make it this year due to work. This is devastating! There is nothing, nothing like Canada Day in Ottawa.

63 mari June 27, 2011

oh my goodness, the chipotle avocado sauce looks so delish. I made your 15-minute avocado cream pasta last night and i think by adding some chipotle to it you might end up with something similar! ps Im obsessed with that recipe and plan on putting the avocado sauce on everything. :)

64 Andrea June 27, 2011

Gorgeous post! The posts where I recognize the scenery are my favorites haha, and your photos of the food at Fresh are absolutely mouthwatering! Yum. I’ve never had the Kathmandu wrap, looks divine. I had the tempeh ceaser salad the last time I went and it was honestly the best salad I’ve had in quite some time. Mmm, Fresh.

Angela – which location did you go to? Every single time I go (which is 1-2x a week) there is alway carrot cake! It is the best thing ever made. I have even ordered whole ones for birthday parties! Expensive, but delicious!

Love the onion rings…never tried the avocado dip though. I usually get mine with the BBQ sauce. I think I’ll switch it up next time! Kathmandu is one of my top orders as well. Sometimes I order it on a bed of greens when I’m not in the wrap mood ;)

67 Anna June 27, 2011

Omg, you’ve outdone yourself with pictures today – the sky in those last couple is so stunning! And I love the dusky light in the one with the flowers. I have total place-envy… and yes, food-envy. Those onion rings! Those wraps! I gotta get to the shops, asap…

This looks delicious! My boyfriend is originally from Toronto (we live Pennsylvania now) and we’ll be heading up this weekend to celebrate both Canada Day and Independence Day with his family and to take in the Phillies-Blue Jays series.
His family is very traditional Greek so he keeps telling me that they’ll be stuffing us to the gills, but if we manage to sneak away for a meal, I’ll suggest Fresh be our stop!

I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now and I just wanted to tell you how amazing your recipes are and your personality is wonderful! Your updates are always so happy and glowing. Thanks to you my husband and I are making baby steps towards going from vegan to raw and have enjoyed implementing your dinners, desserts, and lunches along the way. I always look forward to reading your website in the morning when I get to work and then end up wishing we had a restaurant that served anything as delectable as these photos look! I think Texans really love their meat and potatoes. :)

The first time I ever tried vegan food was at Fresh. Back then, I was not a very adventurous eater and I thought everything on the menu looked gross… but I ordered the Thai burger and instantly fell in love!

Is it a bit crazy that I am excited for my trip to Toronto purely as it means I get to eat at Fresh!? And can i add my trip to Toronto isn’t actually scheduled until July 2012!? LOL!

The Sweets from the Earth carrot cake is something special! Have you visited Vegetarian Haven yet? They often have the cake in stock and their food is so so delicious! I’ve found whole cakes at two whole foods stores on queen west Organic Boutique and the Leslieville Cheese Market.

Sunday was a gorgeous day in Toronto. I was in town visiting friends (one of whom coincidentally lives in my old apartment building! LOL)
Saturday wasn’t too bad either…it rained but not enough to keep us from going to the zoo.

My ALL time favourite restaurant! I went there all the time during my first year of school..probably not the best choice being a student and all but I couldn’t resist! :D I like the veggie burgers but the wraps and fresh bowls are to die for too :)

As a result, our blue raspberry cupcakes turned out great and provided an extremely tasty
taste that I haven’t tasted anywhere else.
