The Hogtown Vegan
Toronto, ON M6H 1M3
The Hogtown Vegan is probably one of the meatiest vegan restaurants in the city. Of course it doesn't carry any dairy or meat products in the restaurant, but it does have a stacked list of omnivorous favourites that look and taste like the real deal. Take the meat- and dairy-free Philly cheese steak sandwich, which to any vegan is a complete novelty. Human-made substitutes for meat and cheese are often ingenious, even if they rarely stack up against the real deal. This sandwich uses slices of house-made seitan (wheat gluten) in lieu of meat, and it’s drizzled with a sauce made from a product by Daiya, a cheese substitute company viewed as a godsend by many vegans.
