A highly-anticipated restaurant is officially serving up yummy plant-based eats in Oakville.
There’s everything from oh-so-trendy jackfruit to salads to grilled ‘fauxmage’ to chili cheeze dogs.
Burger patties - four types, to be exact - are made with ingredients such as mushrooms, brown rice, chick peas, black beans, lentils, and oats.
This hot-yet-casual dining experience just opened on March 9 ... it's creative and fun, much like a very nearby competitor.
It started in Winnipeg before making its way to the west Greater Toronto Area (first in Burlington -- Hamilton's Ottawa St. location recently opened, too).
Boon Burger Cafe - which proves you don’t necessarily need meat to create a phenomenally satisfying meal - now has a location in the Fortino's plaza at Dundas St. and Neyagawa Blvd.
That's in Vegebitez territory -- this means the ever-popular vegan movement is only going to gain traction in town.
Boon Burger currently has a downtown Burlington location, where their Cowboy burger is the top seller. Dude, it’s beyond delicious.
Made from scratch, burgers are handmade, grilled, baked, and served on a whole wheat bun.
Back in O-Town, we’re told some of the most popular items include the Jamaican Me Crazy burger (with a grilled black bean patty, smoky jerk, coleslaw, pulled jackfruit, coleslaw, red onion and bermuda sauce) and the Pulled Jackfruit Poutine — fries are baked and topped with yams and sprinked with sesame seeds.
The Greek Almighty is also ordered quite often.
If you're unfamiliar with Asian food, jackfruit is a nutrient-dense miracle food of sorts
traced back to India.
It also makes a perfect stand-in for pork (especially for the vegans in your life
and those who choose to go plant-based from time to time).
You can shred it and douse it in BBQ sauce ... the sandwich and poutine are tasty and quite filling (fries have sesame seeds on top).
New items have recently been introduced to the menu, including a round - not square - bun, poutine, and pizza, or ‘peaceza.’ Flavours are changed regularly - -this one’s called ‘Animal Lover,’ topped with fake bacon bits.
This Canadian chain, or “world’s first vegan burger cafe,” has mastered selling plant-based junk food for the masses.
Hot sauce and other (less important) condiments are already on the table, surrounded by a massive roll of brown paper towels.
To wash it all down, there’s oodles of kombucha.
Full of farm animals, the environment is quirky; friendly staff wear black T-shirts reading ‘boonivore’ on the back.
It’s time to get your eat on, Oakville.
