Respond to Review of The Hogtown Vegan
Review: As others have said, it isn't the cheapest option for vegan/veggie food in Toronto, but the quality is high enough that it's worth the occasional splurge, especially as it's not often that you get vegan versions of southern comfort food. I went for the pepper steak and dumplings with mashed sweet potato and greens, and had no complaints - it was kind of like a less spicy seitan goulash, or some kind of stew. I'd pass on the apple pie though, not really worth the $8.50 they're charging for it - my girlfriend had the mousse, but I'm not really a good judge of mousse... Be warned:it's not a huge place, and it gets busy on a Friday night, so get there early, or be prepared for a bit of waiting while other people finish their meal. Edit: Having been back here numerous times since writing the first review, I would add that in tiem this has grown to be by far my favourite veggie restaurant in Toronto, and the first recommendation I give to anyone asking where to get food in that fine city. Every option I've tried here has been great, but the seitan 'beef' sandwich with mushroom gravy was the absolute standout for me. Very worth your time.
