Respond to Review of Vegetarian Haven
Review: I'm not kidding at all when I say that I was blown away by Vegetarian Haven. Situated in a quaint area, with a terrace and lovely decor, Vegetarian Haven offers an unforgettable vegan dining experience. I went to what one of the servers dubbed The Haven (and rightly so) this past weekend while on a visit to Toronto. I went with an omnivore and my boyfriend, a vegan like myself. I ordered the tofu drumsticks, thanks to rave reviews on this page (thank you!) about them--they were absolutely delicious, though, when they were served to me, I was a little bit wary of eating them, for they had an uncanny resemblance to actual chicken drumsticks. What I especially liked about The Haven is that they actually bring out the prepared special of the day; they show it to you, beautifully prepared and wonderfully fragrant. Of course, they had me sold when they showed me the special of the day, which consisted of a seitan "steak", a cucumber roll of shiitake mushrooms, salad, mushroom sauce, fresh hummus, and sweet potato noodles (how original!). Another thing that stood out was that all of their meals offer a great variety of foods; they don't serve you just protein, or just veggies, or just noodles. Each menu item is complemented by a variety of different types of foods. The wait staff and the service they offered were impeccable, and I don't use this word lightly. They were humourous, friendly, helpful, kind, informative, knowledgeable. Any diner could not ask for more. Dining at the Vegetarian Haven was the highlight of my experience in Toronto. A+ service, and did I mention that the desserts were most decadent and, to put it lightly, to die for? Try their cheesecake and fried apples!
