Parfait pour un craving de cuisine du Moyen-Orient - Edit

Si vous avez un craving pour de la cuisine du Moyen-Orient ou de l'Inde (falafel, shish taouk, samosa, etc.) mais ne désirez pas pour autant contribuer à la souffrance animale, 57Cals est fait pour vous! C'est sûr que ce n'est toutefois pas l'option la plus santé: après tout et, comme le nom du restaurant le suggère, un seul falafel compte pour 57 calories. ;)
Du sandwich philly à l'assiette shawarma en passant par le traditionnel hummus, il y a beaucoup de choix. Si vous venez pour la première fois, je vous suggère de commander le "Plateau d'essai". Il n'est pas sur le menu officiel mais comprend, pour seulement 20$, plusieurs saveurs différentes (sandwich traditionnel, sandwich philly, sandwich raffi, environ une douzaine de falafels et samosas). Parfait pour partager à deux!
Par contre, gardez en tête que l'endroit est davantage un comptoir à emporter qu'un "vrai" restaurant. Même s'il y a quelques places assises, ce n'est pas très chaleureux. On se rapproche beaucoup de l'ambiance d'un fast food "classique". Aussi, malheureusement, toutes les commandes (incluant celles qui sont destinées à être consommées sur place) viennent avec des assiettes et des ustensiles en plastique. On se retrouve donc avec beaucoup de déchets qui, pourtant, auraient pu être évités. J'ai failli retirer une étoile de la note et j'espère sincèrement que le restaurant réduira bientôt l'usage de contenants à usage unique. Le temps d'attente est souvent un peu long: si vous savez déjà ce que vous allez prendre, téléphonez 30 minutes avant votre arrivée pour ne pas trop patienter une fois que vous serez sur place.
Au final, si vous résidez à Laval, je vous recommande fortement de donner une chance à 57Cals. Par contre, si vous habitez à Montréal et que vous avez envie de manger sur place, le restaurant n'en vaut pas vraiment le détour. Surtout que, si vous voulez essayer leurs plats, ils sont désormais offerts à Herbivores (nouvelle épicerie végane sur Saint-Denis)!

As good as Vegan can get! - Edit

Looking for some exotic tastes and flavours? 57 Cals is simply charming. Not only do they deserve a mention for being a vegan restaurant in Laval, I can confirm that it is worth the detour even if you live east of highway 25! They also offer catering services (I have used their catering services myself already and will definitely use it again). Went there many times and had each item on the menu, I have never been disapointed. Long live 57 Cals! I provide my #2Bvegan4 approval seal without hesitation!

Pros: Tastes amazing!, Many items on the menu, Also offers catering services

Cons: Very few seats available to eat on site, In busy hours, getting your order may take a while

At least a good vegan place in Laval. - Edit

Excelente food. I love it! I enjoyed a delicious quesadilla and it was wonderful. The service was very good. The place is small but the food and the price are excellent.

THE spot for good fast food - Edit

Although the restaurant is not located in a charming area, the owners are exceptionally nice and always willing to accomodate you.

Forget about bland, healthy, fat-free vegan meals. There, you rejoice : salty, greasy, yummy, just like any fast food joint, except this is cruelty free. And the portions are huge.

The menu is quite fun too with veganized version of Libanese food among other things

Pros: Nice staff, Very good value, Enormous portions

Cons: Lack of atmosphere, No toilet

trop huileux - Edit

J'avais hâte d'essayer ce resto Vegan/végétarien, mais quelle déception.
Les falafels sont ultra huileux et les frites aussi. Les régulières étaient un peu huileuses, mais les frites épicées étaient vraiment ultra huileuses, on voyait l'huile au fond du plat. Pour ce qui est de l'accueil, il était excellent, et vu que c'était notre première fois la propriétaires nous a offert d'essayer sans frais le burger philly (vraiment bon) et un autre avec falafel (moins bon). Bref je n'y retournerai pas... et nous étions 3 en accord avec la décision.

Wonderful treat - Edit

They use the same amazing falafel recipe as Crazy Falafel except 57Cals is all vegetarian/vegan.

The vegan Philly burger is filled wth tofu but doesn't look or taste anything like tofu. I have high standards and this blew me away. Unlike the photo, though, the green peppers are sauteed... which it's a very good thing!

My meat-eating friends loved their food as well. Lucky for them, they live in the delivery zone (Laval via justeat.ca). I'll just have to find an excuse to go there more often! My goal is to eventually try everything on the menu.

Convince your car-driving friends/family to give you a lift... it's definitely worth the trip.

Pros: Best falafel recipe, Tasty vegan "meat", Worth the trip

Cons: Location, Limited Delivery Zone
