Even More Vegan Food in Montreal: Sushi and an Italian Café
It’s been awhile since I’ve written a post about eating vegan food in Montreal and since I last did, I’ve discovered a handful of fabulous, already existing veg and veg-friendly places AND a few new joints have opened up. What better time than now to shout out two of my favourites and add a few more restaurants to your #veganinmontreal bucket list?
Vegan Sushi at Sushi Momo
Did someone say vegan sushi?! Earlier this month I had a craving for sushi. Instead of settling for a traditional sushi shop and having to choose between the only two (boring) veg options available (cucumber or avocado rolls), I searched for vegan sushi in Montreal and was elated to find Sushi Momo. SM, open since Dec 2014 as a vegetarian sushi restaurant, now serves only 100% vegan sushi. Think jack fruit, vegan “shrimp” tempura, sweet or spicy tofu and for dessert, fried ice cream. The restaurant is charming, small and always full. Momo offers take-out but I suggest reserving a table so you can indulge in the in-house only specials (including: sushi poutine and the fried Oma roll).
An Italian Café: Café Dei Campi
Café Dei Campi opened just a few short months ago in December 2015 in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie. The café has a laid-back and welcoming vibe, and is more so the place to catch up with a friend over coffee than the place to bring your laptop and catch up on work. All of the homemade sweet and salty treats (from pastries like chocolate-filled cornettos, apple tartlets and brownies, to the soups, sandwiches and pizzette) are vegan. And for your coffee, choose between almond or soy milk. The café isn’t showy about being vegan, so don’t expect any signs advertising vegan food or even any “V” (for vegan) hovering over each item at the counter. Instead, Dei Campi is more focused on providing back-to-basics, comforting and authentic food in a welcoming atmosphere – and that’ll keep you coming back for more (my current stats: 3 times in one week).
