The Foundation


It’s likely that many a die-hard carnivore has admitted defeat at The Foundation. The textbook-hipster joint—complete with mason jars masquerading as water glasses—does vegetarian so well it’s arguable that staunch meat-eaters may not even realize they’re going without taste of our fine feathered, finned, and four-legged friends.

At the very least, this must be the case for anyone who’s ever helped themselves to the aptly named Utopian Nachos: a massive serving of baked tortilla chips loaded with black beans, corn, jalapeños, and layers upon layers of perfectly melted cheese. The Spicy Peanut (rotini pasta tossed in a rich, holistic peanut sauce) is another lip-smacking standout, while the flavour-packed Katered Affair (a guilt-free smorgasbord of hummus, greens, tofu, and yams) comes in a portion big enough to cover lunch the next day.

Sure, the booming Biggie album on loop means it can get a little loud here on Friday nights, but why talk when you can be stuffing your face with hearty peanut burgers, coco-chili-lime-glazed veggies, and, oh yeah, some of the tastiest sangria in town?
