Gold Winner enVie - A Vegan Kitchen
Silver Winner The Wooden Monkey, Halifax
Bronze Winner Heartwood
This chic vegan kitchen serves up meatless and wheatless meals for the herbivore at heart. Not yet a year old, this restaurant snags the gold by keeping their menu “innovative with a modern edge.” enVie steps into the animal rights zone, replicating popular meat dishes and ‘veganizing’ them. Try their spin on the Philly cheese steak, made from homemade seitan and drizzled with cashew, veggie ‘cheese’ sauce. It’s foolproof “vegan trickery,” say owners Diandra Phipps and Cory Urquhart. “We want people to fall in love with our flavours and see what vegan food can offer.” enVie looks to impact change, while promises to thrill your taste buds.
