Gold Winner The Wooden Monkey, Halifax
Silver Winner enVie—A Vegan Kitchen
Bronze Winner Heartwood
The Monkey’s passion for good ingredients is what makes the restaurant stand out from the bunch, hence why it’s a repeat winner in the Best Use Of Local Ingredients category. And that passion carries over to dietary restrictions, too. While The Wooden Monkey isn’t a gluten-free kitchen, its chefs truly care about what their customers are putting in their bodies and will bust their butts to accommodate the needs of its gluten-free diners whenever possible. That means most of the dishes you know and love on its menu can be transformed into meals that won’t destroy your tummy and will curb your hunger.
