Horn of Africa

Several vegan items. The vegetarian platter (split peas in yellow sauce, lentils in spicy bebere sauce, lentis in brown sauce, potato/cabbage/carrots in yellow sauce and green salad) is vegan and an awesome bargain at $7 per person. Food is eaten with your hands using the pancake-like injera bread as a utensil. Open late.

Table Vegetarian Eatery, The
1230 Wellington St. (view map)

West end location, pay by the pound veg/vegan buffet. Kindof expensive. Organic where possible.
Contact: 613-729-5973

Most Indian and Mediterranean restaurants have a good assortment of veg/vegan dishes. Most Japanese restaurants can prepare veg sushi. Be careful with Thai restuarants as some "vegetarian" dishes have fish broth/stock. Always ask your server or better yet, the owner or cook. I find saying I have a deathly food allergy to meat/fish/dairy gets you through the smoke quite quickly :)
