Vegan MoFo day 2: The Foundation

Let us talk today about The Foundation. A cozy, quirky hipster restaurant on Main Street in Vancouver. For the life of me I can't find a link to their website. Which is such a shame because their menu is all vegan + vegetarian and all delicious, and I'd love to share it with you. 

I've been on the veg wagon for 24 years and I still get excited when I see a menu that I can order almost anything from. My favourite dish at the Foundation is Molten Tofu - a mixture of black beans, tofu, broccoli & spinach, and amazing peanut sauce. I first visited this restaurant a couple of decades ago,  (ffs I'm old!) and this dish, or variations of it, have been a staple for me at home ever since. What can I say? Peanut Sauce, black beans, broccoli and tofu are just meant to be together. 

I snapped up a photo of my co-worker's lunch, but I forget what it's called. It's a collision of mango, black beans and quinoa, and it's super scrumptious. She orders it every time we go there.  

Cheers to The Foundation! And please build a website. That is all.

Vegan MoFo day 1

 I met up with a couple of my good friends for lunch, and we went to a little place at the beach called Pajos. They have mostly non-veg stuff on the menu, but I love them for serving veggie burgers and veggie dogs that don't taste like cardboard. And they make a killer lemonade.

I'm happy to support local small businesses who make an effort to provide delicious veg options. Cheers to Pajos!
