Toronto vegans may finally have a burger joint to call their own with Planta Burger.
Planta Burger, the spin off to Yorkville’s vegan-chic Planta, is launching in Toronto’s financial district after Labour Day. The new gourmet food and quick service destination is a collaboration between chef David Lee and Chase Hospitality Group culinary director Tyler Shedden.
The focus here is on affordable, high quality, responsibly sourced ingredients that leave a minimal environmental impact.
The menu will feature two nut free and gluten free patty options: the mushroom black bean, lentil and beet patty topped with avocado and garlic aioli for The California ($10) and a queso, mushroom bacon and pickle make up The Classic ($10). Also on offer: The Crab Cake ($10) patty made with heart of palm and celeriac, and topped with lettuce and tartar. The diner riff moves into more familiar territory with their sides: fries, onion rings, tots, buffalo cauliflower, classic milkshakes and a Rootbeer float.
Planta Burger arrives in Toronto on September 5. For more info, click here.
