azerea_02 I've yet to try Daiya, but I recently found ONE grocery where they have it, in Embrun, of all places, tiny little town in the country :P I'm looking forward to trying it on homemade pizza though

LadyFaile we even felt the earthquake in North Bay, though i didn't. a bunch of people told me they felt it i was at work in the mall, i guess it's a pretty sturdy building or something plus the floor in our store is concrete, i didn't feel a thing lol.

re: daiya, i know someone who is thinking of becoming a distrubutor for it here in North Bay so i may have a connection soon. woohoo

You can also get it at the Natural Food Pantry in Billings Bridge.



Did anyone feel the earthquake today?



No way! I go to the NFP in Billings 2-3 times a week and I've never seen it! I've seen the Follow Your Heart and the Tofutti slices. But never Daiya! Maybe they're always sold out. I wouldn't be surprised, since it's so good!



Yep, I felt the earthquake! It was pretty strong. The epicentre was only 50km north of Ottawa! They made us evacuate our office building after.

Heart1lly Hi!

I'm from Strathroy, Ontario, which is really close to London. Any Londoners around here? I noticed that we have two vegetarian restaurants in the city - Zen Vegetarian (which I have eaten at) and Veg Out (vegan). I try to get up to Toronto as much as possible, but since it's 3 hours away that isn't always doable. So, anyone from around there?
05-23-2010 09:25 PM
Farmrush That would be really cool. I literally only know one person in the entire city!

Abbey I'm not attending these universities, but I've lived in Ottawa for 3 years, so I can help you with any questions you have about the city. Vegetarian-friendly restaurants, health food stores, etc. There are lots of options, and I've tried most of them. Some are better than others

Farmrush Is anyone planning on attending University of Ottawa or Carleton University in September? I wouldn't mind making a few new friends as I won't know anyone in, or anything about, the city.

how far west, like mississauga? i lived there for 4 years and i had no trouble finding places to eat, the key is to avoid all the big chains and look for small ethnic places. there's tons of options in indian, thai, japanese, chinese etc. the trick is just finding places where the staff know enough english to be able to explain your needs and make substitutions etc. and any place where the owners are muslim or buddhist is usually more likely to understand what vegetarian and vegan mean.

the only totally vegan restuarant i ate at my whole 4 years there was in oakville, a little place called i think Ruby's, the place is so rundown, it was practically empty, the menu was small, the prices too high, but the owner herself serves you and is a super nice lady. because it was our first visit (i have a feeling she remembers all of her customers) we got free soup which was quite possibly the best carrot soup i have ever had, ever. i forget what i ordered, it wasn't bad but not spectacular, and carrot cake for dessert was disappointing, it was a very small piece and seemed a little stale, and was sorta bland. i think it's worth going there at least once just for the service and the soup though lol. if it's still there

Urban Herbivore in Kensington Market is probably my favourite vegan restaurant in the city. They have amazing sandwiches. http://www.fressenrestaurant.com/ (They're owned by Fressen, which is also amazing but a lot fancier.)
