I've found that almost all places in Edmonton are extremely accomodating and often have very good offerings. Vegan is a bit harder, but vegetarian? No excuse here at all.Originally Posted by Sketchy
Calgary: Bhudda Veggie, best in the province
Edmonton: Padamandi, full on VEGAN
Edmonton: Oriental Veggie House, great meat analogs
Good veggie offerings can be found at:
Edmonton: Tropica on Calgary Trail
Edmonton: Jaipur Palace on 34th street
Edmonton: Haweli, Downtown near the Boardwalk Market
Veggie Groceries and cool soy products can be found at (I might have this wrong) East China Market, on 101st avenue and ~65th street. I can check this for sure if anyone wants.
I am trying to find more, but pickins are slim in Cattle Country (yee-haw!)
If you know where to go, tell us. If I see enough I'll put up list on the web of friendly places.
I think it's the same as any other place. Also, Alberta has a large influx of population from other provinces, too.Originally Posted by rvijay
I am from Montreal. Just have some curious questions here. Surprised to hear about Vegetarians/Vegans in a province where Cattle Industry is very strong. Are there a lot of Vegans/Vegetarians in Alberta and sorrounding Provinces ? Why do people in these Provinces giveup meat ? Do they get enough support for going meatless ?
Hi Veggies! I have a very big problem digesting red meat and I am allergic to chicken so I mostly eat fish and tofu. (Quinoa ROCKS!!!) I agree that Buddha's is amazing! They're Ginger "beef" is better than any restaurant out there. Even meat-heads don't know it's not meat. I am actually in the screenprinting/promotional goods industry and would be happy to put together a t-shirt/temporary tattoo/bumper sticker order for anyone. Email me at [email protected] if you're interested.Originally Posted by dragonflie
I agree that Edmonton is a pretty veggie friendly city. I still feel like this sometimesliving in cattle country. I would love an I love Albertasticker or tee shirt. Some other good restaurants in Edmonton are: Cafe Mosaics, Highlevel Diner, the New Asian Village.
