New York’s favourite plant-based spot has landed in Toronto. The ultra-trendy by CHLOE made serious waves when it opened in NYC and now has locations in Boston, Rhode Island, LA, London and finally, Toronto. The restaurant is located in Yorkdale Mall and open 10 am-9 pm Sunday-Friday and 9:30 am-9 pm on Saturdays. We had heard a lot of buzz surrounding by CHLOE from social media and let us tell you, it definitely lives up to the hype.
by CHLOE is serving up all your favourite comfort foods with a plant-powered twist. Burgers, [air-fried] fries, shakes, mac and cheese, doughnuts, cookies, you name it -- they’ve got it. Plus, they somehow manage to pack every superfood into their fast-casual menu.
We had the pleasure of checking out by CHLOE after they had launched their new line of ‘Chicky’. Delicious spiced tempeh nuggets coated in gluten free chickpea crust.
There is no shortage of sauce options at by CHLOE. Try beet ketchup, buffalo sauce, a sweet mustard dip, and BBQ.
The poutine consists of super crispy air-baked fries, which maintain their texture even under all the delicious toppings. Drenched in umami-rich onion gravy and ‘cheeze’ curds made out of coconut.
The Guac Burger was fresh, crunchy and hearty. They top their sweet potato-quinoa-black bean patty with lots of fresh veggies and chips. As the name would suggest, they did not skimp on the guac.
The Spicy Thai salad is a crowd favourite. Shredded kale, crispy romaine, apricot-sriracha glazed ‘chicky’, sliced almonds and edamame tossed in a creamy peanut dressing with crispy wontons.
The Maple Bacon Cheeseburger should be an official Canadian staple. The tempeh-lentil-chia-walnut patty is topped with sweet maple shiitake ‘bacon’, vegan cheeze and caramelized onions. The perfect combination of salty and sweet.
For dessert, we got to try a selection of their vegan treats. The chocolate chip cookie is a must. The doughnut was pillowy and sweet with a hint of strawberry flavour and the cupcake was perfectly fluffy with the most airy icing piled high.
For anyone -- vegan or not, by CHLOE is a must-visit.
