I got the chance to try out Kale this weekend. Located just north of Yonge and Eglinton, the simple restaurant offers wholesome vegetarian food in a pleasant space.
The food is served buffet style with two sections for hot and cold foods. I tried a squash-filled perogie, baked tofu, roasted potato and eggplant curry. From the salad foods I tried roasted organic beets, soba noodle salad, steamed kale and broccoli and marinated, roasted asparagus. You pay by weight for the food. The girl who worked there said most people average around $12 for a plate.
One of my food reviewing criteria lies in the need for the restaurant to offer something I cannot do at home. In the case of Kale, offers sheer variety. The selections of dishes are simple. I could roast beets or put together a tofu salad at home, but I could not have the variety of delicious, nutritious dishes that they do.
My companion and I each had a fresh juice ($6.50 for a small). Mine was beet, carrot & ginger, one of my favourite combos.
I loved Kale and I can't wait to go back. It's a simple, healthy option for clean eating. They have a system that works. If you are vegetarian or prefer to eat healthy food, I suggest you try it!
