1. The Acorn

The Acorn is a vegetable-forward restaurant and bar at the heart of Vancouver’s Main St. They are inspirational when it comes to their vegan options.

2.  MeeT

MeeT is the ultimate spot for vegan comfort food in Vancouver, with several locations around the city. This is the sort of food that your die-hard carnivore friends can hardly believe contains no animal products. Dishes to chow down on include a spicy buffalo burger or poutine topped with their savory cashew miso gravy, house feta, and mozzarella, finished with scallions.

3. Arbor

Arbor is the little sibling restaurant to Acorn, so you can rest assured that it’s just as incredible. It’s more casual than its big sis, with a casual and fun menu. Interestingly, you won’t find seitan, wheat-gluten or any other imitation meat or substitutes here. They push the boundaries with purely vegetables to create dishes you can’t easily make at home.
