I must post about THE MOST AMAZING dinning experience I've had in Toronto. It was at Ursa a few weeks back, I'm telling you this place is for everyone: vegan, veggies, raw foodies, carnivores, celiacs, locavores, teetotallers, you name it. And not the kind of place that just pulls the bread from your bruschetta and calls it gluten-free, oh you know who you are Dundas and Palmerston... Ursa is a real food experience, it's clear the kitchen thinks about the whole picture; presentation, taste, experience, love and nourishment. Their delicious root vegetable salad came with a side of sprouts still growing in soil to be trimmed at the table... the epitome of living food. The housemade silken tofu amazing! And, as a non-drinker I was able, for the first time, to sample housemade drinks. In this case they were delicious kombuchas and vinegar shrubs and the bartender (Robin Goodfellow) was SO into his art it made it all the more exciting. Really all the staff seemed eager to describe and discuss the food and their process. I could go on, but I'll keep it proper blog short, plus I don't have the words to do the place justice. Just check it out.
