A few days ago I was in Toronto and went to a new vegan comfort food restaurant that had just opened, called Doomie’s near Queen and Dufferin. I’d been waiting since before they opened to go because I heard their LA location was really popular. We had to wait 30 minutes to get a table when we got there around 12:30 (they opened a 12:00), which wasn’t bad considering many places in San Francisco require a 2-hour wait.
When you go downstairs to the bathroom, the walls are covered in comics from Vegan Sidekick.
Ok, onto the food!
My boyfriend and I started off with Jalapeno poppers, which apparently JUST came on the menu and we were the first people to order it! Whaaaaa! They were delicious.
For my main, I ordered “chicken” and waffles, which was super decadent and came with a side of sticky fries (which are sweet and I think sticky because of maple syrup) and topped with vegan butter.I’m not sure how I felt about french fries being sweet but the rest of it was really good, although I could only eat half of it.
My boyfriend ordered the “chicken” sandwich. I had a bite of it and it was delicious. He was full for the rest of the day from just the burger and actually wasn’t hungry enough to eat dinner like 7 hours later.
I had to order dessert even though I was full, because who knew when I would have the opportunity to be back there again? We got the pumpkin Doomie bits, which are kind of like Tim Bits. If you’ve never been to Tim Hortons, Tim Bits are basically donut holes. They came topped with vanilla ice cream and it was all very yummy. My mouth is watering as I type this.
If you are in Toronto, I highly recommend checking it out. If you like vegan comfort food, I ALSO recommend Hogtown Vegan, which is near Bloor and Ossington and also very delicious!
