You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy Commensal’s variety of fresh salads, hot soups and tasty stir-frys. More than 75 percent of this restaurant’s clientele is non vegetarian. Made with fresh, all-natural ingredients, you can sample an assortment of cold and hot dishes in their laidback dining room or grab it to go. The cost of your meal is measured by weight. Even more reasons to chow down: Commensal’s nutritious buffet comes highly recommended by Tourism Toronto, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and a number of vegetarian associations.
Some Like it Hot…
On the hot buffet side are a number of delicately prepared soups packed with fresh vegetables, herbs and spices. For a rich source of fibre, try the cream of broccoli soup. Looking for a vitamin and protein? Their butternut squash soup shouldn’t be missed while their fat-free lentil soup is loaded with carrots, onion and thyme. Ginger tofu, lasagne and eggplant in ginger sauce are fresh, organic and gently spiced. For a unique taste, try the Portuguese bean stew that is loaded with black eyed beans, fried tofu and plum tomatoes bask in cinnamon and bay leaves.
Others Like it Cold
Commensal’s cold buffet items offer a variety of salads and spreads such as hummus, tabouli and veggie paté. Their Arame seaweed salad is fat-free, delicious and full of antioxidant rich seaweed. Another sure bet is their chickpea salad flavoured with mint, basil and an array of spices. See what all the fuss is about.
