The first 250 customers get a free guac burger, too.
The day has arrived and vegan lovers can rejoice! L.A.-based chain by CHLOE. is finally opening the doors to its first-ever Canadian location on Thursday, October 17 and the restaurant has a little surprise up its sleeve. The plant-based, fast-casual restaurant is unveiling itssite at Yorkdale Shopping Centre and the first 250 guests get a free guac burger!
Torontonians, particularly those fond of plant-based foods, have been anticipating the opening since it wasa couple of months ago. Now, it's finally here.
There's something special in store for by CHLOE's first Canadian customers, too. The Yorkdale location will also have an exclusive "Toronto by CHLOE." menu inspired by classic Canadian dishes and local ingredients.
According to a release made available to Narcity, that menu specific to the Toronto location includes a "Maple Bacon Cheeze Burger" as well as poutine and split pea soup.
American bestsellers including the quinoa taco salad, pesto meatball, and "The Guac Burger" will also be on the menu.
Talking of "The Guac Burger", the first 250 customers through the door will receive the menu favourite free of charge.
The Yorkdale location will actually be a replica of its flagship location in New York's West Village. You'll want to be Instagram-ready when you go, as you'll find some unique Toronto-inspired neon signs, as well as swinging chairs, colourful banquettes, and super cute wallpapers in the bathroom.
Its sample menu also offers the chain's classic vegan burger, mac 'n' cheese, and a kale caesar salad, which comes complete with shiitake bacon, avocado, almond parm, maple-wheat croutons, and caesar dressing.
Are you a weekend bruncher? Well, there's also The Sunrise available on Saturdays and Sundays. That's scrambled tofu, spicy seitan chorizo, black bean salsa, avocado, crema, and a whole wheat tortilla. All that comes with AB+B Toast — a slice of 7-grain toast topped with almond butter, banana, and pure maple.
This location will offer a variety of dessert choices for you to "grab and go" too, including freshly baked sweets and dairy-free ice creams and sorbets. Their Sweets by CHLOE. options include gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, Chlostess cupcakes, and banana walnut bread.
The first Canadian location is by CHLOE.'s 16th in total since it opened its doors in New York back in July 2015. But it won't be the last north of the border, as the chain says it's set to open a second restaurant in downtown Toronto in fall next year.
Toronto has a new vegan option, and this is the type of "fast food" that you won't feel guilty indulging in!
