My first vegan crisis happened at Tacos Victor. I was almost a month in my veganism and my team decided to go out and grab some Mexican food. Tacos. The menu was so heavily meat-based. Who knew? But I guess they thought of the vegetarians as well – one option was available. Yes, I can eat!
Of course, the smell was killer and my colleagues’ tacos were mouth-watering. But I was not missing out. My mushrooms tacos turned out to be incredible! Sure, it did not sound epic and without any self-hypnosis, I was enjoying my vegan tacos. I made sure the cheese was removed and thought I could replace it with some guacamole, but they don’t have that. I was worried. How can this taco taste any good without some fat? Actually, the tacos had some oily fries as fillers so I was saved in that aspect. All their tacos have fries in them. LOVE!
How can a taco be complete without any hot sauce? Tacos Victor offers 3 choices, from mild to very spicy. They live up to their label. So be gentle with your spoon. The taco costed about $5 each, and I was 80% full after consuming 2.
The place does not accommodate big groups because seats are limited. It is a place where you want a quick bite and go to your next scheduled activity.
I can’t wait to come back with Mr.Butter because I just know he will love it so much. Sad thing is I will have the order the same thing for myself.
I always had great culinary experience in Trois-Riviere including this time. Mr.Butter is very considerate and looked up for vegan friendly restaurant. I thought it would be an impossible task in non metropolitan city but I guess I am wrong!
Elephant is presented as a vegan friendly non-authentic Indian restaurant. The fact that they acknowledged the non-authenticity of their cuisine, I was able to open my heart and enjoy this experience without scrutinizing on trivial matters such as “authenticity”. I almost realize how snobbish or close-minded it is the whole “authenticity” factor. Food is food. As long it tastes delicious, who cares? Elephant, you made me wiser.
A special day requires a special dinner. Too many restaurants in Montreal fit in that category – we are so overwhelmed by choices. I want somewhere chic enough for a date night, but not plagued by the decor and only to be disappointed by the food.
I made a reservation at Bouillon Bilk.
