When you think of a butcher shop, “vegan” food is probably the last thing that comes to mind. Get ready to be blown away by Toronto’s first and only 100% vegan butcher shop! Introducing YamChops – a bit of butcher shop, restaurant, take-out, health food store, caterer, home delivery service, even juice bar and more! I had been meaning to visit for some time now. Upon entering, I was greeted by Tori, part owner of Yam Chops. She had me sample everything my heart desired even opening items that didn’t have a sample available. So what did I try? Everything from their Free-Range “Chick”-pea Cashew Hummus, Organic GMO-Free Tofu, Kale Caesar (it was SO good!), Tuna-less “Tuna”, Dill Cream Cheese, Almond Chocolate Pudding, tzakiki (blown away!!) and a few of their organic cold-pressed juices. I was stuffed just from all the sampling! It’s seriously a vegans paradise one-stop shop. Gluten intolerant? No worries, they’ve got loads of options that are GF! Next time I visit, I’ll definitely grab some of the patties to throw on the BBQ! If you haven’t been already, the question is… why not?!?! GO!!
