3. Hidden Gems Toronto: Rosalinda Restaurant

This place is a vegan Mexican restaurant where your foodie dreams come true. The owners of Rosalinda already manage two other successful and yummy restaurants in Toronto. They had their plant oriented dining concept in their minds for a long time already. This concept is also reflected in the interior as the space is decked out with lots of plants and the roof looks like in a greenhouse. How about a crispy tofu and rice bowl with salsa macha, black beans, avocado, peanuts and chipotle vinaigrette
