A Sneak Peek of meowfest 2019's Food Vendors
Toronto might be described by some as "the New York of Canada," but thanks to its many culinary creatives and sheer cultural diversity, it's rapidly building its own name as one of the North America's top culinary destinations. No matter what type of cuisine you're in the mood for, you'll be able to satisfy your craving, often without straying too far.
You can get a taste of Toronto's rich culinary scene at meowfest, which will host some of the city's most raved-about food vendors. Make sure to fill up on something delicious before heading to the Drinking Fountain for a Meowmosa...or three.
Here's a glimpse of what you can expect to eat at this year's festival:
Animal Liberation Kitchen
Family-run ALK is driven by two passions: a love for healthy, tasty food, and a love for animals. Through dishes inspired by traditional kitchens around the world, they prove that you don’t have to sacrifice taste to eat plant-based.
What we can’t wait to try: Smoky truffle shitake mac and cheese (noodles with cashew-based sauce, sizzled truffle oil, shitake mushrooms, sesame seeds and herbs).
