Slap on some plant-based SPF and root yourself on the white-picketed patio at Queen West’s latest vegan joint. (In case you hadn’t heard, Vegandale is spreading eastward.) Unlike most of its peers, Hello 123 doesn’t push junky meat substitutes as a questionable selling point, though obviously veggie burgers (mounded with kimchi!) are available. Fresh and flavourful dishes like chiliand cumin-spiced sweet potato noodles and stuff-your-own lettuce wraps are made for outdoor dining and aggressive geotagging. If you’re thirsty post-berry-speckled smoothie bowl, work on your freckles over a few pints of Blood Brothers Shumei or a round of tequila-spiked kombucha cocktails.
