Cosmic Treats was another restaurant we visited during Veggielicious last month. It’s a cute little diner in Kensington Market. I was especially excited to try this place when I saw things like Dorito-encrusted tofu and deep-fried vegan candy bars on the menu… Uh, YES.
I dragged my mum and by boyfriend along with me for this one and I think we all agreed – this place is pretty cool.
For $22 there was a 3-course dinner deal on:
Your choice of beverage – Glass of house red or white wine, pint of beer or Kombucha.Your choice of Entrée – Chick’un Caesar salad with homemade creamy dressing, croutons and fakin’ bits OR Frito pie – corn chips served with homemade chilli, pickled jalapenos and red onions, green onions, cilantro and Daiya jalapeno Havarti cheese (gf).Your choice of dessert – Deep-Fried Go-Max! candy bar of your choice drizzled with homemade hot fudge sauce OR Far from Pedestrian Sundae – homemade cashew ice cream with your choice of topping, sauce, whipped cream and a cherry on top (gf option available).
Frito pie – basically a bowl of chili and Fritos that’s served in a Frito bag. Pretty good and definitely an interesting presentation. Way too much cilantro for my taste but if I was ordering this for myself I would have just ordered it without.
We tried peanut butter and jelly ice cream, coffee ice cream and salted caramel bourbon sauce.
It was really good! The ice cream was very creamy and realistic-tasting. I’ve always loved vegan ice cream, even long before going vegan because I can eat a bunch and it doesn’t give me a stomach ache!
We had a great time at Cosmic Treats and enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood before and after our dinner. Service was great, the waitress was really friendly and the place was really cool.
I would definitely go back and bring someone who has never been here before to try the Dorito tofu.
Check it out next time you’re in Kensington Market/Chinatown or have a craving for some sweet vegan desserts.
