Heirloom Vegetarian

Location: 1509 West 12th Avenue

I’ve known about Heirloom Vegetarian restaurant for awhile but never felt like going for vegetarian food. A really close friend works there and suggested we try some of her favourite dishes.

First off, the space is beautiful and the people who serve there are so friendly and helpful.


Lillian ordered the Kale salad which was recommended by Candice and I ordered the beyond meat burger. The kale salad was indeed very good and definitely met the hype. Lots of texture and packed with flavour. As for my burger, it was smaller for the price but it was still very enjoyable. Also, if you’re extra hungry, order the humus and veggies because this is one next level humus.



Lillian also wanted to come back for brunch one day and we did. We ordered their Lavender latte with soy milk and it was amazing! She ordered the greens omelette and I ordered the mushroom benny. Both were very good and I would recommend both in an instant. I loved the mushroom selection in my benny and paired with the runny yolk and hollandaise… it was perfect.

I forgot how good those potatoes were…

Rating 5/5 highly recommended for a date spot.

The Arbor

Location: 3941 Main Street, Vancouver

We’ve been on a roll lately exploring vegetarian restaurants in town. The Arbor was a spot that we came across while strolling on Main St. Depending how long the wait was, we were going to give it a shot. Thankfully, the line was short and we got in within 5 minutes.

The restaurant itself is very small, nicely decorated but very loud inside. I ordered the southern fried artichoke sandwich with fries and Lillian ordered the fungi pizza. The food took a while for it to come out so don’t come here if you’re starving already. As for the food, the sandwich was ok, the cheese inside overpowered everything inside the sandwich. My favourite out of the whole dish were the fries as they were how I like it (fish and chip style).


The pizza for me was meh, it really wasn’t anything special. I’d take Virtuous Pie over this pizza any day.


Perhaps it was our items that we ordered, I saw people order these Jackfruit Bao’s which looked delicious.

Overall, it was nice to try, but probably not a repeat for me.

Rating 3/5
