No meat? Yes please: Vegan restaurants get more aggressive, and more popular

“NO SALADS!” screams the sign on the wall. “MIX DRINKS NOT MORALS” yells another sign behind the bar.

And with that, the tone is set for a meal at Doomie’s, a no-meat fast food joint in Parkdale that is as forceful about what’s on its menu as what’s not.

Doomie’s is part of a trend in Toronto that’s seen veganism take an abrasive turn, with so-called “extreme vegan” cooks pushing in-your-face ethics, making the case that not eating animals is a morally superior lifestyle.

And to even the chef’s surprise, the vegan-or-nothing attitude is not putting off restaurant goers. In fact, judging by the lineups, it’s attracting them.
