*The Gasomoter has reopened with different owners and a different menu. It is no longer has stand out vegan food.
I'm sure that many of you need no introduction to The Gasometer Hotel, a friendly pub in Collingwood with an extensive vegan / vegan optional (VGO) menu.
For those of you that know the Gasometer, but haven't eaten there in a little while, you'll be happy to hear that a new addition to the menu, 'Gas Vegan Nachos' ($20), are incredible. The Gasometer have had vegan nachos on their menu in the past and we haven't cared for them - but this version is a winner. The nacho chips are homemade and reminiscent of delicious crispy roti bread in chip form. The topping is a seitan and mixed bean chilli with vegan feta (incredible), sour cream, guacamole and salsa. These nachos are really worth trying.
Other favourites on the menu are the Buffalo Tofu Strips ($12 GFO) which are deliciously smokey and juicy and come with vegan ranch dipping sauce. The Gasometer is well known for their near-perfect hot chips, which makes the Poutine ($12 VGO) another popular choice; and let's face it - who doesn't love chips covered in cheesy sauce and rich brown gravy!? The Spanish Mushrooms ($12 GFO VGO) are also highly recommended - they come in a smoked paprika and garlic cream sauce, finished with sweet Spanish sherry.
There are plenty of other vegan mains (and desserts!) to choose from including Vegan Chicken & Waffles ($20), Vegan BBQ Ribs ($18), Arepas with Red Chilli Seitan & Salsa ($20) and the Southern Fried Chicken Burger ($18) to name a few. Basically, vegans are extremely well catered for and you should get yourself down there!
