When your favorite restaurant invites you to a special event to taste some of their new menu options, you bet your sweet kale I go!
It’s funny because about a year a ago Brad and I were on a day date in Toronto and we stopped at B.Good for lunch. That was our first time there and it quickly turned into our must stop spots whenever we are in the City! As much as I love trying different restaurants and foods, the one thing I am not willing to compromise on is healthy, fresh, whole foods. I don’t do processed foods, like ever, which is why whenever I find a place like B.Good I tend to be a repeat customer.
If you have ever been there you know that their entire menu is made using all local ingredients from Ontario Farmers. Whether you are getting a salad, one of their famous burgers or their delicious bowls everything you are eating is made without the use of artificial preservatives, antibiotics or growth hormones.
I’m a creature of habit, so the first time we went there I ordered their Vegan Burger (Did you know that 95% of their menu can be made Vegan and Gluten Free). I loved the burger so much that every time we go there I always ordered the same thing, and so did Brad, he always got the ‘Adopted Luke’ Beef Burger.
I got to try several of their salads, bowls and burgers at the menu tasting event and let me tell you moving forward I’m not sure how I’m ever going to decide what to order the next time we go there, maybe I should email them and suggest that they make food flights-you know like beer flights, a little bit of each thing on the menu.
Lets start off with the salad that I enjoyed the most! Watermelon Feta. Okay, I know you are thinking- whats the big deal a lot of places serve this, BUT do they serve it with Popcorn? No they don’t but B.Good does! Who knew that watermelon, feta cheese, crunchy toasted popcorn with arugula, spinach, white beans, mint and sun-dried tomatoes, drizzled with a simple red wine vinaigrette would taste so amazing!
I almost forgot to mention that my date for the night was one of my best friends Pina , ya’ll probably already know her as the amazing ChicMamma, and if you don’t, go check her out..like now! She’s hilarious and we always have an amazing time together!
We love a lot of the same things and yet we don’t, but we both agreed that the food was amazing! Her favorite salad of the night was the Southwest Chicken Salad and her favorite burger was the El Guapo Chicken Burger made with homemade jalapeño slaw, where my favorite burger was the Power Play Turkey Burger, served with fresh avocado!
The one thing we both loved was their homemade lemonades! They have 2 flavors, Beet-Ginger Lemonade and Rosemary Lemonade. If we had to choose one- we can’t, both were out of this world good!
It was a great night, in fact if the higher ups of B.Good are reading this and you need future taste testers- call me!
If you are ever in the City and looking for a healthy place to eat that serves great eats, with lots of vegan and gluten free options, B.Good is the place to stop, it serves straight up real healthy food and who doesn’t love that!
