For those seeking a more environmentally conscious dining experience, 'Rice Bar' in Toronto's Kensington Market is a rescued food restaurant that will satisfy your soul.
Rice bar takes food that is about to expire and would otherwise be thrown away, and turns it into delicious grain bowls and salads. This new venture was founded by Brock Shepherd of Kensington Brewing Company as part of his 'Trashed & Wasted' project. The new eatery will offer a rotating lineup of stews, soups, salads and grain bowls based on availability of product. For example, the 'Wabi Sabi salad' is made up of whatever salvaged vegetables are available that day.
While most of the menu is vegetarian-based, ethically raised meats will be available upon request. This rescued food restaurant will also serve 'Electric Lemonade,' a drink made up of Butterfly Pea Flower Cold Brew and organic lemonade.
