New Restaurants in Vancouver 2017

Umaluma

235 East Pender Ave | $$ | Gelateria

@umalumagelato | Visit website

The best dairy-free ice cream you've ever tried. Made with a base of cashew, hemp and coconut, these creative concoctions aren't overpowered by coconut flavour. Umaluma offers about twenty explosive flavours (drunken cherry is my favourite), as well as hot elixirs in the winter.

Vegan Supply Co.

250 E Pender St | $$ | Vegan Grocery Store

@vegansupply | Visit website

For vegans, this grocery store is a dream! Vegan Supply Co. stocks a great variety of plant-based products, including nut cheeses (Miyoko's, Kite Hill, Vtopian, Pulse etc.), meatless meats, dairy-free milks, desserts, frozen products and so much more. They also have an e-store where you can order online and either pick-up at one of their restaurants (Meet on Main & Meet in Gastown) or have your items delivered to your front door.

The Juice Truck (Yaletown)

1022 Mainland St | $$ | Plant-based Cafe

@juicetruck | Visit website

Canada's cold-pressed juice pioneers, Zach Berman and Ryan Slater, have opened their second brick and mortar location in Yaletown. Get here for the best plant-based salads, smoothies, juices and desserts in the 'hood. The Burrito Bowl, The Green Smoothie and The Peanut Butter Fudge are my favourites - and stay tuned for their dairy-free soft-serve launching very soon!
