“We took the popular dishes and gave them a modern makeover,” says Shane Johnson, executive chef at the Love Street waterfront restaurant hub. “A lot of food made from scratch can be made vegan with just a few minor adjustments or substitutions. For example, we use almond milk for the chickpea fries and tomato bisque, as well as hazelnuts to thicken. The selection of vegan products opens a lot of doors for chefs pushing the boundaries.” Johnson adds that the kitchen is dedicated to producing quality vegan dishes: “My goal is to make vegans feel catered to in an industry where sometimes their needs are left out.”
