new fav restaurant in the area! decided to check this place out after work the other day. i?ve ordered on uber eats once but i had covid so i couldn?t really taste! plus dining-in is a whole diff experience than take out. i loved the vibe of the place, very cute and modern. the service was extremely fast; our food arrived in under 10 min and even then, it was plated and prepared with care. we ordered a cauliflower bowl, and cauliflower bites (wish it was spicier), mac and cheese with a side of fries. i got a kombucha to drink and my partner tried the lemonade. i really enjoyed all dishes and my non vegan partner loved the mac and cheese as well as the lemonade. over all, had a good experience and will definitely be back to try other things.
Sustainable, fresh, locally-sourced and vegan ? love everything about mission statement of Parka. The inside is a bit on the smaller side but very aesthetic and clean (even the washrooms)! The service was extremely friendly and we got our food fairly quickly! They were kind enough to cut our burger into thirds, so we were able to share everything with ease. Food: 4.5/5 (from favourite to least favourite) - The smoky portobello burger was recommended to us and did not disappoint! Mushroom was so juicy and flavourful, and it was clean to eat and very balanced with the guac, onion rings, arugula, and tomato. - Chipotle cauliflower bowl looked like a lot of sauce at first but it was perfect ? the sauce is not overpowering and had really good flavour. I do wish they gave a bit more guac! - Truffle mushroom mac and cheese smelled really good and the mushroom with cashew cream and pasta was heavenly! However, the bites without the mushroom were a bit on the bland side and could have more truffle flavour. - Broccoli soup was warm, flavourful, and thick! A little heavy handed with the salt but otherwise a decent choice for a side. We will be coming back!
Went here for lunch with a non-vegan friend and we both thought it was delicious! I got the cauliflower wrap and s?mores cookie and she got Mac and Cheese and a juice. We liked everything. The service was pleasant and our food was ready pretty quickly!
Ordered takeout and it really wasn?t good. There are much better vegan options in the area. It was a little cheaper but still not worth it. The truffle Mac and cheese was really lacking in flavor and texture, but especially flavor. It was bland and not that gooey texture you expect from (vegan) cheese sauces. I?ve had much much better vegan Mac and cheeses. The main flavor was pepper, no umami. The mushrooms were good but mainly sour in flavor (vinegar). Barely any truffle flavor. It was even lacking salt. Would not order again. The Buffalo cauliflower was even worse. It was completely soggy, not even slightly crunchy. It really could have benefitted from some breading - it seems they only lightly battered it, so when covered with the sauce the coating completely dissolved. It was also much too soft on the inside. Tasted like overcooked steamed soggy cauliflower tossed in sauce, not worth the calories at all. The Buffalo cauliflower at Fresh in comparison is excellent and holds up well in takeout - compared to that this is almost inedible. The chicken fried tofu burger was again disappointing. The tofu again was not crunchy at all nor breaded. It tasted like regular cooked tofu with no coating, not even as crispy as baked tofu - they didn?t even bother to coat it in cornstarch. If it was fried, you couldn?t tell so again not worth the calories of frying. It was also underwhelming - the whole wheat bun tasted awful and the rest of the toppings were lackluster. Barely 1 tsp smear of the guacamole. Overall, avoid their fried foods as they are not breaded or crunchy at all. And even non fried foods like the Mac are bland. If you?re looking for tasty vegan food try Fresh or Treetop burgers or Planta, all in the same takeout radius.
the order: _ truffle mac & cheese - smelled heavenly, however when i started to dig in i didn't enjoy it as much as i would have. noodles were al dente, sauce was lacking in flavor, sautéed organic mushrooms were very flavorful. for each spoon, i had to make sure i had some of the mushroom to get a 'kick' of flavor or else it would've tasted plain. overall yummy m&c but needs a kick! the overall: _ i have yet to explore (in detail) the world of vegan food so i decided to try out Parka Food. Sourced locally, reduce food waste, sustainable, focuses on natural ingredients, and breaks down the misconception of plant-based food. choosing Parka Foods means you're choosing to make a positive impact. _ beautiful, beautiful aesthetic and as soon as you walk in, you know exactly what they're all about. _ staff was extremely helpful, helped me choose the order _ excited to try the rest of the menu
During our stop in Toronto, we went here twice for lunch. Cute atmosphere. Delicious and creative planted based menu. Everything we had was great! Service was friendly & quick, we felt safe as vaccine proof was requested & a sign in form was filled out. Place was also very clean. Definitely recommend to all my follow vegans out there!
Excellent fast service and aesthetic space for vegan eats + comfort food. Chefs kiss to the excellent new menu items available now at Parka. I really enjoyed trying their new menu items, my favourite was the Jicama Burger and the Greek Arugula Salad. The service was fast and they kept the space very clean. I live the new aesthetic with the plants and the open concept kitchen. You can see all the fresh ingredients come into play. I recommend checking out Parka for tasty vegan eats.
I was really excited to try the truffle Mac and cheese. I read really good reviews about the fries so I got them as well. The mac and cheese was good enough to finish but there was no flavour and definitely no truffle flavour. I thought the cheese sauce had potential but it just lacked flavour to me. I?d give them a 3 star. The fries were so dry, I couldn?t finish them. I liked the seasoning so I really wanted to like them but they were just so dry and had zero crunch. Maybe I got a bad batch? I would maybe consider ordering again to try other items that I had my eyes on.
