Vegan Feast at Ceylonta Restaurant

Since discovering Ceylonta South Indian restaurant a few months ago, it’s become a regular haunt for Neil and me. 

Thank the wonderful food. But even more so, thank the lovely hostess Tamara. She always helps us select vegan-friendly items from the extensive menu.

On the day we took these photos, we had three of our staple dishes: Roti with Coconut Sambal, Kothu Roti, and Vegetarian (vegan) Thali.

Neil ate the devilled potatoes

We skipped the Dosa that day. Largely because it’s the size and shape of a baseball bat and it wouldn’t fit on our two-person table.

We also skipped the Devilled Potatoes. Because they cause your head to catch on fire and we’d left our motorcycles at home. If I have to tell you that’s a Ghost Rider reference, you need to get out more. Or one of us does.

Anyway, here are some pics of the feast.

Roti with Coconut Sambal

I highly recommend everyone check the place out. The Roti alone is worth the trip. In fact, if you got nothing but several orders of Roti and Coconut Sambal, I would applaud your wisdom and commitment to getting fat.

And I encourage everyone to ask for Tamara’s help picking your vegan dishes. She’s been there every time we’ve gone and is loveliness and helpfulness personified. And I honestly don’t know if the dishes were already vegan or if she had the chef veganize them for us – so better to be safe than sorry! 

Vegetarian Thali. Not sure if it's naturally vegan or veganized for us.

 

Kothu Roti. Key word being "roti". What mad genius thought of mixing roti in with the dish?

    A question: which branch of Ceylonta did you go to? There’s one on Carling, not far from Bayshore and another on Somerset, near Bank Street.

    Hi Marcia: It was the Somerset one. Sorry – I forgot there is more than one!
