Vegetarian "buffet" (pay by weight)?
So I woke up this morning craving a vegetarian pay by weight buffet style restaurant a la Green Door or the Table in Ottawa, and it occurred to me that I don't know of any such places in Toronto! Well, I have heard that there's le Commensal here, but taking a quick poke around on here, it doesn't appear to be highly rated. (The reviews all appeared to be several years old, however.)
Are there any other similar places? Is le Commensal worth checking out to satisfy my craving or should I skip out on it entirely? I don't need a stellar meal; I just want some decent-to-good food with some nice desserts, and preferably a good non-vegan (which I often find lacklustre) selection.
Not vouching for quality or taste here, but the flagship Noah's store at Bloor and Spadina (north side, near the current Fresh by Juice for Life) used to have vegetarian and vegan pay-by-weight food...and Whole Foods (in Hazelton Lanes downtown, plus Oakville) has tons of rather exhorbitantly priced pay-by-weight foods, both veg. and meaty...
I've been to le Commensal a few times. It's not bad, but if you have a craving based on something really good, it might be disappointing. Then again, there's only one way to find out, and the food is decent so I say give it a try. Let us know how it stacks up to your Ottawa favorites.
