Vegetarian haggis in Toronto?

I just realized, late, that it's Burns Night tomorrow. Does anyone know a good place to buy vegetarian haggis in Toronto, preferably downtown? I don't have a car, so the Scottish specialty shops in Scarborough are probably out, though we'll see how dedicated I'm feeling.

I know this has been discussed before, and I gather Loblaws carried haggis in the east end a few years ago, but I've love to hear from anyone who has figured out where to buy it recently.

Also, the idea of canned haggis kind of grosses me out, though I know it shouldn't be any different in principle from the vacuum-packed stuff I ate in Edinburgh... Really, I'd love to find a health food store or something selling Macsweens...

  1. Maybe that tofu place in the basement of the SLM (south end of the south building). They do stuffed tofu turkeys.

    1. Call Whole Foods or the Big Carrot, maybe they stocked some for Burns Night.

      1. I know you said canned haggis grosses you out (probably for good reason), but just in case you can't find anything else, I saw some cans (a couple of weeks ago) of vegetarian haggis at the Nutty Chocolatier in the Beaches.
