Vegan Mexican Brunch at Rosalinda Restaurant

Rosalinda Restaurant Rosaburger

Rosalinda Restaurant located at 133 Richmond St W in Toronto

January 19, 2020:  Back in January, we met up for brunch downtown at the vegan restaurant, Rosalinda Restaurant (133 Richmond St W).  We had compiled a list of vegan restaurants we want to visit and this one was the first to cross off the list!  Rosalinda Restaurant serves vegan planet-friendly Mexican food.  We were excited to try it out!

Tracy was the first to arrive at the York Street and Richmond Street restaurant (the closest TTC subway station is Osgoode Station).  When I walked into the restaurant, I told the hostess that my friend had already arrived and I was led to a table near the back of the restaurant.

Rosalinda Restaurant is one of those modern trendy-looking restaurants with an open-concept space with lots of greenery and hanging lights.

Although we were given the full menu to browse through, the server informed us that we were only able to order food items from the brunch menu since it was brunch time.  The full menu was given to us for purposes of ordering drinks only (and they really have so many  beverages to choose from — from cocktails to tequila to wine to beer to non-alcoholic drinks).  Too bad we couldn’t order from the full menu too since there were some appetizers we wanted to try from there.  (Brunch at Rosalinda Restaurant is on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)

From the brunch menu, we ordered three dishes to share.

The food took about 20 minutes to arrive, which was fine since we were busy chatting away anyway.  Our server was pleasant and polite.

The first to arrive was the duo Breakfast Tacos, consisting of a zucchini tofu scramble, black bean, cucumber pico de gallo, and nutritional yeast.  The two tacos looked so good against the steel grey plate.  I really enjoyed the tacos.  The zucchini tofu scramble was soft and light and the tortilla held everything up nicely.

Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast Tacos. $12
-zucchini tofu scramble, black bean, cucumber pico de gallo, nutritional yeast

Rosaburger

Rosaburger. $18
-black bean patty, pickles, iceberg lettuce, avocado salsa, chipotle mayo
-Libretto vegan mozzarella +$2

The Rosaburger was made using a black bean patty with pickles, iceberg lettuce, avocado salsa, and chipotle mayo.  For $2, we also added the Libretto vegan mozzarella.  The burger came with a side of fries and ketchup.

I appreciated that the kitchen cut the burger in two for us since the server knew that we were going to share the items.  The burger was pretty good.  I liked the crispy fries.

 

Jackfruit Tamal

Jackfruit Tamal. $14
-white bean, iceberg lettuce, radish, cashew crema, avocado

Lastly, the Jackfruit Tamal had white bean, iceberg lettuce, radish, cashew crema, and avocado.  This dish was a bit on the small side and was all right.  I didn’t notice much jackfruit in it at all.

All in all, it was a visually pleasing trendy place to hang out for brunch.  It was so bright and pretty inside.  The food was solid and tasty, but prices were on the higher side.  The three dishes we ordered were tasty, but because they weren’t very substantial I didn’t feel very full.
