Pizza, acai bowls, gelato and more neighbourhood eats to feel good about.

Say what you will about gentrification, but the vegan crowd finally has a home in Chinatown, thanks to a wave of trendy plant-based rooms that have set up shop within a few square blocks of each other. Hit  Virtuous Pie (583 Main Street) for the Stranger Wings pizza, complete with cashew-based “cheese” and spicy buffalo cauliflower, or  Kokomo (611 Gore Avenue) for a superfood-packed acai bowl, then savour a scoop of heavenly non-dairy gelato—we love Drunken Cherry—from  Umaluma (235 E Pender Street) before stocking the pantry at  Vegan Supply Shop (250 E Pender Street).
