Food with Roots from Vancouver’s Virtuous Pie
Located in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, the culinary crew at Virtuous Pie offers a fresh spin on what’s known as fast-casual dining.
Proving that there is a growing appetite for plant-based food, the millennial-owned restaurant has been packed since it opened in September with line-ups out the door.
Virtuous Pie serves a delicious range of plant-based pizza and ice cream. Available as a quick lunch in or boxed to go, handcrafted pizzas take only 6 minutes from the time you order.
Their mission at Virtuous Pie is to serve delicious food that’s also healthy, ethical, sustainable, and affordable. The goal is to give people a dining option that aligns with their principles, without forcing them to sacrifice the things they’ve come to expect in modern-day life. Things like value, speed and great taste.
The food at Virtuous Pie is unique and delicious.
Take the Kim-Jack pizza for example. The toppings include hoisin crema, cashew mozzarella, kimchi, gochujang braised jackfruit, roasted broccolini and scallions. And the ice creams are just as original. A recent collaboration with Vitruvi Essential Oils produced a flavorful lavender and meyer lemon ice cream, while the turmeric and black pepper fusion has been a crowd pleaser since opening day.
It’s also fair to say that Virtuous Pie has put on a spin on what’s known as fast-casual dining. Not only is the food creative and mouth-watering, the space is also design forward. The Vancouver location was designed by the award-winning firm, House of Bohn, and Portland designers Bright Design Lab will be creating an entirely new look and feel for the Portland, Oregon location opening in June of 2017, taking a “modern picnic” approach.
