We Finally Tried Porter House

IMG_20150226_212002Porter House opened in December at 1321 Dundas Street West, former home to Brockton General, and we finally got in last night!

Yes, we have tried unsuccessfully a couple of other times to find a seat at this new vegan pub on Dundas a few blocks west of Ossington, mostly on weekends. Porter House does not take reservations, and the food is good and plentiful, so be prepared for a little waiting time during busy periods.

One of the main reasons that Porter House should be popular is its description: a vegan pub with craft beer. That’s the first of its kind in our part of town, if not the whole downtown, and they deliver on both counts and then some: tasty, filling vegan meals and a good list of uncommon craft brews from Oast House, Bellwoods, Great Lakes and many more.

We got 2 snacks – the root vegetable salad and the curry fries – and one plate – the lentil and ale pie – to share. The portions are generous: we had leftovers. If you’re not vegan, it shouldn’t make a difference; we omnivores thoroughly enjoyed every bite.

  1. I like your blog but please stop taking food shots with the flash on! They always look horribly unappetizing!

  2. Many restaurants have very dim lighting these days so we don’t have much choice. If you have any photos to share we’d love to see them!
