We have some Ossington food news to share as a few local restaurants are making or have made some changes.

Fat Choi Brings Plant Based Food to Ossington

Soos Restaurant begins two nights of vegetarian-only service every Monday and Tuesday beginning June 4th. The project is called Fat Choi and centers on “plant based prosperity.” Soos is a popular Malaysian restaurant operating for nearly 4 years at 94 Ossington Avenue. Since Soos is usually closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, the team is using those off nights to launch this new concept. A few of the Soos team members enjoy the plant based lifestyle and want to recreate comforting Asian classics with a twist. The menu will be designed by Soos’ own chef, Tricia Soo. You’ll be able to enjoy diverse Asian flavours, all plant-based, at Fat Choi. They are even going to include the “Feed Me” menu option as offered at Soos.

Omaw Expanding

Earlier this year, the team behind Omaw and other food ventures in Toronto, The Food Dudes, re-launched Omaw at 88 Ossington. More changes are coming! In addition to the new reservation only private dining room, Omaw is expanding with a venue/nightclub called Backspace. Expect bottle service at Backspace to begin in June.

Talking of back spaces, Roywoods Ossington recently extended with another bar at their location at 198 Ossington. They’ve converted their back room into this new space, calling it “Racy Tales.” So, after having your fill of Caribbean favorites in their relatively new restaurant up front, head to “Racy Tales” for some beverages and dancing.
