I'm a dedicated omnivore, leaning to carnivore, and like things that require a knife. A friend leans veggie, and is keen on hearty veggie soups.
We're looking for a dinner spot both of us can enjoy, in the downtownish area (Queen to Bloorish, Bathurst to Broadviewish, but a block or two extra for greatness is okay).
Is there a place with a terrific veggie-based soup (inclusion of meat is okay, light on onions and garlic), but also good non-soup food? Extra wrench: Options with no cilantro.
