If you’re a vegan and feel kind of limited when you go to a pub because the food on the menu does not cater to your vegan lifestyle, then check out the Bowhead, Montreal’s very first vegan pub, which opened its doors at its location on St. Laurent Boulevard near Pine last week.
Whether you are a vegan or not, the Bowhead offers the complete pub experience (with a comfortable, maritime-style décor that makes you believe you’re at a seaside location), but with a food and drink menu that’s completely plant-based.
Bowhead’s classic pub menu
And after sampling some of the Bowhead’s classic pub menu, it’s hard to believe that it’s actually plant-based. From their delicious beyond meat burgers and hot dogs (go for their chili dogs), to the deep fried chicken curry, to their “animal fries” (waffle fries topped with plant-based ground beef, caramelized onions and fondu cheese), to their “Tarte Fritos” (Fritos corn chips topped with chili, cheese, guacamole, coriander, jalapenos and lime and served in a split open Fritos bag), the Bowhead offers a variety of sinfully good, yet health-conscious, pub style food for whatever your dietary leanings are.
Top that with flat screen TVs that dot the entire premises and spaces that can cater to intimate gatherings, small groups or private parties, the Bowhead adds itself to the list of Montreal’s popular pubs to gather with friends, as well as keeping up with the growing trend of vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants in the city.
