Vegetarian or not, you don’t want to miss a meal at Calactus [125 Church St, Moncton, NB E1C 4Z8, Canada] when in New Brunswick.
Local and organic ingredients are prioritized in the tantalizing menu featuring bites from around the world, pakoras, nachos, falafel – oh my! Our night seemed to focus around Mexico, trying something new and an old favorite. The Oaxaca Deep Dish was comforting, deeply satisfying, and absolutely delicious.
The flavorful spicy tomato sauce blanketed rice, black beans, and veggies – the cheese on top was gooey with a perfect crisp. Light garlic bread and a little salad made this meal perfectly well rounded. Enchiladas came out with a cheerful presentation.
Wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla were black beans, cheese, and a veggie Bolognese sauce – some of the best I’ve ever had! The portion is so huge, good luck finishing the rice, chips, guac, and salsa! If you have room for dessert, its homemade and vegan. How easy would it be to go vegetarian if this café was around the corner?!
