By now you are used to reading our reviews of decadent cuisine and alcohol served throughout Montreal. But this week we decided it was time to go healthy, and what is more healthy than the nutritious plant-based powerfoods served at Copper Branch. Established in 2014, Copper Branch is a Montreal based brand with a plan to offer the best tasting vegan cuisine around. With new locations popping up all the time, they are well on their way to being a staple in Montreal neighbourhoods and in Montrealer‘s diets.
As we head into winter, when the comfort food comes calling, we often find it difficult to stick to our diets. Now that Copper Branch is on the scene, we no longer have any excuse. Great tasting, chef-inspired, and conveniently-served plant-based meals is the new way to go. The name itself comes for the inspiration of the best type of cookware, copper, and branch comes from nature. Therefore the best cooking with nature.
Copper Branch wants to bring their best to local communities by using primarily locally sourced products, and with plans to support local athletes and nutritional programs for schools. You can contact them about current and future projects at copperbranch.ca.
We were invited to one of the downtown locations at 600 De Maisonnueve, situated on the street level, the locale was brightly lit and appealing. The staff was extremely attentive and have quick recommendation for every taste and appetite.
As we are true foodies and are willing to try it all, we let the expert staff choose our meals for us. The Shiitaki burger was served nice and hot and wonderfully complemented by the organic teriyaki sauce and sriracha coleslaw. Perfect for a nice winter’s day or to grab a quick burger on the go. Next came the Aztec Power Bowl served with organic brown rice. The bowl was a beautiful mix of Sweet potato, corn & mango salsa, black beans, pumpkin seeds, guacamole, vegan sour cream, chickpeas, broccoli, beets, turnip, lettuce, and finally sprouted mung beans.
We supplemented our meals with a Copper Branch Fuel, a divine organic cold-pressed juice, made with carrot, celery, lettuce, lemon and ginger. A little on the spicy side it was a pleasant addition to our meal. We also sampled the Blue Sky soda, a natural soda made with sugar cane. Great when you crave something sweet. We left the restaurant feeling energized and satisfied.
The Copper Branch slogan is: You Are More Vegan Than You Think! But we think they should also include their mantra of Copper Branch. The Revolution Starts Here. We think they are going to revolutionize the fast food industry. Watch out Montreal, here they come.
