Look, another vegetarian place! Good Stock Restaurant & Catering focuses on being a quick service, healthy plant based restaurant. This sounded like the perfect place to take Jboi and L, my favourite vegan couple.
Hours. Pretty solid that they’re open everyday.
They also have the menu on display outside.
We came on a Sunday for a late lunch (1:00pm). The inside has a very clean, crisp industrial look to it with tons of seating available.
They have a lot going on. There’s a different daily special for everyday of the week.
Some house made punch and n-ice cap iced coffee.
Group takeout meals. Actually, make that take-away camping packages! Cool idea.
They’ve even got gelato from Da Vinci (from St. Albert).
You can get it by the pint ($6.25).
Or if you’d rather enjoy here, get it by the scoop ($4.35).
These were on display around the corner from the main counter. Some desserts and quick take out meals.
The main menu focuses on a few things: bagels, soup, probiotic cashew cheeze wheel, main courses, snacks, desserts and beverages.
Roasted tomato pepper kale ($5.50)
We added bottom rice ($1.50) to make it a bit more substantial. Can I add that $1.50 for a scoop of rice is ridiculous? That being said, the soup was very hearty and had good flavour.
Mac & cheeze with shredded rainbow salad ($10.50)
Macaroni noodles mixed with a creamy cashew cheeze carrot sauce and topped with a herb infused nutritional yeast mixture. The salad had beets, red cabbage, carrots, kale, chick peas and a maple dijon dressing. The mac was lacking that creamy, oozy satisfaction. I’ve yet to be impressed with any vegetarian style mac & cheese.
The rainbow salad was probably the best thing we ordered. Healthy with a great balance of flavours and texture, I’d get this on it’s own.
Quesadilla with potato salad ($12.00)
Tomato tortilla, house-made queso sauce, walnut taco meat, avocado and beans. The sauce had good flavour and a wee bit of heat to it. Would have liked to have had the quesadilla crunchier.
Creamy potato salad was made with a cashew based dressing, green onion and smoked paprika. Pretty boring; seemed like just filler to me.
It’s great to see more vegetarian places like GS opening up. Edmonton needs more variety and diversity in it’s food options.
