The East Exchange is rapidly evolving as one of the city’s hottest dining districts. Helping that evolution are two new exciting eateries that recently opened in side-by-side heritage spaces:
• Corrientes Argentine Pizzeria brings us the flavour of Corrientes Ave, Buenos Aires, with authentic baked empanadas full of savoury fillings like smoked salmon, pickerel and feta cheese. 137 Bannatyne Ave, 204-219-5398.
• Boon Burger Café (pictured), Canada’s first all-vegan burger joint, serves up killer plant-based patties and poutine at its second spot inside a converted carriage tunnel. 141 Bannatyne Ave, 204-504-5394.
