The latest culinary addition to the ever-expanding Yorkdale Mall is plant-based purveyor by Chloe. Following successful locations in New York, Boston, Los Angeles and London, U.K., this marks the first Canadian instalment of the American health food chain.

While the name might be international, Toronto's by Chloe is keeping things close to home, with a focus on local ingredients and classic Canadian staples. Enjoy poutine and a maple bacon "cheeze" burger alongside cold weather favourites like mac n' cheese and this hearty split pea soup.
