World Vegan Month - Heirs Pears

The name of this place is based on the adage 'plant pears for your heirs'. To be honest, I don't know this saying but it make sense that many things you can do will benefit not only yourself but future generations. One of those things is obviously to eat in a sustainable manner. That is the idea at Heirs Pears although it does not serve strictly vegetarian dishes but offers carnivorous options.
Offering these choices to folks right downtown, Heirs Pears is located just off Granville on Nelson, in an airy high  ceilinged space with seating choices that include window front and outside. Marie has been patient with me, being less enthusiastic about the whole vegan thing, so I was happy that she could eat a piece of fish in good conscience, while I stuck to my vegan experiment guns! 
You pick your main, you pick any side or sides at the counter, then it is delivered to you when ready (there are also several sandwich choices, pastries and so on). Marie had a tasty Cod with Harissa and a Pickled Watermelon Salad on rice noodles with cashews and crispy garlic. The pickled watermelon was refreshing and interesting while a basil chili lime dressing brought it all together. Very nice!
I had their Vegan Sandwich. Peri-Peri "Chicken" salad which was yet another brush with the meaty jackfruit. Prepared with apple, celery, walnuts, mango chutney and vegan mayo, it was served on a very good ciabatta bread. A little messy and very tasty, I really didn't get peri-peri too much and I wouldn't have minded a little more heat. Still, not a bad choice. I came across this as Vanfoodster's Sandwich Challenge is taking place this month and two of the three choices are vegan and the third is vegetarian! Coincidence (as this is World Vegan Month)? I don't think so!
Prices are very good here! Marie and Iunched for just a little over $20. And there are other attractive choices including house cured duck pastrami and humbolt squid. A nice concept! Service was friendly and fairly quick. We recommend Heirs Pears!
