What I Ordered
We arrived for brunch and ordered the Planta Burger, Chia Pudding, Banana Pancakes, and Kombucha Mojitos! The beautifully presented vegan burger was moist while the texture and taste closely resembled a beef burger. The chia pudding was outrageously good, creamy and not too sweet. As for the Banana Pancakes…can you say orgasmic? First of all, there’s not a single thing about these savory pancakes that could possibly be any better. Hence, these were some of the best pancakes we’ve ever tasted, vegan or not. Lastly, the Kombucha Mojitos were refreshing with an artful presentation, as was everything we ordered.
The vibe at Planta is modern, open and sleek with 2 separate dining areas. A gorgeous full-service liquor bar is the focal point in the main dining area with a quieter and dimly lit sister room along the east side of the restaurant. The entire front wall of Planta is windowed from floor to ceiling, with cozy upholstered bench seating at its base. The service is upscale casual with an ambiance that creates a feeling of specialness.
The taste meter at Planta reaches a new plateau and a must stop when in South Beach! Above all, this is a destination restaurant and a clear 5 on the yummy scale! Planta serves dinner daily and brunch on the weekends. They have another location in Toronto, lucky Canadians!
