Faux Mozzarella, now at Trella! Another Ottawa restaurant joins the Outreach Program

In the time since this post was written, Trella restaurant has closed.

I’m pleased to announce that yet another Ottawa restaurant has joined the NCVA’s Restaurant Outreach Program.

Upscale but unpretentious, Little Italy’s Trella Bar and Grill is a most welcome addition, offering diverse lunch and dinner menus, plus breakfast on the weekends.

The following is a list of all the vegan or “veganizeable” items that Trella will be offering as of Friday, February 11th, 2011. They are identified by the NCVA logo on the “vegan menu” – just ask your host or hostess for it when you arrive!

Keep in mind that small additional costs may apply on some items. Alas, our favourite fauxs can be pricey…


Tomato and Basil Bruschetta (with vegan bread)

Grilled Veggie Stack (with Daiya cheese or tomato sauce)


Mixed greens with vegan balsamic vinaigrette

Trella Salad (mixed greens, grilled faux chicken, red peppers, avocado, walnuts and artichoke hearts with vegan dressing)

Asian Salad (mixed greens, grilled faux chicken, orange slices, toasted sesame seeds, vegan citrus soy dressing and vegan Thai peanut sauce)


Tagliatelle Salsiccia (vegan pasta, vegan tomato sauce, roasted faux Italian sausage, garlic, roasted red peppers and shallots)

Pizza (with vegan dough, vegan tomato sauce, and Daiya mozzarella):
