Roasted Vegetable Sandwich

Jerk Tofu Sandwich

Apple-Cinnamon Donut

1. Jerk Tofu Pineapple Sandwich
From the menu: "Jerk Tofu Pineapple. Smoked tofu, jerk sauce, pineapple, mixed peppers, red onions, with sweet potato fries. $ 7.81"
The smoky-flavored tofu was nice: a bit of liquid smoke without tasting like a chiminea. The sautéed red and green bell peppers together with caramelized were fairly pedestrian but added nice flavor and texture. The jerk sauce definitely wasn't what I was expecting: Pale, creamy and black peppery rather than a red-hued paprika-cinnamon-nutmeg blend. The focaccia bread has good flavor, with fresh herbs, and is soft and nicely griddled; my only complaint is that the amount overwhelms the daintier portions of the sandwich fillings.

2. Roasted Vegetable Sandwich
From the menu: "Eggplant, squash, zucchini, sun-dried tomato, Kalamata Olives, Peppers. $ 7.81"
The only additional tasting note is that there is a light balsamic dressing on the sandwich.

3. Apple-Cinnamon Donut
From the menu: Not listed. Also, I'm not sure what the price was, but together with my sandwich and tax I paid $11.50.
Gooey inside; crunchy sugar outside. Definitely not a Cake donut but nonetheless delicious.

We left feeling full but, as my companion said, in a good way. Despite the line, we were both served in about 5 minutes. There is not really sufficient space to sit but it was not a problem: we walked over to Union Square Park, where the sunlight helped to produce such gorgeous photos.

Terri, Chelsea,
