After lazying around our apartment the other day, Adam and I decided to take advantage of the unusually warm weather and head out for a walk. After strolling for a while, we began to get hungry and were craving a nice, hearty sandwich. Now, the words “hearty sandwich” are probably not normally associated with vegan and vegetarian sandwiches for most people. But when we came upon ‘snice, a vegetarian sandwich and coffee shop in Park Slope, the thoughts of sprouts and hemp seeds were replaced with words like “triple decker tofu club” and “vegetarian philly cheese steak sub.”
The menu at ‘snice was so long and creative, it took us some time to figure out what to order. After much thought and input from our server, we ordered and settled into a cozy booth and waited…getting even more hungry staring at the large and very interesting looking creations coming out of the kitchen.
I went with the smoked tempeh wrap with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, avocado, and a red pepper chipotle mayo. Very smokey and spicy with a nice chew from the tempeh…this was definitely a hearty and very filling wrap.
Adam went with The Fontina…crunchy ciabatta bread layered with arugula, caramelized onions, sun-dried tomato pesto and of course, lots of gooey melted fontina cheese. He loved it so much, I hadn’t even gotten through half my sandwich and he was already savoring the last bite.
There are so many other choices we wanted to try here…Don’t dismiss a meat-free sandwich’s ability to satisfy that hearty sandwich craving. A very “snice” lunch indeed.
