The New Vegetarian Sandwich?


Staff lunch from No. 7 Sub in Manhattan: General Tso’s Tofu with seaweed and pickles, Eggplant Parm with fontina, yellow squash, pickled jalapenos and BBQ potato chips (on the sub), Zucchini Cubano with smoked gouda, peaches and pickled daikon, and an fBLT (the “f” stands for fake, presumably), with soy bacon, lettuce, green and red tomatoes. We love the innovative vegetarian sandwiches (they make meaty subs as well). Some are better than others: the seaweed on the fried General Tso’s Tofu is a knockout, the BBQ potato chips on the Eggplant Parm are a nice, crunchy touch, the soy bacon… not that good. Either way, we’re happy to get a break from mozzarella with roasted red peppers.

    I don’t recall ever hearing of No. 7 Sub — these veggie choices sound fantastic, and so much more inventive than the usual obligatory "what do people eat if they don’t eat meat??" option.

    I had a delicious vegetarian sandwich this week at a local cafe: sprouts, tomato and avocado on herbed focaccia. Sublime! Of course, all of those sandwiches sound delicious, too — I loved baked tofu in sandwiches.
