This Week In Carbs
I convinced my bacon-loving brother to eat tofu. He didn't gag. It was a bite of that grilled tofu sandwich from Essene. Dude made the right choice.
PhillyFoodGuys rate the best of our veggie hoagies and falafel within an 8-block radius. Yes to Sarcone's and Cafe Nhuy. Just a minor quibble here: Where is Mama's Vegetarian? The South St. location is out of judging range? Love hurts.
Canvas Coffee is home of the bialy, the crisp, flat bagel that pairs extremely well with one of their tofu spreads: spring vegetable, garlic & herb, sun dried tomato, and spinach. Also in good taste? Their always-pleasant service. Sometimes I like a good slap in the face with my coffee, a rather fetching sneer or three as I shake in a packet of crack after I just left a decent tip out of curiosity. But friendly baristas are a study of wonder all their own, and that's been my pref lately.
