Several Sandwich Options

4 Posted on 02 / 16 / 2012

A few months ago Mercy For Animals worked with LooseLeaf Lounge to create a new vegan menu. This cute cafe already had a great veggie sandwich, the Original Vegan (tomato focaccia, basil pesto w/o Parmesan, artichoke hearts, black olives, cilantro, spinach, tomato, and red onions). In addition to this sandwich, they added:

- Chorizo Wrap: flour tortilla, Upton's Naturals chorizo seitan, romaine, avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic hummus and Daiya mozzarella
- Vegan Grilled Cheese: pumpernickel, romaine, buttery spread, garlic hummus, onion, tomato, and your choice of Daiya cheddar or mozzarella
- Ground Seitan: pumpernickel, Upton's Naturals ground seitan, romaine, avocado, tomato, red pepper, basil Vegenaise, and Daiya mozzarella
- Portobello: rosemary ciabatta, portobello marinated in a balasalmic & basil vinaigrette, with roasted red peppers, tomatoes, red onion, and mozzarella (sub Daiya)
- Eggplant Delight: white ciabata, organic eggplant marinated in a red wine vinaigrette, with basil thyme, garlic, and jalapeno pepper. Served with spinach, tomato, red onions, and mozzarella (sub Daiya).

In addition to sandwiches, LooseLeaf also has salads such as mixed greens, Asian, and hearty veggie. There are also a number of vegetarian soups, though not all are vegan. Vegan soups include miso, lentil, and hearty vegetable.

I tried the chorizo wrap. It came with a choice of veggies or chips. I got the veggies. The wrap was pretty good. It was pressed such as a panini which toasted the wrap and melted the cheese, adding a nice touch to the ground seitan. I'm not sure the hummus was really needed, though. I didn't feel it and it didn't seem to add anything. Overall, I'd get it again, but I'd love to try a different sandwich. Will be back soon!

Pros: vegan-friendly, local companies, quick

Great sandwiches

4 Posted on 07 / 02 / 2011

I have a confession to make...I'm in love with a sandwich, its name is Vegan Ground Seitan. It happened two nights ago at Looseleaf Lounge, a place that now offers several vegan sandwiches. It was love at first bite -a perfect combination of Uptons ground seitan, avocado, red peppers, tomato, Vegenaise, and Daiya cheese served on soft and tasty pumpernickel bread. I will be back many times for you Mr. Vegan Ground Seitan, you're the tastiest new vegan sandwich in the city!

PS - The owner is very nice and very enthusiastic about adding vegan options. Also, this is a small cafe so seating is limited. They also carry vegan cookies and other baked items too. 5 cows from me (HC only allows me to give 4 though).
