On days that I have to go to court in Chicago, I usually skip breakfast and take advantage of the vast selection of food available in a cosmopolitan area. Even if its just a vegetable sandwich, it feels so much fancier when an “Über” sandwich maker prepares it, or maybe I have to convince myself that to feel better about spending $9 on a vegetable sandwich. Hannah’s Bretzel is across the street from the federal courthouse and I tried it for the first time this week. It’s menu is clearly marked with vegetarian and vegan items. I ordered the Vegetable Bomb (sliced cucumbers, vine tomatoes, avocado, red onions, alfalfa sprouts, watercress and baby arugula drizzled with housemade vinaigrette on organic whole grain baguette). It was much better than expected thanks to the arugula and house made vinaigrette. I picked the vegan soy nuts (what would make soy nuts unvegan?) as my side.
I also bought a Fearless Chocolate Bar.
It’s raw, crunchy and delicious. It’s like a healthy Nestlé Crunch.
