Vegan Food is in

Boston Black-owned restaurants have grown in number. Thirty-six of them participated in a Black History Month promotion that encouraged everyone to make at least four visits that month to a black-owned restaurant. The establishments are diverse including African, African American, Caribbean, Haitian, Jamaican, Italian and other ethnic cuisines. Once a year there is an ethnic restaurant shoot out where $50 admits you to an all you can eat festival-like venue.

Allston's Cambridge street is home to a trio of restaurants vegetarians, vegans, macrobiotic thinkers, and whole food fans are going to love. This writer bought a vegan falafel sandwich for the first time ever over there and it was special. I'll tell you what I think about it below.

Vegan Falalel Sandwich
Whole Heart vegan falafel

The dish features falafel links added to the middle of a tasty hot dog bun. A strip of flavored sauce tinted to a light, lemony tahani is dripped on top. There are other flavors in the sandwich made by chef magic but I couldn't identify them all. I added a dash of red hot sauce and put moist, softened shitake mushrooms on the side. This sandwich is highly recommended.
