Tempeh Reuben, Garden to Grill
Dharma’s in Santa Cruz serves the world’s most amazing vegan tempeh Reuben piled high with gooey Swiss “cheese” and tangy sauerkraut. But 150 miles is a long way to travel for a sandwich (or is it?); luckily there’s a tasty option closer to home. Garden to Grill’s take on the sandwich ($10.50) is on rye (of course) with thick layers of tempeh bacon, avocado, sauerkraut, pickles and mayo. With a side of fries—get the garlic ones for $1.50 more—it makes for a satisfying plant-based Dagwood-worthy lunch without the commute. Or the beach, for that matter—but you can’t have it all. 2315 K Street, www.gardentogrill.net.
