Another one of our favorite vegan sandwiches in Ann Arbor is the Falafel from Jerusalem Garden. We get it a few times a month as a midweek carryout dinner on those days that I’m too busy to cook. My daughter, Olivia, always orders it for us (the folks working there know us as Olivia’s dad and Olivia’s mom). She specifies the falafel with pickled turnips and thom sauce, which is a garlic paste and vegan as opposed to the garlic yogurt sauce. Oh goodness, it’s so delicious!
I was so hungry and excited to eat my sandwich that I neglected to take a picture of it. Imagine a hand made wrap stuffed with falafel, tomato, lettuce, hummus, pickled turnips (which are pink) and oozy garlic sauce 6 inches long and 3-4 inches wide that feels like it weighs a ton. Well, maybe a half a pound. I’m not sure but it’s weighty and so satisfying.
Jerusalem Garden is on Liberty in the old Seva location. They will be adding on a new deck for outdoor dining for this summer season in the spring. Inside it is open and airy and spacious. It’s not all vegan however so don’t expect many options.
I sure wish Ann Arbor would increase it’s vegan dining options!!
