Vegan Falafel Sandwich

Vegan Falafel Sandwich

Brassica, a new comer in the Short North, hands down, gets my vote for “best falafel sandwich” in Columbus. If the custom opportunity of building the sandwich myself wasn’t enough reason to love it, the care they put into making every component downright delicious sealed the deal. Sumac and paprika seasoned fries was a fresh twist (though I rarely eat fries). Truth-be-told they had me at fresh baked pita, house made baba ganoush, “crispy” onions and that roasted red pepper sauce. They ensure you can get a robust infusion of healthy nutrients with fresh pressed juice that is fairly affordable.  Brassica continues to strive with their organic, local and sustainable packaging standards typical of their sister establishments, Northstar Café and Third and Hollywood.
  A boon to vegan options in Ohio would be local production of the mighty, omega fatty acid rich hemp seed. I was once told (by someone with the farm bureau) the dream of an industrial grade hemp sector would never happen in Ohio as long as marijuana remained illegal because “it would be too easy for the illegal variety to be hidden amidst the industrial crops.” Issue 3, controversial as it is, and though it does not address legalizing hemp at all, could (by that previous rationale) be a gateway to a new hemp strong agricultural economy in Ohio.
