Wolf and Bear’s has a special place in my heart. Their first cart was a short walk from my house, in a gravel lot that’s now–you guessed it–glass-fronted apartments or condos. Luckily, that’s not the end of the story. That little cart has turned into a TINY CART EMPIRE of three locations turning out falafel sandwiches with caramelized onion and eggplant, which I think we can agree the world needs a little more of.
In addition to falafel sandwiches, Wolf and Bear’s offers sabich, an Iraqi-Jewish traditional breakfast featuring hummus, amba (mango pickle purée), sliced hard boiled egg, grilled eggplant, diced onion, cucumber & pickles, freshly cracked pepper, parsley and salad greens topped with tahini sauce & olive oil on a warm pita, $7.50. Why have I never gotten this? BRB, examining my life choices.
Specify vegan if needed. Salads are available if you’re gluten-free, including the Gomasio: Home made gomasio (toasted sesame, sea salt and nori), red peppers, red onions, shredded beet and carrot, raisins on mesclun greens with house tahini sauce. $6.50. Oh, I’d eat the heck out of that.
Ask for vegan if you don’t want yogurt, etc.
