Lunch at Perelandra
One of my favorite stops in Brooklyn Heights just happens to be Perelandra. This organic health food store isn't just for grocery shopping. They carry lots of all natural beauty products, a pretty great selection of beer and a carry out cafe in back with some stellar vegetarian selections like this TLT Sandwich.
Two slices of thick multi-grain bread slathered with avocado and wrapped around crisp romaine lettuce, fresh tomatoes and Tempeh Bacon Slices.
The Tempeh slices really do a nice job subbing in for regular bacon with its nutty flavor and slightly crisp texture. The start of the show is always the veggies though- super fresh from the market. It's a hearty, healthy way to spend lunch.
