|I feel so "Beach Boys-ey". Palm trees and everything. Welcome to Palm Springs, California|
|Nice picture. Well, it's the Nature's Health Food & Cafe in the same shopping center. 555 S. Sunrise Way in Palm Springs.|
So I look on the menu board. Now bear in mind we're both headed off to Monsoon to get an Indian dinner. But I can't resist reading these:
|Vegan Entrees? What planet have I landed on?|
My sandwich came and I opened up the container to take a look and I swear I almost ate it right there and then. It smelled so delicious. Now I did ask the chef what brand of unsteak he used and he said he didn't know. Hmmm. I'll give them a call tomorrow and add the brand if I find out but here I am, 24 hours later sitting in New Orleans and every place I want to try seems to have closed at 10PM. This is one of the best sandwiches. It's loaded with steak and cheese, which I'm thinking is Treese because it just doesn't look like Daiya. It's packed with onions and green and red peppers and is just amazing. It is flavorful and peppery and the sweetness from the onions and peppers and bread all mix together.
|For a "to go" container this looks pretty inviting to me.|
|There is no lack of filling here. This is ANYTHING but skimpy! And colorful!!|

I did find myself here a few days later, which for me is like lightening striking twice in the same place. I ran into Bill, one of the owners who answered a few questions. The "meat" in the sandwich is their own veggie protein steak, marinated and then diced and sauteed up with some onions, peppers, and all the other good stuff I mentioned. The cheese turned out to be a Follow Your Heart mozz. It was good but I did also mention to Bill that there was also Treese and Daiya to look into as he mentioned they don't like to use it on the melts because it stays sort of chunky. As an aside, Bill mentioned to me that there were 103 items on the menu board.
I really didn't want to spend $42 on the 2 pound block of faux meats, fist since Bill described it as about the size of a shoebox and second I didn't want to think about keeping it frozen for 2 more days but it's on my bucket list of things to order.
