Baguette Box on Pine makes a delicious braised tofu sandwich. It has crusty bread, slices of avocado, pickled diakon and carrots, onion, and some kind of aioli. It comes with a pile of cilantro and jalapeño slices, too, but I always pick those off and give them to whoever is eating lunch with me. If you like cilantro and jalapeño, you would probably really love eating lunch with me.

I was there on Saturday afternoon, enjoying that sandwich along with a side of fries. It was cold and windy outside and the fries were hot. There were big and funny paintings of adorable dogs on the walls. It was nice to be out of the rain. It was very pleasant.


"Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails came on the radio. "Hurt" is a very inappropriate song to have to hear while eating a braised tofu sandwich. Or any sandwich, really. It was almost as bad as having to hear Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah" while eating a bowl of noodles.
