Oak Park is just outside of Chicago, and happens to be the home of Frank Lloyd Wright.
On a visit there last week, we discovered a really cute vegetarian restaurant downtown called Munch.
I was elated when I saw a Jack Fruit BBQ sandwich with coleslaw on their menu. I've heard of this sandwich on numerous blogs and couldn't wait to try it. Would it be sweet? What would the texture be like? How could fruit be good with BBQ sauce? So many questions...
It wasn't exactly sweet, but did have a hint of sweetness. The texture was almost meaty (well, faux-meaty, I haven't eaten meat since I was three). It was pretty incredible. Such great flavor and so inventive.
We left and walked around for a bit, exploring the many homes of FLW. But before we headed home, I stopped back in to get a Vegan Chocolate Milkshake for the ride home...heavenly.
