Toad Style isn’t your typical vegan restaurant. This tiny Bed-Stuy sandwich shop is putting out vegan versions of hearty dishes like banh mi and cheeseburgers. I’ve been curious about jackfruit as a meat alternative ever since I heard about it in Nepal, so I sampled the BBQ pulled jackfruit sandwich. The jackfruit was slightly firm and a little sweet, and paired nicely with the cole slaw and spicy pickles that topped the sandwich. I can’t explain the name of the restaurant, or how an obscure “style” of kung fu relates to vegan sandwiches, but it’s definitely worth a visit.
