Down South BBQ twist sandwich

<b>Down South BBQ twist sandwich: </b>Southern food is synonymous with buttery home cooking and barbecued meats; but for vegetarians and vegans, finding substitutes can be a challenge. Luckily, Original Soul Vegetarian in Greater Grand Crossing is a meat-free haven that doesn't skimp on traditional southern flavor and down-home charm. The Chatham restaurant also distributes pre-packaged goods to Whole Foods and other local markets; however, ordering the acclaimed BBQ twist sandwich on-site is an experience unlike any other. The $6 burger-like creation is an impressive feast for the eyes and taste buds, piled high with juicy seitan riblets, tangy barbecue sauce and veggie trimmings on a sturdy vegan bun. <i>205 E. 75th St., 773-224-0104</i>
