While searching for new restaurants to try I came across Homegrown - a local sustainable sandwich shop. They have 2 vegan sandwiches so we went for dinner last night - I mean it seems like the kind of place I really like to support. First up hummus and roasted red pepper sandwich with avocado, cucumber and arugula. I love the hummus sandwich at Cherry St so I was hoping that this would be just as good. was not. The bread wasn't amazing - good but not the best I have had - and it totally overpowered the filling. You couldn't taste the hummus at all. The pepper - they might as well not be on the sandwich. Since the bread was just alright and that was all you could taste this sandwich was just alright. Not that good.

The soup yesterday was Potato Lemongrass so we tried a cup of that as well. It was...interesting, but not in a good way. I don't know what it tasted like, lemongrass I suppose but not like anything lemongrass flavor I have ever had. It was...odd. There were a lot of chunks of different things in the soup that I couldn't identify. It was just odd and not my thing. Not the worst, but not the best either.

The other sandwich they have is seasonal squash and snap pea pesto with sweet corn, green beans and tamari onion. This one was a lot better than the hummus one, you could still taste the filling and the bread didn't overpower it. It still wasn't the best sandwich and I wouldn't go back specifically for it. I would never day "Hey let's go to Homegrown for dinner!" It was just alright. Since there are so many other places that you can get amazing sandwiches I wouldn't spend the money here. Also, the small sandwich is $6 - a large $10. Since the small didn't really fill us up it would be $10 for a so so sandwich.

The one good thing about Homegrown - homemade sea salt and pepper potato chips. These were delicious! I would stop by and pick up some whenever I am in the area. They were a little bit sweet and very peppery and just perfect. Super crispy and I cannot say enough good things about them. Definitely check them out.
