Brewpub’s tofu sandwich is big on flavor


From the menu … The Wrecking Bar Brewpub, 292 Moreland Avenue, Atlanta; 404-221-2600; wreckingbarbrewpub.com

My book club went to The Wrecking Bar in Little Five Points to discuss our monthly selection. One of our members ordered their Tofu Sandwich and quickly had us all try a bite. It was delicious! Since then, I have thought about going back just to order this sandwich — and I am not a big fan of tofu! I would love the recipe if The Wrecking Bar will share. Thanks! — Danielle Carter, Atlanta

Terry Koval of The Wrecking Bar is one of Atlanta’s most generous chefs, always willing to share a recipe. This sandwich is no longer on the menu, but The Wrecking Bar is making it available for a limited time right now.

Koval serves the sandwich on pain de mie buns from TGM Bread. You can buy those, too, but call ahead to the bakery at 678-927-9131 to make sure they’re available, or substitute your favorite hamburger bun. Pure Abundance Luna is a delicious cashew-based dairy-free cheese available at Whole Foods, Nature’s Garden Express at Krog Street Market, Sevananda and Nuts ‘n Berries.

Call it the candy bar war that peaked. When the makers of the distinctive Swiss confection Toblerone reconfigured their triangular treat last year to slim down its hallmark summits and widen the valleys between them, a potential rival — Britain’s Poundland discount chain — saw a niche in the market.
