Beating the Meat: Veggie Sandwiches at Taps and Oregano's

Though I may have some carnivorous tendencies (mmm...carne asada), occasionally I get an urge to get closer to Mother Nature via some fresh vegetables. When a salad just won't do and a veggie burger seems too processed, there's always the classic vegetarian sandwich -- or as I like to call it, the Plantwich.

I tracked down two restaurants boasting delicious sounding eggplant and vegetable sandwiches on their menus. Read on to find out which one had me pondering a veghead lifestyle and which one left me mourning the lack of meat.
