Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of the surrounding geography with today’s deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of organic, epicurean grub at Vasuvio's Organic Gourmet Café. Serving only healthful, organic fare, the Main Street eatery offers free delivery within downtown SLC.
Sharpen mouth muscles with the very veggie sandwich, stacked with spinach, tomato, avocado, carrots, pickle, cheddar cheese, and peppers, all dressed with mustard and balsamic vinegar. Or, opt for the cold tuna sandwich. All sandwiches are available in half ($6.59) or whole ($8.59) sizes, as are salads ($7.29 for whole, $6.29 for half). Try the citrus cranberry salad, a fruity blend of mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, almonds, and feta. Vasuvio's also serves homemade organic soups with freshly baked garlic bread.
The benefits of eating locally are many, from humane treatment of animals to increased nutritional content and decreased likelihood the ozone layer will stand in your way when you’re trying to exit an elevator. Open six days a week for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner, Vasuvio's makes a convenient alternative to preservative-laden brown-bag lunches, a fitting picnic-basket stuffer, or a thoughtful nosh after a long day.
