Annapolis Tea Company
While I was in Albuquerque last month, I used the google machine on my iPhone to find a place to eat that was near the school where my brother-in-law teaches on the east side of town. I went with the tried and true search Urbanspoon [zipcode] gluten-free vegetarian and came up with a number of choices. After a couple of days of huevos rancheros, I was looking for something a little lighter. I found a place that was near the Sonic where I had stopped to get a limeade and do some research, the Annapolis Tea Company, or as they abbreviate, A Tea Co. The menu on the web indicated that they do all kinds of sandwiches and soups (as well as tea), and the sandwiches could be made on GF bread for an additional $1.00 fee. The menu looked promising, so I headed on over, fully intending to get a salad.
Even though I got there after closing (who knew?), the owner asked what I wanted. I bailed on the salad when I saw the sandwich choices, and picked a hummus, avocado sammy with fancy homemade pickles. He said that he could accommodate, so I took a seat. He brought out a well-endowed stack made on thick-sliced gf bread which turns out was made by Udi’s. It was everything a girl could want in a vegan gf sandwich: moist but not soggy, enough texture from the bread and crunch from the pickles to counterbalance the smooth spread of the hummus, sturdy enough to not disintegrate and big enough to feel like I’d gotten enough to eat. The owner tells me that he does gf and vegan soups every day, in addition to the sandwiches. If I had stayed in town longer, I would have liked to have tried them. The best I can do is to encourage folks to visit A Tea Co so that the restaurant stays in business and I can go visit on my next trip.
