  2. Black Bean Croquette with Rajas Nopales from The Tasteful Kitchen: This vegan dish is anything but dull: it’s served with slow cooked peppers, onions, cactus, organic roasted corn salsa, and avocado. Don’t miss the chili and cocoa roasted sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and greens sauté. ($16) 722 N. Stone Ave.

  3. Portobello Sandwich from Time Market: The bread is baked fresh daily, the arugula is crisp; the Portobello, perfectly cooked. Oh, and the mayo is amazing. Call it your perfect Wednesday night comfort food. ($8.99) 444 E University Blvd.

  4. Kale Salad from Falora: This is the kale salad to end all kale salads. The green curly kale comes massaged with extra virgin olive oil and a secret cashew dressing; Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, and sun dried tomatoes top it off. ($9.50) 3000 E. Broadway Blvd.

  5. Huevos Rancheros from 5 Points Market & Restaurant: So good, they were mentioned in our nation’s paper of record. Local corn tortillas come smothered in pinto beans, over-medium eggs, sharp white cheddar, house ranchero sauce, pico de gallo, avocado, and cilantro-serrano pesto. ($9) 756 S. Stone Ave.
