Eat at Jumbos

The ever talented and connected Sarah Wolf mentioned to me that I should check out Eat at Jumbos. Her friend Grover Taylor owns this unique place in Somerville, on Broadway, in Ball Square. It turns out, they have a lot of vegan options and are working on more. Now this place is your classic pizza and sandwich joint with a wonderful twist; they have tofu, seitan and vegan cheese. Yes, you can find all those gooey, junky, sometimes deep-fried options in vegan form. They also have a really friendly knowledgeable staff who know what vegan means as well as 100% recycled pizza boxes and a specially designed delivery bike.

My two vegan sons, and almost vegan husbands went nuts over their options. We went there on our way back home from a weekend in Cambridge, on a cold, gray, Sunday afternoon. We had a pizza with vegan cheese, tofu tenders with hot garlic sauce, french fries, and a seitan steak bomb sandwich. My 9 year old son, Deven, ate half a large pizza. He was the only one that was interested in dinner later.

We chatted with the owner for a bit. He is a super nice guy who really wants to provide options for vegans. He has done an amazing job. I gave him and his staff some guest passes and he promised to come to Somerville to try a class.
