This sunny vegan and vegetarian pita spot has something called “hippie sauce” on the menu. Need we say more? Now in three locations (the others are downtown at 2153 Mackay, tel 514/903-4744; and on the Plateau at 145 Mont-Royal est, tel 514/503-4800), Green Panther does veggies up right with traditional falafel and a variety of other healthy combos, with a choice of healthy-sounding sauces, or tahini, or the aforementioned “hippie.” The nice thing about going green is that you don’t need to wonder about the ingredients. It’s also nice to have the option of a half- or full-size sandwich. Kombucha and other organic beverages are available as well as vegan baked goods and smoothies. On a recent visit, the soundtrack was all Bob Marley.
