Jack's Corner

If you find yourself in Greensboro near the UNCG campus looking for a bite to eat, I highly recommend Jack's Corner Mediterranean Deli. Every time I go there, I wish that I could somehow magically pick it up and transport it to Winston-Salem. It's not a fancy place -- you place your order at the counter and they bring it out to you -- or a large one, but it offers a big selection of Greek and Middle Eastern dishes at reasonable prices. And, wonderfully, the menu clearly labels which items are vegan and which are vegetarian with dairy.

Among the vegetarian items on the menu are spanikopita, falafel, hummus, tabbouleh, baba ganoush and stuffed grape leaves. There's also a lentil-and-rice dish that sounds intriguing. I've never ordered it, though, because I can't not get one of their vegetarian combination plates. There are several to choose from, with various combinations of items. It's wonderful as a vegetarian to have so many options to choose from, it's hard to decide. And if you want just a small bite to eat, you can order any of the items separately. There's also a lot for carnivorous friends to choose from.

Jack's Corner is on the corner of Spring Garden and Aycock streets and is open 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
