Yes, at Paisano's, we understand that more and more people are becoming health conscious and are making the necessary changes in their diet; which is why we have introduced more vegetarian/vegan dishes to our menu. We use thick eggplants and mushrooms as some of the ingredients in our veggie sandwiches because these vegetables are filling enough and will replace conventional meat ingredients. We got rid of the deep fat frier eons ago. We prefer to bake the eggplants prior to placing them in the sandwiches. We also include the finest cheeses, the freshest red peppers and lettuce in a lot of the veggie dishes we serve. Our veggie sandwich dressing includes balsamic vinegar or vegan mayo; these are healthier options for vegetarian dishes than heavy cream based salad dressing.

The veggie sandwiches served at Paisano's offer loads of nutrition in a nice compact package. We pay great attention to making these nutritious and
delicious sandwiches. Our veggie sandwiches are made using only quality lettuce, cheese, tomato, onions, vegan mayo and other ingredients. We understand that a veggie sandwich made correctly will provide a healthy and filling option to meat. We have employed the best veggie food preparation technique to ensure that all the goodness (nutritional value) in our veggie sandwiches is not lost.
