The soft, fresh-baked naan at Bread for All, the casual Middle Eastern café and bakery in Westport, could make any sandwich better. But why try it at home when the vegetarian sandwiches here are wonderful? The one we crave most is the Kurdish falafel. "We put a little bit of chili paste in the batter, just enough to give it a kick," a cook here tells us. The meatless patties are then folded into a circle of spongy naan with onions, tomatoes and a light parsley-flecked tahini. The eggplant and the cauliflower spend a hot minute in the deep fryer before they hit the griddle, a touch that eliminates excess oil and ensures that the veggies are soft, with just a slightly crispy exterior. You may not think you like cauliflower, but this sandwich really is for all.
