Veg Out: Hershels East Side Deli

Vegans may have to stick with Kisses Knishes, but for the rest of us, there's always Hershels at the Reading Terminal Market for us half-ass vegetarians. My counter guy demanded that I eat it with mustard, although I don't even like the yellow stuff. He pumped a squirt of it onto my plate and dared me to argue. Kind of you, sir. I gave the condiment a shot on my spinach knish and surmised that it was already too late in life to change my tastes. Alas, I finished off the hearty jackpot of potato and spinach plain-style.

So are you vegan or vegetarian? I'm never sure. I fall in the latter camp.

The fact that you mentioned mustard is funny. I like mustard, but I didn't until my 20s. Mustard and mushrooms both grossed me out for most of my life... then, one day, I liked them. It was weird.

I'd always thought it was weird that grown-ups liked the two so much, and then I liked them so I thought... is this a sign I'm a grown up?

I'm vegetarian, but I was vegan for a bit, and still choose vegan options whenever possible.

Down with the 'shrooms, I must tell you.
