The Vegan Cheesesteak Gods Have Spoken

And they're a little tired of your typico vegan sleaze. Home Slice's veggie cheesesteak is an entirely different non-animal. It could have been another seitan fest, the rapidly-propagating steak replacer that leaves one's stomach in a knot, but is such a pleasure on the way down. Slice could have faked it.

But this Liberties Walk pizzeria comes care of inspired hands. Their twist on the vegetarian steak involved a heavy hit of marinated tofu, mushrooms, onions, and peppers. It can be ordered small or large, wiz wit. Even more true to nature, the vegan cheese wiz is not nacho orange mud, but a thinner sauce that you can't readily detect. That cheese could use more zip. The most pronounced flavor comes from the mushrooms. However, this is a commendable effort and was a near-endless portion. It's not insane junk food, but there's enough of that around.

Oh, and let's not forget the pizza (vegan almond cheese, whole wheat crust).
