...your town SUCKS.

Now that we have our own phorum (ugh) can we decide once and for all what phucking vegan steak sandwich is the one ring to rule them all?

Blackbird's seitan cheesesteak?
Monk's seitan cheesesteak?
Govinda's chicken cheesesteak?
The one at the ballpark?

Are there others?

I was hoping someone would have already posted the 30 Rock clip in such a thread! You rock!

I'd object more vocally, but I'd be crushed under the weight of the hypocrisy *glances at username* so... phine.

Blackbird for the win! By far!! I've had Govinda's, Monk's, Sketch's, Pope's, Campo's at Citizen's Bank Park and Blackbird's definitely trumps all.

My vote goes to Govinda's, but I like faux-chicken way, way more than faux-steak, so I am biased.

You should have been there!

Govinda's "chicken" cheese steak blows Blackbirds out of the water in my opinion. Both are damn yummy. But, Govindas is insanely creamy and ooey gooey.

With that said, these are the only two I have tried. So I probably should not pick a winner until I have eaten them all. And, I thought the cheese used at the ballpark was not vegan. How can you have a vegan cheese steak with non vegan cheese? Am I getting that info wrong?

The last piece of meat I ever ate was at Monks and it made me sick :( Should I try their vegan cheese steak?

The P.O.P.E. has a seitan version, had it once, wasnt anything to blow you away.

Sabrina's has one, had it a while ago, cant remember much about it so i figure it was average as well.

Homeslice in Northern Liberties makes a bunch of varieties, still need to try one though.

Yeah depending on how many overpriced Bud Lights I've had by the time I make it there, sometimes I remember to not get cheese (in which case it's not a cheesesteak) and sometimes I don't care (in which case I'm not a vegan.) And then I wash it down with crab fries, which are not actually made with crab *phew*.

I forgot about Homeslice! Why is everything good on the other side of Center City? Good thing this is such a small town.

Blackbird seitan vs. Govinda chicken. A battle for the ages, I guess.

Has anyone tried Frak's Steaks in Manayunk? I haven't had a chance to make it out there yet, but they started serving them up a month or so ago.

I have a poser-hipster bike that I need to ride more often. And I need a helmet. And it's so cold now. I think three excuses is enough.

i used to wear ski-pants over my work pants in the winter. :-) it was insanely effective. just try them over your jeans when going shopping for them. sure you'll look like a giant, but you'll be warm!
(another awesome thing about ski pants, they're too thick to get caught in your chain!)

QUESTION ABOUT BLACKBIRD:

I'm ordering tons of stuff tomorrow to bring home to my parents! Sooo excited. They actually are too. I hope they are impressed. (Omnis.)

We want the South Philly pizza. We are big toppings people. Last time, when we created our own, they were really stingy with the toppings; it was mostly cheese. Are they usually more generous with the toppings or should I ask them to be and accept that they might charge me extra?

That's a good solution to the leg-warmth problem. I have runner's thermal tights-type things that I wear under my pants - that also can be effective. Although no amount of bundling-up can change my severe case of I-just-don't-wannas.

But if I don't get to Grindcore soon... I still haven't been, though I'm really motivated by almond milk lattes.

Mmmmm, almond milk lattes are so worth it! I'm so glad I don't live close or work close. I would be there every day spending all of my money on lattes and treats.
