News – “This Vegan Philly Cheesesteak Will Make You Seriously Consider Veganism”

thrillist.com – When it comes to vegan food, people often turn up their noses at the notion of eating something completely devoid of meat and dairy. But Philadelphia’s Blackbird Pizzeriais looking to change veganism’s misconstrued reputation by paying homage to the city’s most notable sandwich: the cheesesteak.

 “I think the major misconception is that vegan food is bland or unfulfilling,” says chef and co-owner Mark Mebus. “That is really what we have kind of set out to change. We try to make things as flavorful as possible and really produce those nostalgic, comfort flavors.”
 Blackbird Pizzeria’s take on the cheesesteak gets its hearty, meaty flavor from seared seitan, which is cooked down with a splattering of garlic sauce and rosemary. Once grilled, hunks of seitan are loaded into a crusty hoagie, then finished off with a hefty pouring of house-made cheese whiz and griddled onions. If you didn’t know better, you could easily mistake Blackbird’s version for one from Geno’s Steaks.

I’ll tell you what if that got damn vegan cheese steak can make me forget that there’s no meat on that sandwich then I see no reason why I shouldn’t eat it.!!!! TO THE VEGANNNNNNNNS 🥦
