When vegan in Philly do as the vegan Philadelphians do.
Cheesesteaks are a hot topic here in Philadelphia. Be prepared to answer the age-old question Pats or Genos? Hesitate to answer, you may get an ear full of opinions you never knew existed. While Genos and Pats are the cheesesteak legends that light up Passyunk Avenue like the Las Vegas strip, there are an abundance of cruelty-free cheesesteak options that even Rocky would approve.
