10 real Philly vegan cheesesteaks to try during DNC week

I was assisted in pulling this together by Philadelphia Vegan Cheesesteak Czar Jonathan Bagot, who also provided commentary on his top three places. Bagot, one of the first judges in the Best Vegan Cheesesteak in Philly contest (maybe
the first, with his last name earliest in the alphabet), had started the first Web site listing of vegan cheesesteaks in Philly, which evolved into VeganJawn.com.”

And the best vegan cheesesteak in Philly is…

Blackbird!

I was truly honored to be chosen as a judge in this contest. All the sandwiches(and burrito) were amazing and I think Philly vegans would be incredibly lucky if those were our only choices. However, there are a lot of other amazing vegan cheesesteaks out there that barely got voted for because they just don’t have the social media muscle. So get out there and try them all. Maybe next year we can see if Blackbird is able to defend their championship against a newly discovered favorite.

name change, new domain

when i first purchased yourdaughterstiedupinabrooklynbasement.com at about 3am on some morning back in 2007 i thought it was just going to provide me a slightly entertaining domain that quotes a notorious big song(hypnotize). i never thought it would still exist over 5 years later. and here we are.

i’ve gotten a lot of traffic and a lot of very nice emails from people over the years — thanking me, recommending places, etc. so i figure why not make the address a little easier to remember with less typos.

so here we are.

hopefully with this format i’ll also be able to write about some non-cheesesteak items i find around the city.

thanks for visiting.
