Congrats Mark, and the whole Blackbird team!
It’s that time of the year again!
“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.”
not sure how anyone could beat the royal’s, but we’ll see:
The Royal Tavern!
They definitely had my vote for best vegan cheesesteak. It’s hands down my favorite.

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.
