WITH 18 venues nominated and more than 200 votes cast so far, the first round of the V for Veg Best Vegan Cheesesteak in Philly is buzzing.
Two recent entries to the top five are making their mark as fans (and proprietors!) keep spreading the word. Blackbird Pizzeria is clearly out in front, but that first-place position doesn't look as unassailable as it did at first.
In descending order: Carmen's at Reading Terminal Market, Govinda's Gourmet to Go, HipCityVeg and Hibiscus Juice Bar are also strong contenders.
