a bit of philly in grand rapids.

One of my coworkers and I have had plans to grab lunch together this afternoon for weeks and I was thrilled when she was up for trying out Bartertown.  I’ve really liked it the two times I’ve been there, so I was excited to try it again and introduce it to someone new.

I was even more excited that they had a vegan Philly cheesesteak as a special!  You know, in case I didn’t get my fill of them last weekend.

I didn’t.  This one came with buffalo tofu, walnut crumbles, 6 kinds of peppers & 3 kinds of onions, and vegan pepperjack cheese.  Nom.

Yep, still good.  Not quite as good as the ones in Philly, but I don’t think that’s unreasonable.  I mean, it is the Philly cheesesteak after all.  Bartertown Diner, you’re officially okay in my book.  Particularly if you offer this again.

The cupcakes aren’t too shabby, either.

Chocolate cake is really not my favorite, but the chocolate peanut butter cupcake was to die for!

I just found your blog, I’m glad to find another MI blogger, I was starting to fell a bit lonely (I live just south of Flint). That sandwich looks awesome, I’ve never been to GRapids, but my husband goes for work occasionally though I dont think he’ll be able to talk the boss into eating at a vegetarian restaurant 🙁 i look forward to reading more 🙂

I know it isn’t even 9 a.m. as I’m reading this, but I would so like to trade in my oatmeal for that that vegan philly steak. yum.
