It’s not the only meatless cheesesteak in Philadelphia, but Rich Landau’s rendition at his vegan fast fooderie Wiz Kid might be the best. The chef and co-owner of vegan destinations Vedge and V Street combines marinated maitake and trumpet mushrooms with shredded seitan to make up his crisp, hearty filling, which hits the flat-top grill with onions to order. The most intoxicating element of this alterna-steak, however, might be its “Wiz,” a savory, tangy rutabaga-and-tofu fondue that convincingly mimics the tang and consistency of conventional cheese sauce.
