Veggie Hoagie, Planet Hoagie, Citizens Bank Park

Lucky me got to go watch the Phillies destroy the Mets last night. From the 8th row. YES. And as much as I love a Phillies game on a beautiful evening, I also love having some food options at the stadium. Especially when I’ve run to a game right after work.

Citizens Bank Park has won the “Best Vegetarian Food” award from PETA for three years, and there are plenty of options to choose from. Last night I stopped by Planet Hoagie (which has a much shorter line than a lot of the other cheesesteak joints) and picked up a “Verdura” hoagie:Roasted eggplant, broccoli rabe, roasted red peppers, and sharp provolone. Had the line moved slower, I would have realized that a whole wheat roll was an option, but as it was I stuck with the classic, chewy sesame seed roll. And I added hot peppers. And yes, on that half (on the left) I smeared some mustard on it. I was worried that without mayo or meat juice the roll would be dry, but the roasted red pepper actually worked to moisten things up nicely.

  1. I’ve had the vegetarian crab cake. It was okay, kinda dry. I can’t say how similar to actual crab it is, because I’ve never tasted actual crab, but the Verdura looks wayyyyy better! GO PHILS!
