Did you know that Philadelphia’s ballpark has been named this year’s most veg-friendly US ballpark by the animal-rights group? Our very own Citizen’s Bank Park tops PETA’s list of 2012’s most veg-friendly stadiums across the country. Unbelievable!
The park’s yummy menu of meatless choices includes faux “chicken-steak” and barbeque “pit beef” sandwiches, veggie dogs, and black bean burgers.
Other ballparks named for providing more vegan options on their menus are Seattle’s Safeco Field, Detroit’s Comerica Park, Oakland’s O.co Coliseum, Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, New York’s Citi Field, Los Angeles’ Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Washington’s Nationals Park, Pittsburgh’s PNC Park, and Minnesota’s Target Field.
Who would have thought that a ballpark in our backyard, the home of the Cheesesteak, would be honored this way? Next time you are at the park, instead of heading for the Cracklin’ Slow Roasted Pork Sandwich or the Bull’s Giant Turkey Leg, take a look at these options:
- Alley Grill in Left Field Plaza for their Southwestern Veggie Burger
(Gluten Free Options)
- South Philly Market behind Section 128 for their Vegan chicken sandwiches, gluten-free snacks and gluten-free hot dogs and buns
- Planet Hoagie in Ashburn Alley. We recommend, “The Poppy,” with Fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted eggplant, roasted red peppers and sundried tomatoes OR “the Vedura Vegetarian Wrap,” with roasted eggplant, broccoli rabe, roasted red peppers, sharp provolone. Or, try the “Vedura Salad,” served with roasted eggplant, broccoli rabe, roasted red peppers, and sharp provolone cheese.
- South Philly Market in Sections 128, 206 and 318 for either the Vegan Hot Dog, which also happens to be a part of their dollar dog days at Citizens Bank Park. Or, go for the Vegetarian Black Bean Burger, a quick culinary masterpiece.
