The best faux meatballs in the country
I've done a lot of exciting Top 10 lists on this blog, but none quite as exciting as PETA's Top 10 Vegan Meatballs.
Normally I would continue to make fun of them (and me) except, hey, one of Baltimore's restaurants is on the list, the One World Cafe near Hopkins University. Its vegan meatball sub sandwich is a winner.
Suddenly I feel pretty good about the list, considering it's a national one. ...
It's never bad to be among the 10 best of anything in the country.
The press release announcing the list praises One World's sandwich by saying, "Bursting with flavor, the restaurant's faux meatballs have a truly 'meaty' texture, or 'mouth feel.'"
The No. 1 faux meatball can be found at Ike's Place, San Francisco, Ca. Actually, there are two vegan meatball choices there: the Vegan Meatless Mike and the Not So Sloppy Ike.
The only thing that I don't understand is why One World's Web site is the only one the PETA list doesn't link to.
