Peter Harris enjoyed an Impossible Cheesesteak and a Bobbie on a recent visit to Capriotti’s

Attention all Wilmington vegans who still crave the taste of a beef sandwich: you are in luck.

Even though Capriotti’s sandwich shop on Union Street introduced the Impossible Cheesesteak only about a month ago, the new item has already become a hit.

The Impossible Cheesesteak is a plant-based sandwich that has sparked interest among many types of foodies. The new addition allows Capriotti’s to cater to a larger crowd of customers, while also retaining the quality of a beef cheesesteak.

 

For instance, my vegan sister can now go to Capriotti’s to get a sandwich. Veganism has become progressively more popular over the 21st Century, seeing a sharp surge in people adopting diets void of meat, dairy, and fish.

While ordering the Impossible Cheesesteak may not be perceived as cool from a high-schooler perspective, it is clear that Capriotti’s has made an innovative decision that clearly strikes a chord with a lot of people.

I went to Capriotti’s a few weeks ago to give it a try, and can confirm that the sandwich is up to par with all the buzz surrounding it.

 

Since I am primarily dairy-free, I ordered a sandwich with just Impossible Meat and peppers. Even with the Impossible Meat being more of a focal point, I still was very impressed. 

While ordering the sandwich, I talked to one of the cooks. He said the Impossible Cheesesteak is one of the most popular items on the menu. (Funny enough, they think the cheese is a big part of the sandwich’s appeal.)

Not only is the Impossible Cheesesteak delicious, but it is also hard to distinguish from its beef counterpart.

Peter Harris tried the Impossible Cheesesteak at the flagship Capriotti’s at 510 N. Union Street

While the Impossible Beef is a bit thinner in texture, the sandwich still provides a mouthwatering taste comparable to a normal beef sandwich.

In addition to testing out the Impossible Cheesesteak, I also treated myself to my favorite sandwich from Capriottis, the famous Turkey Bobbie. Although I may be a little biased with my love for that legendary Thanksgiving on a roll sandwich, the Impossible Cheesesteak did not pale in comparison.

 

The innovative and high-quality sandwiches are not the only thing that makes Capriotti’s appealing. The unpretentious and unique ambiance also makes Capriotti’s on Union Street a cool place to check out.

Anyone opting for a plant-based diet, but still wanting to enjoy the taste of a good cheesesteak, Capriotti’s is definitely the place to go.
