Hello everyone! Today I am going to review a dining establishment. My boyfriend, Ben, lives in Pennsylvania. Sometimes I can be difficult finding food to eat going from the vegetarian's haven of New York, to Pennsylvania full of farms and sports lovers. We have been dating for almost 3 and a half years (plus I spent 4 years of college in PA) so We have found a few locations with great veggie options that are staples in our diet when I spend the weekends with him.
Ask any person that lives in the Philly area, Wawa runs through their blood (just like how pizza and bagels runs through a New Yorker's blood. Wawa is a convenience store/gas station/food place. As with most things in Pennsylvania advertisements highlight their dead animal options. However, if you look a little deeper its not hard to find some great veggie choices!
The isles of Wawa are filled with snacks and junk food, with a small refrigerated section that has veggies, fruits, cheeses, and of course meats. However, the gold of Wawa is located on the other end. This is the Made to Order section. How this works is you go up to the touch screens and choose from a wide variety of sandwiches and other foods, that they will make the way you want it. I always opt for the cheese sandwich which I pile high with veggies.
What you see here is pepper jack cheese, cukes, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, parmigiana cheese, salt, pepper, and pesto sauce all on a 6 inch whole wheat role. Yum! All the ingredients are fresh and the bread is always so soft. The best part is that you can pick any toppings, bread, cheese, or anything else you like to make it perfect for you. I Love myself some subway but I hate telling the people all the things I want of my sandwich and getting weird looks like why I always skip the meat. This way I could make the most random combination of foods, hold the judging.
They also have plenty of hot sides to choose from on the made to order screen like soups and mashes potatoes. But I always opt for the mac and cheese. It is really cheese and a great side to my sandwich Oh, and Ben's cat loves sharing some with me :)
Have you ever been to Wawa? If you are in the Philly area, do you plan on stopping by?
Bye from the Veggie Side!
