Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: the pulled unpork from Hogtown Vegan

At the Hogtown Vegan, the eats are decidedly un-vegan — in sentiment at least. With items like the Reuben, “wings” and a Philly “cheese steak” sandwich filling up the menu, this interpretation of vegan breaks all the so-called rules, with hearty, comforting options drawing in folks who can’t stand the idea of a kale salad (or have simply had their fill of the stuff).

The pulled unpork sandwich ($12) is one of the eatery’s most popular picks. Using pulled TVP (a.k.a soy meat), chefs try to replicate traditional pulled pork. The TVP is marinated overnight in house vegetable stock and then ripped apart, just as one would do with pork. After being dredged in homemade barbecue sauce, the unpork is topped with creamy non-mayo coleslaw and crammed into a sesame seed bun.     

If this doesn’t convert non-vegans, we don’t know what will.

Hogtown Vegan, 834 Bloor St. W., 416-901-9779
