Restaurant Details

When Veggie Bite opened its first location in far-southwest-side Mount Greenwood a few years ago, "We had a lot of walkouts," says co-owner Sylvia Watycha--people weren't sure what to make of an 100 percent vegan fast-food joint. That location has now closed, but in the meantime Watycha and her partner, Moshe Shalom have brought their vegan versions of buffalo wings, gyros, meatballs, and Philly cheese steaks to Wicker Park. The pair won't reveal their recipes or suppliers, but will confirm that most of the items are made of seasoned, textured wheat gluten. What's in the "golden sauce"--a bright yellow, slightly grainy substitute for cheese in the chili-cheese fries--remains a mystery.
