Actual resemblance to an authentic New Orleans po'boy is minimal – for one, prolonged exposure to Wheatsville's vegan version isn't likely to induce a heart attack – but we love WV's popcorn tofu po'boy precisely for its antitraditionalist whimsy. The deli starts with the classic chewy French roll, then gets creative with perfectly seasoned and textured fried tofu, fresh veggies like cucumbers and carrots and sprouts, and, finally, WV's divine homemade cashew-tamari dressing. Bon temps, indeed.
