Now You Can Get Questlove’s Cheesesteaks No Matter Where You Are
The Roots co-frontman has teamed up with Goldbelly to ship his vegetarian version of the iconic Philly sandwich nationwide.
Questlove and cheesesteaks both hail from Philly. But now you’ll be able to get Questlove’s Cheesesteaks anywhere.
The Roots co-frontman has teamed up with Goldbelly to ship nationwide his vegetarian cheesesteaks, previously available only at Citizens Bank Park, where the Philadelphia Phillies play, and a handful of other venues.
Questlove’s Cheesesteaks are made with plant-based Impossible Meat 2.0 (a vegetarian “meat” made from soy and potato proteins), drenched with melted cheese, topped with banana peppers, pickles and onions and served on a roll from famed Philadelphia bakery Amoroso’s. The meat-free twist on Philly’s classic sandwich has a dedicated following — and now its fans can order it straight to their doors from anywhere in the U.S.
“At Goldbelly, we love creative riffs on classic comfort foods, which is why we're so excited to partner with Questlove to bring his plant-based Philly cheesesteaks to food lovers nationwide for the first time,” Goldbelly CEO and Founder Joe Ariel said. “As a Philly guy, Questlove knows his cheesesteak and he's created one not only healthy for you, but as delicious as the original.”
To be sure, the sandwiches also come with a healthy price tag. A four-pack will run you $99, an eight-pack $169 and a 12-pack $219. But cheesesteak lovers are a devoted bunch. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from all Questlove’s Cheesesteaks orders placed from now until the end of the year will be donated to America’s Food Fund, which aims to help people struggling with food insecurity put food on the table.
Questlove says he’s “so excited” that people all over the U.S. have a chance to eat the cheesesteaks he created. “As a huge fan of Impossible Foods, and a strong believer in the future of plant-based alternative meats, it’s my hope that people everywhere get to enjoy a classic Philly cheesesteak that’s not only delicious, but better for them and better for the planet,” he said.
