Venue Info

Are you even a real Philadelphian if you don't eat cheesesteaks? Are you even a tourist if you didn't get one on during your visit? These are obviously pressing questions, especially for vegetarians. But with Govinda's, even the meat-free among us can chow down on an absolutely scrumptious, faux chicken cheesesteak at this laid-back, counter-service spot. It may be imitation chicken, but it gives the city's meat-laden grease bombs a run for their money. Some other go-to's at this tiny shop are the pepper steak and desserts like vegan peanut butter chocolate cheesecake.
