Great news. Which Wich takes away the guesswork and just tells you right on its own web page which options are vegan.
I visited five (5) times to get a free 7” Wich each time (radio prize.) I took one for the team and ate white bread, which is “poison” according to commentator Dave, but my gift certificates didn’t say I could get a Lettucewich or a Bowlwich. As you probably have noticed, the wheat breads at these types of establishments don’t tend to be vegan because they contain honey, and if that honey contains the herbicide glyphosate, then it could be “poison” as well.
What you do is walk in and grab a paper bag that says “Vegetarian” and a red Sharpee (bring hand sanitizer!) Then you select the options based on your knowledge of which ones are vegan-friendly. You also select “Hotwich” or “Coldwich.”
I tried two (2) different basic vegan Wiches: a light and delish Tomato & Avocado style one and a heartier and spicier Black Bean Patty one. (I eventually figured out that the latter is better as Hotwich.) Their other vegan Wich is Hummus, but you can add hummus anyway at no extra charge. However, there is an extra charge for avocado (unless you choose the Tomato & Avocado Wich.)
Here’s my tip: don’t select too many spicy options because once I got jalapenos even though I didn’t select them. So, basically assume your Wich will be spicier than you expect it to be. Also, bring your own plastic fork!
