For just a second, ignore the whole "pork roll vs taylor ham" debate, and just ask yourself if you'd be willing to try vegan pork roll.

Alternative Plate started as a foodtruck that has a permanent set-up in Lake Como, and they've since opened up a brick-and-mortar location, also in Lake Como. They focus on things like plant-based, non-GMO ingredients.

The vegan pork roll has been an item people come just to check out for themselves, and is made of

house-made pork roll (a wheat-based product) with a thick slice of tofu flavored to taste like scrambled eggs, plant-based sausage and bacon, avocado, tomato and a spicy house-made ketchup on an everything bun.

I've tried tofu before (once). I understand that it can be flavored to taste like anything, and I guess the texture could be described as sort of rubbery eggs, so that might not be that far off from the real thing. I tried one of those "impossible burgers" when I was on vacation a few months ago, and while it was close to the real thing, if you gave me a blind taste test I'd be able to tell the difference. I'd be down to try vegan pork roll, just with low expectations.
