Thanks to Jay's, "vegetarian cheesesteak" is no longer an oxymoron. Though this hip and hip hop-inspired Mission eatery serves nine kinds of cheesesteaks (from the original to a pastrami cheesesteak), Jay's also caters to the vegetarian crowd with its tasty seitan sandwich. Seitan is a chunky wheat gluten with a meatlike texture, and it is sliced, grilled, and loaded -- steaming and greasy -- onto a thick roll with grilled onions and cheese. The seitan sandwich is a culinary triumph for vegetarians, and seems like the smarter choice for carnivores, too, given all the news about mad cow disease.
