Fauxmaha, which recently announced it is moving from a food cart to a bricks-and-mortar spot in midtown, is getting national recognition: PETA named its bánh mì dog one of the 10 best vegan dogs in the nation.
The tofu and seitan dog comes topped with pickled carrots and radish, a spicy Sriracha “mayo” sauce and fresh mint and cilantro.
Other winners include the Crispy Cowboy at Phyto’s Vegan Eats in Las Vegas; the Hang Ten from Onion Maiden in Pittsburgh; and the Chicago Dog at Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace in Columbus, Ohio.

FOOD PROWL: We hit nearly every pizza restaurant in town to pick our three winners, and this remains one of my favorite food prowls we ever did. Spoiler alert: It was a three-way tie between Frank's Pizzeria, Dante Ristorante and La Casa. Read more.
LIGHTHOUSE PIZZA: This locally owned spot is about to open a second location in the Capitol District. Try the house signature Sparky slice, topped with spicy sauce, cooling cream cheese and lots of meat, including a hefty amount of sausage and pepperoni. Full review.
VIRTUOSO: Upping the pizza game in Benson, this slice house takes care with its product. Each slice has just the right amount of acidic, house-made red sauce, a perfect sprinkling of cheese and, in every case, plenty of toppings, but not so much that the svelte crust becomes weighed down. Full review.
NOLI'S PIZZERIA: I like Noli's enough to have reviewed it twice. The DiManzo is a neighborhood favorite. 2017 review. 2015 review.
VIA FARINA: I dig this Little Italy spot for more than just its pizza — try the rigatoni! But a number of their pizzas are great, too. The Autumno, a white pie topped with winter squash, pancetta, grana padano, Monatasio, calabrian chili oil and Saba is excellent. Full review.
PIZZERIA DAVLO: One of the only deep dish houses in the city, and, in my opinion, the most legit. Full review.
FRANK'S: I can't count the times I've been back to Frank's since I wrote this review in 2013. But I can remember the time I went with friends to tackle the restaurant's 30-inch "Big Joe." (Yeah, I managed not even one slice.) Full review.
A classic Margherita pizza from Dante in Omaha.
