You are here

I'm in Philadelphia. Are you?

Do we have an VW-ers in or around Philadelphia?  I am here for a few weeks, so if there are, we should meet up!  There is a vegan restaurant I want to go to but it remains to be seen whether or not I can get people to come. 

I'm in! I'll meet you there. Oh....wait... :(

:( you are about three hours away from me, but I suppose that is the closest any of the VegWebbers I know have been to Cincinnati...

Oh come on AC, Pensylvania and Montana are virtually neighbors!  :w00t!:
Just Kidding!  ;)

Unfortunately I think Cherry Street closed  :( but I'm not positive. 

KMK.  I live just outside of Philly!  I'd be happy to meet you somewhere and have dinner.  What vegan restaurant are you talking about?  There is Horizon, which I haven't been to yet, or Govinda's which is really, really good.

NOOO! You're right! That's what I get for recommending a restaurant somewhere I no longer live. I'm surprised my SIL didn't tell me this... she was in love with it and introduced it to me.

When I googled this came up as a potential substitute:

15th and Sansom isn't exactly Chinatown, but... close enough  ;)

Have a great time! Horizons used to be located about 20 minutes from where I grew up. Was so sad that I never got to it...  :( ... wasn't a very good veggie back then.

This is what I came up with:

All the desserts are vegan, and most of the other things they say are "veganizable."

OK, so let me see how my schedule is going and we can think about getting dinner one weekend, biodancer!

I should!

I'm so scared of cities though.  Terrified.  I don't like them.  I'm kind of scared of the thought of making my way to NYC by myself.  I can handle a subway/bus ride within Philly, though.  Maybe.  :-\

There is a fantastic Ethiopian cafe named Kaffa Crossing 4423 Chestnut @44th. I go there nearly every time I am in Philly.
Perfect fair trade organic coffee, veg combo and some vegan deserts.

The is also Satellite Cafe @ 701 S. 50th St. Good vegan options and desserts.

For Chinese vegan there is 1010 Cherry St. Which if I recall correctly that have machines in the basement that process all on site. I wandered down there once and to my amazement to where all vegan faux things conjured. There is also Kingdom, 129 N 11th Street.

On the topic of travel Fresh and Fressen in Toronto are freakin' kick ass.

I've heard of giannas but mostly average reviews.  I've never eaten there.  You should check out the philly thread on the ppk

Hrmmmmmm.....I'll look into it!  I can do it if I know someone would be able to meet me at the station.

Well, it would cost about $50 to go from Philly to NYC on the Greyhound, and it leaves like every half hour.  Not bad.  Are there other options that are better than Greyhound?  It's like the only bus I know.

OK, I live in the GTA and have never heard of Fresh and Fressen.  Where is it?

A great restaurant for anyone visiting Toronto is: Le Commensal.  The food is also kick ass!

http://www.commensal.ca/

Everything is labeled whether it is vegan, ovo lacto etc.  You put food on your plate, they weigh it and you pay by weight.

My omni sister loved it when we went.  Only been there once but might make a real effort to get back there this summer.  

I have never been to Philly but would like to visit.  Have fun KMK!

Veg On!
