Spending a week in Philly has been an awesome chance to get out and check the vegan scene. So far it has been an awesome experience.
Shortly after landing at PHL, I hit the road and had dinner at Hip City Veg on South 40th.
The spot was super nice, and had seats in the huge front window for epic people watching. I arrived later in the day, even after dinner, so the place was pretty empty.
The next challenge was to choose something from the menu. It isn’t a super expansive menu, but there was a decent variety of things. After hearing rave reviews of the Disco Chickin Sandwich, I ordered one up. I added a side of sweet potato fries, and the mysterious black bean dip.
Of all the vegan food staples out there, I feel the humble soy curl gets a bad rap. Basically, there is nothing that sounds good or enticing about a “soy curl.” Yet as many vegans know, these nutritious, easy to store, easy to prepare curls are amazing meal starters and replace chicken in almost any way.
