Part of city doesn't matter. But now I have a new wrinkle because I volunteered to find a place for a bigger dinner, so now looking for a place that can accommodate 10-15 and serves alcohol.

Hmm places that are big, not too noisy, and have veg/omni food... might have to think on it a bit

a couple off the top of my head: Han Dynasty, Farmicia

Cantina Los Caballitos/Dos Segundos might work for a larger omni-crowd and serves alcohol.

Han Dynasty definitely is spacious enough. (DanDan, is much much better and the new Han Dynasty spin-off, but much smaller space).

Khyber Pass Pub might be able to accommodate you if you call in advance.

Indeblue for Indian food in center city, vegan friendly and serves alcohol.

Strangelove's beer bar (and they have vegan desert!)

Zahav is amazing but $$$

Wow, all of those places look pretty awesome. I'm checking with folks to see if they will tolerate Mexican food because I want to have that cheesesteak burrito at Dos Segundos.

ETA - Ooh, I really want that lemon ginger cake at Farmicia, too.

I have a very long list of places I would like to try here - Vedge is definitely on that list.
HipCity Veg is fantastic! Ariann - I look forward to hearing about which place you decided on, and how everyone felt about it!

Everyone: YOU MUST GO to Panda Cafe in South Philly (at Snyder and Passyunk). Really delicious, super affordable, all vegetarian/ mostly vegan Indonesian food. The owner is really knowledgeable about veganism; most menu items are automatically vegan, and most of the others can be modified to be vegan. I had the gado gado (sans egg) and Es panda (sweet iced drink with coconut milk, red beans, mung beans, and grass jelly). Boyfriend had the tofu croquettes appetizer and some noodle jawn ("Happy Panda" maybe?) and was similarly blown away. Seriously, this place is SO GOOD.

thanks for the heads up!! never been but will definitely check it out!

not sure if you live down that way but went to http://amerithaiphilly.com/ for the first time a week or so ago and it was really good. They have 5-6 vegan items listed and other curries and such can be using tofu.

Okay I just had lunch from this place today and it is LEGIT!!! And they deliver!!! And it was delicious! And soo cheap! I didn't have a menu to order from but now that I have one in my possession, I can't wait to try everything, including those traditional drinks like the Es Panda and Es Dawet. I ordered the tofu croquettes, Delicious Panda noodles, Drunken Noodles and the Sego Kucing. Everything was very tasty and the owner was really nice. My new favorite place, I am so stoked!

Glad you liked it. I can't wait to go back yet again.

Apparently Insomnia Cookies now has a vegan (and gluten-free) chocolate chip cookie. I've not tried it yet, but yay for more and more mainstream vegan options. The Center City location is conveniently near a Ben and Jerry's scoop shop. . . I'm anticipating a scoop of vegan B&J's atop a cookie in my near future.

On another note, has anyone bought the Follow Your Heart vegan egg in the Philly area?

Omg wait the CC Ben & Jerrys has the vegan options for scoopies?!?! waaaaant!

My mom always likes to go to Insomnia in Manayunk after Han Dynasty in Manayunk and that smell would KILL me. I'm so glad they have a vegan one now!

I couldn't find the vegan egg anywhere when I was home a few months ago. (But I found it here (in London), weird.)

In the art museum area. . . Mugshots, OCF Coffee House, Belgian Cafe, and there is a Whole Foods nearby if you want to grab groceries/ hot bar stuff. The art museum is so cool! If you have time, Eastern State Penitentiary is worth a tour.

There are lots of places to eat around the Art Museum. La Calaca Feliz on Fairmount Avenue has vegan options, as does Era, the Ethiopian Restaurant at Poplar and 28th. Angelino's Pizzeria has red pie options that are vegan by default. Haven't tried the Thai or Sushi places around 26th, but they look as though they have options. V-Street is Vedge's slightly less pricey sibling, and it's near Ben and Jerry's. Vedge prices are reasonable for the quality of the food, and you can get away with ordering two dishes instead of the three they recommend, but it's still not cheap.

One good way to do Vedge is to go during Happy Hour... plates are $4-6 and youll be able to try 4 or 5 things. I agree that V-Street is also great and we usually end up there btw the two. Id also make sure to get some Dotties Donuts!
