I like the idea of having posts regarding different restaurants so they can be discussed in further detail but it can be hard sorting through them, especially as more pages develop in the philly forum. I figured a sticky might be a good idea to keep them all in one place for people visiting the area/ect. Let me know if I missed anything or if there is a better way to go about grouping these.

Looks like you are missing Govinda's, Su Xing House (vegetarian), and Mi Lah in the Center City section. Although I guess technically Su Xing and Mi Lah are in Rittenhouse. Not sure how much you want to break out the city.

eta: Vegan Treats should be in the Outside the City section.

Yeah, i can break up "Center City" into actual areas if thats preferred.

Right now I don't think there are specific posts for Govinda's, Su Xing House, Vegan Treats, or Mi Lah. We can start them or I can add names of restaurants then as the post are made add the url.

I was about to sarcastically remark on how stereotypical it is for even vegans to think cheesesteaks first.

But then I clicked through to the thread. yyyeah.

{eta: good idea, eric}

I think Best House's tomato pie is better, it is right across from the Greenline Cafe on 42nd and Baltimore. They also have vegan garlic knots, just double-ask when/if you get them if they have cheese on them to be 100% positive.

Allegro's is also great, on Spruce Street. Both tomato pies come true Sicilian style, nice thick crust, really tasty crust actually, loaded with tomato sauce and tons of GARLIC.

Whoa. WHOA. That place has vegan garlic knots?! I walk by there almost every day and have never gone inside because it looks like it would be completely un-vegan.

Others in West Philly:

Saad's
Hummus
Lucky's has the best general tso's tofu ever
Desi Village
Vietnam Cafe
Gold Standard Cafe has some vegan options
Satellite Cafe

I haven't been to probably 85% of them. Clearly I need to go on a food safari across the city.

Oh my goodness! How can I forget Saads! BEST falafel and french fries! Well, I mean I think Mama's is better, but that is Israeli style which I am partial to. But Saads is reaaaalllyyy good.

I have probably been to 85% of them within my 7.5 years of living here, it's all about "adventuress" living, and also being a vegan foodie helps too. I would like a monthly meetup deal, that would be awesome!

P.S. This thread needs an Art Museum/Fairmount area vegan spots, there are a few gems up there like Mugshots and the Belgium Cafe!

Shall we start in January? Weekdays vs. weekends?

The only place that stands out in my mind that I havent been to yet is cantina dos segundos, although i've been to the south philly one before and wasnt too impressed. The faux ground beef got me sick once. :( but I am intrigued by the battered french toast.

That said, i'm open to suggestions!

I'll have to jump in on these every once in a while. But I won't be able to do every month. Timing and money is an issue for me. We rarely go out to eat. And we are getting ready to remodel our kitchen in January. So I will be tied up on nights and weekends for a while. And by wallet will be tied up as well!! But monthly meet-ups sound super exciting. Keep posting dates, I will get to one eventually.

I haven't been to most of the places mentioned either. I shy away from places that cook meat and only have a few vegan options. I like to suppose businesses that are meat free plus I feel like my food is much cleaner.
