whoah!!!!! hip city veg is on levelup!!!! (i wish i would have known before i spent $17 there. oops.)

if you hadn't joined levelup yet, click here, and we'll both get $5 credit to use anywhere. they're a cardless/cashless payment system that rewards you for dining/shopping at any place that accepts it. https://www.thelevelup.com/join/43950 (i'm such a shill) there's also a $2 credit attached to hip city veg, so you have an automatic $7 credit there. (and then when you reach $100, you'll get another $10 to use there.) and you don't even need a smartphone, you can print out your code to keep in your wallet instead.

(it's also accepted at blackbird, a full plate, atiya ola's, basic 4, cedar's, circles, fuel, green aisle grocery, home slice (honeygrow? gracia, did i hear you talk about that place?) jar bar, little baby's, sweet freedom, the pop shop, yard's brewing, and a whole lot of other places.)

It wasn't working when we went. They are on levelup, but there was technical difficulty with it. If it's not up and running by now I'm sure it will be soon. And I'm sure Lolli can verify and give more info on this.

Call! The little machine was broken or something to that effect. And I don't think you can use it if the machine isn't working yet.

nah. we're going whether it's working or not. :-) (it's funny, cause the last time i tried to use it at casona, it wasn't working either.) i've only ever used it 3 times in the past 1.5 years. i just keep forgetting to use it.

we had the ziggy burger and the buffalo bella. both quite tasty, but the burger was a bit too big, and there wasn't really enough tempeh. that burger would be great for an omni that likes a little gristle in their burger. (not a dig, just an observation) i probably wouldn't get it again though. the ranch sammy was so much better. and it's easy to make a burger at home for a fraction of the cost.

and the buffalo bella was really great. i only wish they had smaller cuts of the portobello (the mr. also wished for that), therefore a higher breading ratio. but i'm sure that'd be more labor intensive/cost prohibitive. all of the flavors really went together so well.

as for the fries, i had no idea that the sauce was made with cilantro!! i didn't hate it! (in fact, i couldn't taste the soap at all. i wonder if they use dried cilantro - or if they use fresh, if they cook it a bit beforehand.)

I've been wanting to try the buffalo bella sandwich but I am a staunch celery hater and was deterred by the celery slaw. Is the slaw very heavy on the celery?

i couldn't really taste the celery. all i could taste was deliciousness. (you can always ask for it on the side.)

I was in Philly over the weekend and went here for lunch. Oh! my gosh. I am dreaming of their chicken ranch sandwich. It was about a gazillion times better than any chicken-style sandwich i've ever had, and a doublegazillion times better than any real chicken sandwich i've had. It is served on a soft whole grain bun, which i love. I even liked the pickles on it and i normally do not enjoy pickles on sandwiches. I had it with a chocolate five dollar shake that was well worth the five dollars.
I will be going here every time i make it to Philly.

lolli posted a craigslist ad for cooks at the rittenhouse location. i wonder if the current cooks are going to be heading over to the new location.

I go to Philly from time to time (usually to go to the dental school ahahah great feelings about Philly) and I went there earlier this year and got the Hip City Ranch, usually not something I would get. It was really good, although a little pricey. I don't like sweet potatoes either, so won't get those, but I did not realize they had milkshakes! (I get a bit overwhelmed in new locations).

Do you sometimes still meet? I would love to meet, I don't know many vegans IRL at all :P Anyway, I'll be back in the states around mid-July, if anyone is interested, tell me :)
