tasty discoveries

eating vegan in philadelphia has gotten a lot easier lately. with pure fare and vedge restaurants just recently opening i have been really loving all the tasty options. this past week i had the amazing experience of trying the veggie burger at hip city vedge!! it was amazing!! i went with some friends during my lunch break, we grabbed our burgers and headed over to rittenhouse square for lunch in the park. i can't wait to get another and even try their crispy chicken sandwich:) 

to my surprise i got this vegan treat at the famous franklin fountain ice cream parlor the other day. i stopped in with a friend and was surprised when i saw 3 dairy free ice creams on the menu. after talking to the nice people that worked there i found out they had lots vegan candies and toppings as well. I ended up getting the mint chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate syrup! such a great surprise!

i just wanted to share, since vegan foods in philadelphia had been urban legends in the past.
