“Philly restaurants celebrating vegetables in all of their various forms. Whether you’re looking for a menu that’s exclusively vegan or not.
Whether you’re cutting back on meat after watching a devastating Polish film about a runaway donkey or you genuinely can’t remember the last time you came into contact with a cheeseburger, there are about 200 reasons why you might be eating more vegetables and fewer animal-based products right now.
Fortunately, vegan options abound. We’ve corralled all the Philly restaurants best celebrating the humble vegetable in all of its various forms. Whenever you see a 🌱 next to a restaurant’s name below, that business offers an entirely vegan menu. Count on the other places in this guide to offer vegan-friendly menus. That way, everyone in your group — regardless of dietary needs — can find something excellent to eat.
Algorithm began as a food truck serving vegan cheesesteaks, fried nuggets, and bread pudding (which we still daydream about). Now the business has their own brick-and-mortar restaurant in Queen Village, which allows them to execute dishes like linguine in a fennel and garlic sauce or tomato tartare. The truck still operates regularly at breweries and parks, in case that approach to Algorithm is more convenient for you than heading to QV.
📍: 705 East Passyunk Avenue, Queen Village.
A dive on South Street with bumper-car seating, live shows upstairs, and temporary tattoos available for the taking is not necessarily the sort of setting you’d assume would work for a full meal. That’s where you’re wrong. The magic of Tattooed Moms is that it can be exactly what you want it to be, no matter the circumstances. About half of the (very good) food here is vegan, including a pickle-brined fried “chick’n” sandwich that will instantly convert you into a T-Moms groupie. Keep an eye on their Instagram for info on future pop-up collaborations, often featuring exciting vegan options.
📍: 530 South Street, Queen Village.
