Dining Out: Vedge

Over the weekend, we went to visit a close friend. We had a nice, relaxing day visiting, taking a bike ride, & heading into Philly to dine at Vedge. Vedge is a highly renowned vegan restaurant that we've been wanting to try. It took awhile to find a Sat. night reservation, because it's a popular restaurant.

The chefs take vegetables & make them appeal to vegans, vegetarians, omnivores & carnivores alike. After dining there, I have to agree. We were very impressed with the various preparations of our food. All without any animal foods!

The menu is a little intimidating, so we did ask the waiter a lot of questions. He was very informative & didn't seem to mind at all. The atmosphere was relaxed & comfortable, but yet special, so I think it's a great place to go for either a fun night out or to celebrate. We left feeling very well fed, but not stuffed like I sometimes do after eating out. I'd love to go back in the fall, because they have a side menu that highlights seasonal veggies.
