I am straight cheating and stretching my Philadelphia eating into a handful of posts. Vegan eating in Philadelphia was also the subject of one of my MoFo posts two years back. Yesterday, I wrote about eating seaweed in Philadelphia at a length longer than I had planned. It was a fixture Friday night in the city.
The real vegan fun came Saturday though. I ate at MiLah Vegetarian on South 16th St. and I was excited to see this:
Yep, it was the vegan brunch menu. No searching for issues or considering substitutions. Instead, I faced that rare dilemma: what should I choose to eat?
The food was great, and the coffee was lovely. Service was quick, but I will complain that it was a little brusque. Our server walked away as I was mid-sentence with my coffee order, so I had send him back for non-dairy creamer and he seemed annoyed about that. After he brought our food, he never checked back, so I had to flag him down for a refill.
I was once a server, and a terrible one at that, so I try to be kind and easy going as a patron. The restaurant was not crowded though, and it seemed like he wanted as little to do with us as possible. It wouldn't keep me from going back ever again, but I'll probably try other places on my next visit instead of running right there. I would recommend the place to anyone, unless I knew they were antsy about good service.
