It's VeganMoFo! What's VeganMoFo? Find out at http://www.veganmofo.com
Last night I met up with my friends Amy and Ronald, who I know from the Post Punk Kitchen message boards. Both are visiting from overseas, so it was great to get to hang out with them in person! I've met both of them before, but not in a long while. We had dinner at New Harmony, a Kosher Chinese restaurant in Philadelphia with an all-vegan menu. New Harmony's specialty is the "all-you-can-eat dim sum". They have a menu of options, so you can select your favorites, but I usually just tell the server to "bring us whatever's good" and let them work their magic.
We each started with a bowl of wonton soup.
Then the dim sum fest began!
vegetable pancakes! These are fried and served with a mayonaissey sauce.
spring rolls and scallion pancakes!
stir-fry! tofu, broccoli, bok choy, carrots, and zucchini in a gingery-garlicky sauce!
taro cakes! Taro is a sticky root vegetable and it's one of my absolute favorite treats.
bao! These are doughy dumplings stuffed with vegan pork.
dumplings! I don't remember what was in them, but it was tasty.
There was also another dish of little round dumplings in assorted colors and configurations, but I seem to have not taken a photo of it.
dessert! The fried coconut triangles are simply to die for!!!
