Respond to Review of Memphis Taproom
by Liam Wilson
Review: In the heart of a somewhat rapidly gentrifying area of Philadelphia, just a little further north than the Northern Liberties area lies the Memphis Taproom. A relatively modest corner bar/restaurant featuring some really great vegan options along side some truly tasty boutique-y beers served with a laid back swagger that's becoming a truly Philly signature. To start, the Fried Okra are a nice option other than the typical hummus or fries (they also serve Hefeweisen Hummus which is pretty amazing as well). My favorite entree, the Coconut Club, is downright addictive and keeps me up at night craving it when I'm far from home. Its made with young thai coconut carmelized to mimic bacon - of anywhere in the world, this is my favorite bacon mock-up simply because it tastes fresh, not dried out like cardboard. The weekend brunch usually has at least 2 or 3 vegan options, and some great hooegarden mimosas to wash it all down. Absolutely worth a visit.
