Respond to Review of New Harmony
by Jamie Roberts
Review: Ming started Harmony, New Harmony's precursor in 1989, long before all other veg restaurants cropped up in Philly. His success and devotion to excellence inspired others. His contribution was recognized in an article about veg restaurants in Philly in this month's VegNews magazine and I have met people who have come from as far as New York to enjoy his food (they're big fans of the all-you-can-eat buffet offered Sunday evenings). His dim sum is the best vegan fare of its kind you'll find - cha siu bao that tastes exactly like real pork buns, for instance. Those who avoid seafood for ethical reasons - or who are allergic to shellfish can delight in the delicious walnut shrimp, which looks and tastes like the real thing. There are even offerings for thanksgiving. It's a great restaurant run by a truly kind and generous man.
