Respond to Review of New Harmony
Review: The kitchen gods have blessed New Harmony! We eat here several times a week, and we are never bored. The menu is amazingly extensive - everything you've always wanted to be vegan in a Chinese restaurant, and much, much more! The chef is quite inventive, and is constantly coming up with new dishes-he studied in Hong Kong, and although he is a master at what he does, he is quite willing to accomodate special requests. Do listen for suggestions when you are ordering-you won't be disappointed-but we've had dishes specially prepared, always graciously. For example-the "duck" can be prepared baked instead of fried! The hot and sour soup is a classic-rich and spicy, but the chicken ginseng is superb, complex and quite unique. However, don't skip over dishes that may seem simple-for example tofu and spinach is wonderful-perfectly garlicky, with the greens cooked to perfection-and as always-generously portioned. If you have room for dessert, don't miss the selections from Vegan Treats-they're delivered fresh (we've seen the goddess baker herself!), and they are the pride of the Philly vegan community-none better! Speaking of community, the ownership here should be especially proud of their efforts in building the Philly vegan scene-parties and other events can be accomodated in their downstairs room, and their bulletin boards are great for checking out area happenings.
