Respond to Review of New Harmony
by squirrelgirl

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.

I am somewhat of a germaphobe. My family has been to New Harmony several times a year over the past 5 years - I have NEVER found anything, that should'nt be, in my food. NEVER felt sick or gastrointestinally upset after a meal there! More than I can say for many other restaurants I've been to "vegan" or otherwise! Hey "Worm Man"! what makes you think Ming and his staff are unintelligent? Bet they speak more languages than you do! I happen to be setting up a fundraising dinner for May there right now, and I can't wait until our next visit there!
