Respond to Review of HipCityVeg - Rittenhouse
Review: I was in Philly for the weekend and was walking around looking for a veg restaurant. The first one I went to which was recommended strongly by a friend was closed. The second one I went to had finished their lunch service and had closed the kitchen early for the afternoon. So I just kept walking......and came upon Hip City! The counterperson recommended the Chicken Ranch sandwich and I wasn't disappointed. Very crispy on a nice bun with tomatoes, onion, lettuce and of course, ranch dressing. I wouldn't have believed it was a mock meat had I not known I was in a vegan restaurant. I would highly recommend it. In looking at the menu, I noted that there is a heavy reliance on mock meats done in comfort food style sandwiches which is okay in moderation. I wouldn't go in thinking I was going to be eating nuts and sprouts. This is very much a fast food style menu. I tasted their signature smoothie which was delicious and will return for one before I leave town. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lots of takeout traffic coming and going. Seating is limited. A great place for a quick bite.
