Vedge - LOVE IT
Posted on 07 / 13 / 2012
Let me preface this with, I generally don't use emoticons or hearts in my reviews (there would be some here if HC allowed me to submit them), but I'm so head-over-heels for Vedge that I can't help it! I only ate there two times during my Philly visit, but two times was not nearly enough! Be prepared for some flavor/sensory overload during your visit, you won't be disappointed!
So let me run through what we ordered:
The Bite Board, which comes with olives, lupini beans, house made pickles, white bean sauerkraut puree - the white bean sauerkraut puree was to die for, and the lupine beans were pretty great too!!!
Salt roasted gold beets, avocado, smoked tofu, rye, capers, creamy cucumber - HOLY MOLY! This was my favorite plate, so full of flavor! The ingredients were very fresh too.
Grilled seitan, black lentils, grilled leeks, smoked romesco - This was pretty amazing, but my bf really liked this more than me. We both thought the grilled seitan was genius!
Crispy cauliflower with kimchee cream, black vinegar - I seriously loved this side. The sauce was so full of flavor.
Strawberry-sorrel bread pudding with saffron ice cream and rhubarb nectar - I would die a thousand times to eat this dessert again!!! I can't even express how AMAZING it was! Superb!
Cheesecake with lavender-lemon butter cream and toasted pistachio - also pretty great, but the bread pudding took my heart.
The drinks, such as the sangria, were OK. But the food certainly made up for them!
