solid comfort food - Edit

My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our bowls. She had the winter purity bowl and I had the yoga dragon-both had great flavors, very satisfying and would definitely order again. We enjoyed it better than Fare Well, the all vegan restaurant down the street. The Thai pumpkin soup was excellent, but the vegan mozzarella was not good—avoid at all costs. Overall a solid meal.

Staff 23 Feb 2018 - Hi, sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the mozzarella. While we can’t please everyone I’m willing to bet something went wrong as they’re one of our most popular items and positivly commented on. Any chance we can give you a free order on your next visit?

Filling, Flavorful, and VEGAN! - Edit

I am so jealous of the hungry vegans of DC. They have free reign to visit Pow Pow anytime they wish! A local friend told me Pow Pow was a must-try on my recent visit to DC. I am a chronic over-orderer because I love to try everything on the menu. We started with Trolley Fries because my inner Irish demanded we do so. The staff informed us that the white cheese on the fries is vegan, house-made. SCORE!!

Next, we tried the Natalie Porkman, which is Sweet & Sour Pork with house-made Seitan. It was to die for!! Next up was Girl from Iwo Jima. I am stunned at how good the house-made vegan feta was!! They said the feta is also on the WuBanger (orange chicken), FYI. Vegan cheese is notoriously hard to pull off, but they have NAILED IT. Finally, we tasted the Hong Kong Phooey. It was perfect in every way. Pow Pow is a must for fellow vegans travelling to DC!

Pros: Vegan Chef, Incredible atmosphere, fast and casual

Cons: behind Trolley stop, typical DC parking sitation

Great for allergies and vegans! - Edit

With 8 menu items marked as vegan without needing to alter anything is great, plus monthly vegan specials so I'm. It eating the same thing over and over.

Everything is clearly marked so I don't even have to ask or just *hope* that someone remembers to exclude meat or dairy is a huge plus for me.

The seitan is made in house too.

Pros: Excellent fresh food, Labeled for allergies and dietary restrictions , Monthly vegan specials

Cons: Fast casual wait times can be 15minutes, Have to park on side street or pay for parking
