Phantastic Philly Phood!
As I mentioned, I had the grand pleasure of spending my birthday in Philadelphia this year. Philly is such a vegan-friendly town and I had a hard time narrowing down the list of restaurants I wanted to try, but there’s only so much I can actually eat in one 24 hour period! I made some damn fine choices though, and thoroughly enjoyed my eating experiences and spending time with friends. My favorite for today is something every town should have: A vegan pizzeria that does pizza by the slice, sandwiches, and salads, all served up in a super-casual environment ala the omnivorous pizza joints of my past.
Welcome to Blackbird Pizzeria, people! If you’re anywhere near Philly, it’s a must try. The slices are huge, have a perfectly crispy crust, and fresh toppings with Daiya cheese. My “fungi” slice above was so tasty, what with its mushrooms, truffle oil, garlic, and thyme. I loved it! Better still? They serve Vegan Treats cupcakes, whoopie pies, and more. Yum!
On Thursday, I’ll tell you all about my incredible birthday dinner. Until then, I’m looking forward to finding more new faves in the NYC area, and hope you’re finding faves wherever you are.
