Weird General Tso's.
I tried this general tso's, and it was weird. The sauce was all brown and not orangish, like I'm used to, and it wasn't spicy. It smelled more like soy than anything. The chicken was deep fried like you'd get with sweet and sour chicken, some was really breaded in about a centimeter of breading.
On the bright side, the broccoli was good and they served it with brown rice.
But I'll stick with the General Tso's tofu at King Palace Chinese in the Andorra Shopping Center for my fix.
Chinatown's humble restaurant with a grandiose name serves vegan delights fit for a king..
Long known as a haven by vegetarians, this Chinatown restaurant has been serving kosher and vegan delights with amazing consistency since 1994. The narrow little space is serene and simple with pictures of pandas and storks on the walls, silk flowers and cantaloupe-colored linens on the tables. The expansive menu features dim sum, soups, imitation pork, chicken, seafood and beef entrees, plus vegetable dishes and fried rice.
delicious!. I often find that myself disappointed by vegan restaurants, though they have good ratings (I sometimes think vegans are just so thrilled to have a place to eat that they're not particular the food be good!). This place restored my faith in food! I have been there twice--once with two omnivores--and have always been delighted. Of the five or six dishes I've tried, I remember thinking one was just okay (don't remember which dish) but everything else was wonderful! The two omnivores loved the food, and one of them said it was the best Chinese food they've ever had in America (the other one said it was the third best). Service is good, waiters are polite and friendly, and don't try to rush you. The ambiance isn't fancy, but has charm. I beleive it was rated one of the top healthy eating spots in Philly recently as well.
Just give it a try and you will love it!!. I was introduced to the Kingdom years ago and I was immediatly addicted. I'll be honest that I was never a big fan of Vegan cooking. But after one visit to the Kingdom...my outlook changed! I live in Colorado now but everytime I come back to Philadelphia I go to the Kingdom. The food is the BEST I've ever tasted. My favorite dish is the Walnut Shrimp. The wonton soup is to die for. The place is very laid back and the service is wonderful. Everyone that works there is extremely polite and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend the Kingdom to everyone! Especially those who are afraid of Vegan cooking.
KOV rocks. Hands down, the best Chinese vegetarian food (and possibly best Americanized-Chinese food, vege or not) in the city. The mock chicken dishes are my faves, especially that spicy General Tso's chicken. Try the lychee duck or one of the fish dishes. They're very creative. The staff are friendly, and the prices are very reasonable. It's not 100% authentic Chinese, but so delicious you won't care.
Fun and Fabulous.
Whether you are a strict vegetarian or just an adventurous diner, this is a great place. Fresh tasting Asian foods low on grease and high on flavor. I love going here with a group of friends and doing the All-You-Can-Eat-Dim-Sum. At $10 a person, it's a major bargain, and you will definitely not go home hungry! Spring rolls, sesame noodles, multiple kinds of dumplings, scallion pancakes, mock-pork buns, friend bananas...it's all good and you can feel good about what you're eating, too.
It's maybe not the most impressive-looking place, but the food is the reason to come here, not the atmosphere.
Good Vegetarian. The food was great the service was odd. It was 2 kids serving. It is a BYO and the friendly 14 year-old waiter gave us a corkscrew. The food came out all at once but the food and the quirkiness was fun. I'll defiantly be back!
A Vegan paradise in Philly!.
OK,... to put it simply,...THIS PLACE ROCKS!! There are several Veggie only Chinese places in Philadelphia's Chinatown, but none compare to The Kingdom of Vegetarians. For those with short attention spans like me, I will "bullet" the reasons why it rocks
1.) The food is awesome and all Vegan
2.) The prices are cheap
3.) Lunch specials 7 days a week
4.) Friendly service
5.) you NEVER go away hungry. The portions are gigantic
6.) two words,... Sesame 'Chicken'
7.) Because I said so!
If I wasn't the poor Elementary School teacher that I am, I would eat here everyday.
