When in New York, see the Statue of Liberty. When in Philly, go eat at Kingdom of Vegetarians.
I am, as my many followers and fans know, an unapologetic omnivore, and I have no dilemmas about that. So while certain contributors to this website had praised Kingdom of Vegetarians into the sky, I didn’t expect their dim sum to be that outstanding. Good, sure, but come on… Kingdom of Vegetarians? Where’s the pork?
Well, tie me down and call me Betty, but just this one time I was wrong! Kingdom of Vegetarians isn’t just good, it’s great. Fantastic even. Had I not known better I would have thought there was meat in there. The dumplings? Out of this world.
To illustrate how much I liked the place, let’s just put it this way: The next day I insisted on going back to the Kingdom for lunch. And it was, again, fantastic. The best General Tso’s Chicken I’ve ever had, and it didn’t even have chicken in it. How’s that for irony?
Going back to Philly? Actually, yes, I think so.
