If you're looking for a good vegan option in Rittenhouse, you can't miss with Hip City Veg. The Buffalo Bella is a delicious sandwich and the sweet potato fries are not to be missed. Interesting flavors that come together to create a special meal - and the value is excellent.

My husband and I have been wantng to try this place since we heard it was opening. We finally had the chance over this past weekend. I was surprised by how small the place was and how crowded it was for 3:00 on a Saturday. But, we were lucky enough to grab a seat to enjoy our awesome sandwiches (cheesesteak and buffalo portabello with sweet potato fries). I was not disappointed and can't wait to go back to try something different. This time we'll plan to get our food to go!

This is a tiny place that is perfect for take-out .

My non-vegan dining partner and I ordered the Udon Noodle Salad, Jerk Caesar Salad, Classic Veg Burger, and Fajita Wrap.

The Udon Noodle Salad was very, very tasty, although I would ask for dressing on the side next time because I think there was too much on there. The Jerk Caesar was very good - I was surprised at how spicy the chick'n was. The Fajita Wrap was our favorite - great combination of flavors and filling and delicious. The Classic Veg Burger was tasty with the toppings, but honestly looked/tasted like a Boca burger so I'm not sure I would ever order it again, lest it was indeed something I could have bought in the frozen food aisle of the supermarket.

Because our order took a little longer than expected, the girl at the cash register threw in a complimentary bag of chocolate chip cookies which were really delicious. They reminded me of the Pillsbury chocolate chip cookies you can make with those tubes of refrigerated dough; it's been over 15 years since I had one of those and eating these HipCityVeg cookies was a nostalgic, mouth-watering experience.

I really would give the place 4.5 stars if that was possible, again deducting only 1/2 a star because of the Classic Veg Burger.

Definitely a must-try!

WOW! Near Rittenhouse Square, the lines are out the door around lunch time. Only a few tables, so if the weather's nice, take your sandwich and sit in the park.

The 'Classic' vege burger is outstanding (in a unique pleated wrapper that catches any toppings that fall!) and the sweet potato fries are delicious! The Arugula Taco Salad is also filling and tasty. Here's a link for their menu: http://hipcityveg.com/menu/

So far, everything I've tasted has been top rate. Best bet during lunch rush is to call ahead with your order and it'll be ready to pick up when you walk in. Great addition to the lunch spots around Rittenhouse Square!
