Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Aug. 2012)

As previously mentioned, Philadelphia has a lot of great restaurants, and I was excited to learn that one of the city's most popular eateries offers a separate vegetarian menu upon request.  Sampan by chef Michael Schulson serves pan-Asian cuisine (large and small plates) in a lively atmosphere.  I really enjoyed my meal, which is pictured below along with the menu.

Tofu tacos with avocado, cilantro, pickled shallot, and lots of sweet and sour sauce

Pad thai with tofu (this is the peanut-free, vegan version without egg)
