Miss Rachel's Pantry

Miss Rachel's Pantry on Passyunk Ave is tucked away in South Philadelphia. It's probably the best vegan restaurant in the city. You can't miss it with its bright yellow awning and flower boxes out front.

When you go in, directly to your left is a green shag rug and a beautiful hard wood communal table that seats 12. The kitchen is downstairs where Rachel cooks her tasty meals. They are open for dinner once a week, otherwise she offers catering and currently working with Real Food Works(new company in area offering fresh delivered meals)

My family and I went there for dinner about 2 weeks ago to celebrate my little sister leaving to study abroad in New Zealand. She is vegan so this was only appropriate and the rest of us are just adventurous.

For that night's meals we had a choice of two from a four course dinner.
My night consisted of: 
1. Open-face polenta and trumpet mushroom "taco"
2. Coconut-lime soup with shiitake mushrooms, curry spice and hearts of palm
3. The pot-less pot pie with mushrooms, root veggies, seitan "sausage" gravy, and flaky biscuits
4. (Dessert) Chocolate cashew napoleon

 Open-Face Polenta and Trumpet Mushroom 'Taco'


 The curry sauce had a perfect spiciness to it. Shiitake mushrooms were cooked perfect.

The Pot-Less Pot Pie was filling. Real comfort dish with the root vegetables and gravy


You could never tell the difference that this was vegan. The layers were flaky and the chocolate was super rich =:)

At the end of the meal Rachel came up and chatted with the group. Super nice and really good.
