For months I had been reading many Facebook updates, eagerly anticipating Philly Veg Fest, and this past Saturday was finally the day of the event. An entire block full of vegan food, what could be better than that? Lauren had a lot of school work to complete on Friday, so we decided Saturday's Veg Fest would be the perfect Best Friend "Friday" activity.
I purposefully came with a hungry, empty stomach. I didn't care how much I ate that day; I wanted to try everything! When we arrived, Lauren and I decided to walk around and scope out all of the booths before selecting what we wanted to eat first. We missed the first two hours of the event, so I know several of the booths ran out of food by the time we got there, so obviously those were out of the question. But, one of the first things we did stumble upon was Whole Foods' booth. They were handing out free samples of miniature pea protein pecan cookies. They were delicious, and if they were any indication of what else was in store, I knew we were in for plenty of amazing vegan treats. We walked by several different booths selling Indian food that looked really good, but I wanted to see all of my options first. We came across Blackbird Pizzeria and Dottie's Donuts, both excellent options. But because we've tried both of them numerous times before, we wanted to use this Veg Fest as an opportunity to see what other vegan foods Philadelphia had to offer. Ultimately, we jumped at the chance to try Kung Fu Hoagies.
Lauren and I had just completed an 18 mile long run that morning, so this was the perfect post-run activity. Quality best friend time and a plethora of vegan food! Seriously, nothing beats that!
