Nicole Marquis is fulfilling the demand for mainstream vegan fast food
with Hip City Veg in Rittenhouse. Steering clear
of vegan preachitude, Marquis' aim is to provide a "100 percent
plant-based" experience "familiar to meat eaters." Her chef, Lauren
Hooks, is knocking out a menu with populist appeal ó think the "Ziggy"
burger, a meatless riff on the Big Mac, and a crispy "chick'n" sandwich.
There are also salads, sides and smoothies, all built with local
seasonal ingredients. Open daily, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
- Average entree under $10
- Wheelchair accessible
- Takeout menu
