|Rangoon in Philly. Get the Basil Tofu. Just do it.|
Between Vegan Mofo and working on the photo shoots and recipe testing for the new pie cookbook, I've been eating just about all of my meals at home. But I recently enjoyed a few bites out at Rangoon, and caught up with my dear friend [and fierce paddle boarded and hula-hooper] Stacey. Rangoon features lovely Burmese food with a whole slew of vegan options. Just as you'd imagine because of its location at the crossroads of China, India and Thailand, Burmese food is incredibly complex, influenced by a plethora of ingredients and flavors… think curries, flatbreads, tofu, and tons of veggies, all delicately or aggressively spiced, depending on the dish. The waiters are very sweet and helpful, but it's still prudent to ask if ingredients like fish sauce or eggs are used in your dishes.
