New Harmony Vegan Chinese Food

I was in Philly today with my dad and we stopped off at New Harmony for vegan Chinese lunch (thanks to Kate at Rabbit Food for the recommendation) . We didn't realize that the portions would be huge so we ordered two things. First was the fried dim sum. I'm not sure my memory is 100% on what was included but I remember 2 spring rolls, 2 breaded shrimp things, 6 pieces of sesame chicken, 2 beef things, a scallion pancake, two taro cakes, and two turnip cakes. Neither of us really like the shrimp (but I never liked seafood and neither of us has ever had real shrimp) but the rest was good. The taro/turnip cakes were a little bland but good with some sauce (we got ginger soy sauce, duck sauce, and sweet and sour sauce).

Then we had a lunch special of General Tso's chicken with wonton soup and brown rice. It was really good and a little spicy. The soup was a little salty for my taste but was also pretty yummy. Overall it was a great experience with lots of leftovers and I would definitely go again. I was going to take leftovers for lunch tomorrow but my family devoured them, I guess I'm left to my own devices to make lunch.

My favorite vegan Chinese is still Veggie Heaven in Parsippany, NJ but New Harmony was pretty close.

Sounds like you had a great time, and left overs are always amazing. I am a frequent diner at Veggie Heaven, it's the only veggie place that I know of in NJ.
