Nan Tonight

My SO and I thinking about trying Nan tonight for the first time. Any dishes we shouldn't miss?

As you know I am a vegetarian.

Excited to try it!

I just looked at the menu and didn't see anything vegetarian. Perhaps we should go somewhere else?

We NEVER venture into West Philadelphia so I can use some advice.
Not expensive please!

  1. I absolutely love Nan, but I do think you will have some trouble finding something vegetarian. They have very nice salads, but I do not think that can constitute a meal. It may be possible to ask for pad thai without shrimp, but .....

    How about the pho cafe (42nd and spruce)? white dog? Zocalo?

    1. I'm not a fan of white dog in general, and it also is more than we want to spend tonight.

      Let me look into Pho Cafe and Zocalo.

      1. I don't see anything about Pho Cafe on chowhound...

        Zocalo sounds good, but it seems a little pricey.

        Aren't there a bunch of intersting ethnic restaurants in West Philly? Perhaps something I can't get in CC?

        1. How about Ethiopian? Good for vegetarians and cheap. Check out Abyssinia.

          1. I've only been to Pho Cafe once, and was terribly disappointed. Our first try was takeout, so we're going to give it another try before deciding.

            For Ethiopian you might also check out Dahlak.
