A few weeks ago, we told you guys VegFest, the free festival celebrating all things vegetarian, would be making its way back to Philly June 6th (Sadly, the same day as Be Well Philly Boot Camp, our day-long fitness fest — but no worries, you can go after you get your sweat on!). And when we announced that the festival would be back for a second year, the location of the 2015 festival was supposed to be Clark Park, but looks like there’s been a change of plans.

Tiffin is urging you to kick the Taco Tuesday habit and get on board with Tiffin Tuesdays. All eight Tiffin locations are offering their vegetarian entrees for just $8. And that counts for eat-in, takeout and delivery (Just use the code VeggieTues for you delivery discount).

The $8 entrees (normally $12) include the immensely popular saag paneer, as well as the tasty malai kofta, vegetable dumplings cooked in a creamy cashew nut sauce; and the Southern Indian vegetable korma.

Tiffins are located in and around the Philadelphia area including two new New Jersey locations.

Rittenhouse’s newest restaurant addition, Farmer’s Keep, is kind of like the fast, casual restaurant version of a Whole Foods salad bar: The menu offerings are all over the place (On my plate, I had scoops of eggplant caponata, soy rice noodles, quinoa tabbouleh, Greek salad with tofu, and much more), they aim to use local and seasonal ingredients, and you are charged by the pound. And like Whole Foods, it’s easy to fork over way more money than you thought you would. To wit: I walked away with what was, I’ll admit, a pretty full plate, that weighed 1.8 pounds and cost me $20.  Read more »

I don’t know about you, but I love Tiffin — and our friends over at Foobooz do, too. And I (embarrassingly) order their Saag Paneer at least once a week. At least. So from now on, I’ll make sure to make Tuesdays my official Indian food day: The restaurant — which has eight locations throughout Philly, the suburbs and New Jersey — just announced that every Tuesday from here on out, all vegetarian entrees will cost a flat $8. Eeeeee!

Remember last spring, when we announced that the first-ever Philly VegFest was coming to Headhouse Square, and you guys freaked out? Well, prepare to go nuts again, because the second annual Philly VegFest is headed our way soon — June 6th (sadly, the same day as Be Well Philly Boot Camp. But the good news is, VegFest goes ’til 4 p.m., so you can go afterward!), to be exact — and it looks like it’s going to be even bigger and better than the first one.
