This is a hidden Vegan Gem in PA. My husband and I are from NYC and went to the Poconos and couldn't find a vegan spot. Thank God for Google and we found Umami Gorilla ???. Everything was so delish and fresh. Vegan burger, bacon mac n cheese and fried chicken parm bites was AMAZING!!!... The owners were very friendly and welcoming.
I am currently writing this review while eating and let me tell you how AMAZING THIS FOOD IS!!!!!!! The chef is beyond TALENTED how he makes everything from scratch and it tastes like HEAVEN!!!!! I wish I could give this place 10 stars!!!!! I can?t even fully describe how FLAVORFUL EVERYTHING IS! Omggggg definitely worth it!!!! Update: THE PINEAPPLE CHEESECAKE IS THE ABSOLUTELY BOMB!!!!!!!!!!
Absolutely the best and most delicious Vegan comfort food in town, and in a pretty big radius on the map. They have eat-in and take out specials all the time. Very nice and polite service also. A+ all day.
I'm not vegan but this food is delicious. I will recommend to all my other meat eater friends. I didn't know vegan food could be so tasty! I don't know what they put in the potato salad but it is delicious.
I was looking for a vegan spot to eat at and came across this spot. I called in my order of spicy buffalo ceasar wrap, peanut butter milkshake and vegan mac and cheese. When I arrived I parked on the street nearby. I walked into a homely feel restaurant. I spoke to the owner for a bit and he was cool and down to earth. My food came to about $19 and I paid and left. When I got to my room I dug in. The peanut butter milkshake was tasty and different. The wrap was just ok and the mac was so good. This place hit the spot and I would return.
A place to go out of the way for. Also, the best fried chik?n I?ve tried. This place is a godsend for home style American food. It?s owned by a chef and his mother, where they make everything from scratch. I?m talking meats, cheese, even the milkshake ice cream base is made from scratch. The food is heavenly, and the ambiance is extremely cozy. We had the KFC platter, chef special burger, and 3 sides- Mac and cheese, chilli, and cole slaw. Portions were large as well, we now have lunch for tomorrow. Come and support an incredible small business- the owners are passionate and friendly.
Food was incredibly flavorful. I got the Buffalo chicken cheesesteak with a side of Mac n cheese and I was in heaven. So much food that I had the rest for dinner later and it was just as good
I hadn?t been home to WB in almost 6 years and was happy to see some good vegan food that?s almost exclusively made in house. Hands down the best vegan mac and cheese I?ve ever had. The owners are super friendly. Prices are great for how much food you get. Will definitely be coming back next time I?m in town.
