I decided to try the new Susana Foo restaurant a few weeks ago. I really liked the atmosphere. Small tables and a coat check were available. I had the veggie rolls for two and the Kung Pao Chicken. Everything was delicious. I will go again.

Great find! I've made my away around Chinatown in Philly and though I've found great options - haven't really experienced the same level of Asian-fusion this side of Broad! SUGA is in the heart of Rittenhouse, so it'll be hard parking wise if you're driving in. I had to park south and take the walk up (which actually wasn't a big deal since it was a nice evening weather wise.) I would advise to prepare for parking if you're driving in and have made reservations. Inside it's modern, but subdued. There's a bar that meets you on the right walking in, and there's small tables to the left. When I arrived, the hostess led me up a small set of stairs and towards the back where my party had been seated. From the drink menu, I ordered their ginger lotus drink - delicious. I liked how smooth it went down without leaving a alcohol after taste. For starters, we had the options of vegetarian dumplings, a charcuterie board of nuts, beets, etc., and small goat cheese won tons. Each item was great. I really enjoyed the goat cheese won tons, and the small bites were a great way to coat the stomach. I enjoy it when the veggie friendly options are plentiful. For my entree, I chose the charred cauliflower and ordered the side of charred brussel sprouts - SO good! The cauliflower was tender and easy to cut down to bite sized pieces. The brussel sprouts were a nice accompaniment - they were well bloomed, so they took on the seasonings well. The charred veggies each had a sweet and sour sauce to them - which really paired well with the charred bits. For dessert, I ordered the coconut tapioca with mango sorbet. Really refreshing and I love the texture differences that occur when spooning together the tapioca and the sorbet. The service was really pleasant. They had a few servers always ready to help and our water glasses stayed full (and us hydrated haha.) Definitely looking forward to my next trip back!
