We’re not sure if naming things by their physical attributes is or ever has been a thing, but we’re into it. From now on, we’re calling dachshunds oblong terriers and referring to beds as soft rectangular prisms. Triangle Tavern, right off East Passyunk in South Philly, also has a name that describes exactly what it is: a triangle-shaped tavern. And in a lot of ways, it’s similar to other bars in the area - it has a long draft list and a low-key feel that makes it a good place to grab a weeknight beer with an old friend. But unlike other taverns in the area, this one has really good bar food, like homemade pasta, polenta fries, and a ton of vegan options if meat isn’t your thing.
