Discovering Snap Kitchen in Philadelphia was definitely the highlight of my trip to the historic city. Snap Kitchen is an Austin, TX export whose first foray into the east cost is Philly, with (hopefully) more locations coming soon to the mid-Atlantic (namely D.C. and/or Baltimore).
The concept is simple and truly genius, because Snap Kitchen is a perfect merging of a supermarket and and a restaurant, promising top quality fare that is healthy, affordable, and convenient. Each store is stocked with single portioned, premade meals coving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Diners can choose to enjoy the fare there, using the store’s microwave, or take it to any destination for a grab-n-go meal.
Most of the dishes are gluten-free, with many labeled as paleo, dairy-free, or vegan, to help people find fare perfect from them. From meat eaters to plants-only foodies, there’s something for everyone at Snap Kitchen, and this review delves into the lunch and dinner entrees I tried. For my breakfast review, click here.

For microwave food, Snap Kitchen definitely defied my expectations. While the food is pricy, it is perfect for single-hood, as it saves me from cooking, cleaning, and having too many leftovers that ultimately go bad. Residents can enjoy the local convenience, but tourists too can benefit from Snap Kitchen, because the meals are minifridge worthy and need only a microwave to come back to life.
