Respond to Review of Gumbo Ya Ya
Review: I drove to Lexington to drop a friend off half way. We meet his ride and decided to eat at Gumbo Ya Ya as a vegetarian friendly recommendation. Just to let you know they rotate their menu so be prepared. They did have two vegetarian dishes one spicier than the other. I ordered the mushroom and Spinach Etouffe the spicier of the two. It was really good over the thick white rice. I would have preferred a brown but it was still relatively good. Everything is pretty much made ahead of time. This is not gourmet dinning but simply good budget food. The restaurant had interesting art throughout and the staff was friendly. I'd avoid the praline desert as it was just pure sugar and a few nuts. The cookie was good though it too was a bit sugary. In any case I found this to be somewhat unique and of healthy options for the vegetarian dinner. I'd recommend it if you are in the mood for its style.
