Respond to Review of CLOSED: Juicy Jones - Cardenal
Review: My girlfriend and I have eaten at Juicy Jones maybe 6 to 8 times. Each time, we get different meals and try each others, so I've effectively eaten there twice as many times. I'm kind of amazed to see the reviews in which people claim the food (and for that matter the decor) are terrible, but I'm equally amazed at those people who site this as one of the best vegan restaurants in the world. My opinion - the fresh juice, smoothies and shakes are as good as you'll find anywhere. I particularly enjoy the shakes. I've had a few sandwiches - they're pretty good and the price can't be argued with. The Thali plate is always great - never been disappointed. The only possible con to the thali plate is that it isn't very spicy. The menu del dia - the soups are decent. The entrees are hit or miss. The deserts generally leave something to be desired. (for good vegan deserts in Barcelona I recommend Bioasis). Personally, I find the decor fun and cozy. It seems silly to me that people are offended by psychedelic decor in a vegan restaurant. There is only ever one waitress and she's almost always swamped with customers - so the service is slow even by Spanish standards. They speak both Spanish and English fluently. The biggest knock on the place is that they are often out of ingredients. In conclusion, Juicy Jones is a solid little vegan joint - nothing more and nothing less.
