Respond to Review of Garibolo

Review: first of all, this vegetarian restaurant uses a lot of egg and dairy. vegans should be very careful and communicate clearly with their waitress and the kitchen. for example, my salad starter came with chunks of egg whites. then again, when i explained that i didn't eat egg they were able to give me a different, egg-free salad, which was good. but! that salad featured canned peaches and pineapple. i was not impressed. for the second course, i chose the garlic soup (the only vegan option), which was probably the best dish i had there. pretty heavy, as is typical for basque/spanish cuisine, but tasty. my 'main' consisted of overcooked string beans (possibly canned or frozen) served over a potato puree. again, very heavy food and not very inspired. the only vegan dessert they had was fresh strawberries in orange juice. on a whole, i was not very impressed and probably would not go back, but then again it's pretty much the only veg gig open for lunch on the weekends in bilbao. this doesn't leave the traveling vegan with much choice. this may also explain why the place was packed, even though the food is so mediocre.
