Respond to Review of Merit Vegetarian Restaurant
Review: This place was wonderful from the moment we walked in! The staff was very nice and answered all of our questions! The pho is pretty good, but the Gourmet Vegetable Noodle (broth on the side) is sensational! Definitely try the Crepe and the Lotus Salad, they are unbelievably tasty! My non-vegetarian family adored the caramelized chicken, exclaiming that they couldn't believe how good fake chicken could be! Through and through, everything was wonderful! The desserts are from a local vegan bakery in Santa Cruz: Black China. Even if you don't have room, you will regret not ordering one of the desserts! The coffee is very strong, but that's how it should be. Don't forget to ask for soy milk. Almost everything is vegan, but be sure to specify! Although it may be out of the way for some people, it is worth the trip, possibly the best veg*n Vietnamese in the Bay Area! Be sure to go as close to "off times" as possible, they are apparently always busy, and busiest during weekend evenings!
