Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pure Luck
Review: A friend and I found this place on HappyCow and came here for lunch in October 2007. From the outside, the building looks a bit strange and uneasy because of the metal bars on all the windows. But that's due to the neighborhood circumstance... Inside was another story - small and quaint with easy going vibes from a friendly staff staff. Most of the customers were hipsters maybe in their 20s-30s. The menu was interesting with a couple dozen choices all together. Jackfruit is used as the "meat" in the tacos and a pulled "pork" sandwich. We tried the tacos with the jackfruit carnitas, the spring rolls, and sweet potato fries. Tacos were yummy, and the jackfruit was tasty and easy to chew (unlike TVP that most veggie restaurants use as imitation meat). The sweet potato fries were also tasty but very filling. The spring rolls had nice flavor but the lavash wrap gave it a slightly bitter taste (I wonder if they could use a different wrapper). And the house lemonade was excellent. All in all, we were satified with the food and service. Looking forward to returning for a BBQ sandwich with jackfruit.
