Respond to Review of Cantina Mexicana Chile Grande
Review: We arrived at the restaurant expecting to have a dinner of diluted, quasi-Mexican food. Instead we found each item to be delicious and reasonably authentic. The overriding theme of the restaurant is that although it's not solely (or necessarily primarily) a vegetarian restaurant, any item can be made vegetarian. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the restaurant is that unlike most Mexican food, the dishes we ordered were not greasy and we did not feel stuffed at the end of dinner. I had a great quesadilla as an appetizer and enchiladas for dinner (which had unusual ingredients inside, such as grated carrots and bean sprouts, but they worked surprisingly well). My husband had a vegetarian burger (made of beans). At the end of dinner, they provided a complimentary juice and tequila. This is a great find in an unlikely place (and much needed in a city without many vegetarian options). True, it's not a pure vegetarian restaurant but probably the most that can be asked for in Granada is vegetarian friendly (which most restaurants aren't).
