Respond to Review of Shandal's Vegetarian Cafe
Review: I work for and in the city of Bridgeport where this wonderful eatery is located. I went Vegan and thought my days of eating out were over and would have to fast on water if I forgot my daily brown bag from home. I found "Shandal's" from this site one day and decided to try (the runner up would be 6inch veggies on whole wheat from Subway) which I was sick of and kept giving in to adding cheese to it for more 'flavor' then I would feel guilty afterward even though I didn't do this often...I guess it was more like a "one night cheese stand". Firstly parking sucks!!!!! Then I walk in to the tiniest little narrow 'hole in the wall' and my heart sank ;( I passed 2 tiny 2 seat tables and walked up to the counter (bout 4 strides) and saw a man standing over his food lines up behind glass, in stainless steel containers in a warming countertop. It looked yummy so I said "Hi" and had the most wonderful conversation w/ the nicest man! I tried the large plate which enables you to pick like 6 different things because I wanted to try it all! THE BEST PART IS it was only $8 ! Holy crap, I thought Vegan food was supposed to be expensive :) I don't think it's organic but I've never asked. I now go to lunch here from work 2-3x a month and brown bag the rest (salads or leftovers) THIS FOOD IS AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS! Instead of Mc'd's, Bk , etc I now eat here. Please don't judge a book by its cover (like I almost did) Location is not the best but it is clean and so freaking good. My faves are: Bbq tofu (only tofu I can & will eat), mashed potatoes, lo mein noodles, 'chicken' w/ peppers & onions, and rice! Darn it...Now I'm hungry!
