Respond to Review of La Mano Verde
Review: After reading the reviews on HappyCow my partner and I were looking forward to treating ourselves to a romantic night at La Mano Verde, unfortunately we were disappointed. This was our first visit to a totally vegan restaurant; I'm vegetarian and my partner eats some meat so maybe we don't realise how hard it is to find vegan food but we didn't rate the food here to the standard the very expensive price list (especially for Berlin) seemed to set. I just don't get some mock meats, just the thoughts of mock tuna and mock chicken makes me feel ill. I craved some wholesome vegetable dishes but found pasta, schnitzel and nuggets. I asked the waitress were the nuggets like mock chicken and she looked at me horrified and said no way. They were exactly like chicken nuggets and even tore like chicken flesh. I couldn't eat them. The gazpacho would be tastier cold, the schnitzel with peanut sauce was ok and the giant ravioli was tasty but the portion was tiny. The mojito was ok but very very expensive and we left without ordering dessert and in search of falafel. All in all very expensive and tastier food found at other fraction of the price Berlin cafes but as the venue was lovely and the staff were outstanding I really wish they amend their menu to add in even some simple but nutritious vegetable dishes.
