Respond to Review of CLOSED: Annamaya
Review: A delightful find, run by a Japanese macrobiotic vegan who is great for a chat. Not a whole lot to add to the other reviews except that you should try the beetroot and avocado donburi rice bowl.. the beetroot is pickled in a light vinegar and cut in such a way that, combined with the avocado, it resembled a tuna sashimi and avocado rice dish I used to enjoy back before my vegetarian days in sydney.. took me way back and was thoroughly enjoyable. I must ask her next time if the dish is deliberately designed to replicate that dish. The cakes are delightful too, but not very sweet so if you are a sweet tooth this is not your fix. For me it took the guilt out of ordering dessert, so all good ;) We also enjoyed the dumplings in a thick soupy sauce. Again, flavours not very robust, but the feeling is wholesome and handmade. Only complaint was that they didn't seem to have many teas available. But maybe we just didn't have all the menu. The wifi is slow (this is China i guess) but functional and if you sit in the right place you can even plug your computer in. We went here to get a bit of work done and ended up sitting there close to the whole day, which apparently is a frequent occurence at this cosy little spot.
