Respond to Review of Plum Bistro
Review: I'm really surprised by the high ratings. I found the food to be a letdown. Plum seems to be a more expensive version of Hillside Quickie's (same owner): the same flavors but not as good. I would call it "faux fussy." Too many ingredients (I had the Wild Ginger Salad) that were not that harmonious. The tofu was overly teriyaki'd and the texture was downright spongey. My partner's dish also suffered the same problem: a bunch of ingredients that seemed to be thrown together without regard to whether they taste that good together. I have no problem spending $13 or more for a salad, but not one that I wouldn't want to finish. On the bright side, the setting is pretty and the service was friendly. I wanted to like Plum, but I'll stick to Hillside Quickie's.
