Respond to Review of Sonny
by Aurelia

Review: We stumbled upon this vegetarian falafel joint near the Albert Cuyp market and, being hungry and uncertain whether we'd find something equally meat-free and tempting in the 'hood, decided to take a gamble. The fellow behind the counter was friendly and helpful, explaining what was vegan and what wasn't (only the tzaziki wasn't vegan). We ordered falafel and had the choice of whole-wheat or regular pita, with eggplant or without. The salad-bar offerings were varied and tasty: curried chickpeas, hummus, tapenade, and lots of different salads and several hot sauces. Just like its competitor, Maoz, Sonny offers all-you-can-eat falafel fillings, so you don't have to feel shy about going back for seconds. The falafel itself was sort of boring; not a lot of flavor, unfortunately. At least it was filling and hot. The fries were good, too: crispy and hot. We also got a special vegan dipping sauce (a mix of hot sauces) instead of the mayo-based stuff they usually serve. We appreciated the interesting drinks--lychee, tamarind, coconot--and the tables out front. Later, we discoverd a Maoz right around the corner, but I'm glad we tried Sonny, if only for comparison's sake.
