Respond to Review of CLOSED: Almaca Restaurante Vegetariano
Review: I've eaten in so many vegetarian restaurants, that it really does that a lot to wow me. This place did just that. We arrived almost at closing time. The folks behind the counter assured us that all was well, explained the offering for the day, offered to have us sample even, then took our order and we were seated. First, there was a surprise : garlic bread. Bursting with loads of fresh garlic on toasted whole meal bread, it was really good. Then came the entrees. There was SO much food, we could have shared. The partner had the mini potato pies, and there was a side of grain, salad and cooked vegetable. I had a bit, it was wonderful. I had the tofu on a bed of cooked red cabbage and a side of roasted potatoes. No kidding, this was the best tofu ever. There were capers and the taste was out of this world good. We chatted some with the person who turned out to be the owner, and she was so happy we found her restaurant on Happycow! The restaurant itself is very cute, open, and well appointed. This meal and experience have to be the best ever, or at least top three, vegetarian dinning I've ever had. As if there was not enough reason to go visit Sintra, now there is one more. When in Portugal, do not miss eating here!
