Respond to Review of CLOSED: Organic Lives
Review: I think you need to know what to order to get a great meal here. Not all dishes are great, but the ones that are are fantastic. I've been twice in the past weekend and these are my recommendations (great food has been starred): *Hot Pink- A delicious blend with beet, pineapple and pear. Sweet but not cloyingly. Tasty, with a hint of burdock. Deep Cleanse- Oh my gosh, this is an acquired taste. Strong. Intense ginger and lemon flavours. Too much for me. I would not re-order since it is so powerful, it would compete with any other food. Super... smoothie- Tasted like a malty chocolate banana smoothie with a bit of murkiness (probably from the mesquite, lucuma, etc.). I wouldn't order this again because I can make a delicious maca+banana smoothie easily at home although you get the benefits of all the other superfoods thrown in there. *Carrot Avocado Veloute - Delicious. Creamy, rich yet light with a lovely hint of dill. I was hesitant to order a raw soup but this was great (served at room temp). *Mexi Spirals - Lovely! Fresh vegetables with a tangy spicy dressing. Enjoyed these. Cesar Salad- Liked the almond croutons but did not think the dressing stood out as anything great. *Sicilian Wrap - Really enjoyed this. The sauce made this a great wrap and the wrap was nicely flavoured as well. Filled with sprouts. Really enjoyed this with a side of a large carrot avocado soup. *Sprouted Pecan Sushi with Avocado and Mango- While there are only small pieces of mango and avocado, I found these to be delicious. They held their shape well and tasted great. The dipping was had a bit too much kick in large quantities, but complemented it well. Lasagna- Thrown off because this was served cold. Not particularly flavourful and seemed a bit heavy. I've had better raw lasagnas elsewhere. Spring Roll with a coconut-pear wrap. I was disappointed the coconut and pear was in the wrap and not INSIDE the wrap. However, the wrap was nicely flavoured and the sauce really made it nicely flavoured. I loved how it was overflowing with sprouts and veggies. The kelp and zucchini noodle salad was ok, nothing to write home about. Zucchini was way more plentiful then the kelp noodles, so I thought the description on the menu was misleading. The Ridiculous - A dark chocolate cake. Rich without being heavy. Not worth $7. The OMG - A nice coconut pie, but served chilled like ice cream. Would not order again. Hope this helps you pick out great meals!
