Respond to Review of Georgetown Market
by SKA (SeitanKicksAss)
Review: Nice grocery store offering tons of vegan products. What is great about this place is that it's a locally owned organic and health oriented store. They have an amazing juice bar, a decent hot bar, and a fair selection of vegan baked goods, usually made daily. As far as the vegan options offered in their eatery, at times they may be hit or miss; it really depends on who is doing the cooking. They have an amazing and talented cook named Silvia, but she only works a few days per week. She comes up with creative and tasty dishes that clearly outshine the other cooks they have there. When she isn't working, the other cooks tend to treat the vegan options as side dishes for the meat dishes and these dishes will usually be on the bland and plain side. However, overall, in a city that severely lacks good vegan options and has not even one exclusively vegan restaurant, this place is a pretty much a sure bet. Some of the everyday prepared options like the tofu based eggless salad are awesome when made as a sandwich. Until Indianapolis moves itself in the direction of a modern, forward thinking progressive city, Georgetown Market will somewhat satisfy the needs of the vegans and vegetarians who reside or visit here. However, be forewarned, I have caught this place labeling items as vegan that weren't actually vegan. For example, in the past they have offered pad Thai and labeled it as vegan but the sauce they used was oyster based. I let them know and going forward, they properly labeled it. Then, one day I went in and it was labeled as vegetarian. I was like, huh? Sea animals aren't vegetarian in the least! I went ahead and informed the general manager with the hope they can correct these mistakes in the future.
