Respond to Review of Gracias Madre
by kjunspiis

Review: My mother, husband and I were traveling to SF this past weekend and, having checked out the reviews and this restaurant's website, decided to drop in for dinner. We loved the communal seating, and the food was delicious. the staff was gracious, and the atmosphere was warm and homey. The only suggestions I would make are that they kick up the spice factor on some of the dishes (the quesdilla had a nice kick, but the chile relleno wasn't spicy enough), and possibly use meat substitutes like seitan in some of the dishes. One of the staff members invited us to the official grand opening yesterday, but we couldn't attend - I hope this restaurant is around for a long time!!!

For people who do like spicy food, the flavour is generally much better when the spice is cooked into the food, not added later out of a tobasco bottle. I love spice, but I hate that tobasco sh*te that they give you everywhere in the US.
Non-spice eaters can eat like 95% of the food out there, we get like 5%. Would it really bother you if we got a couple more dishes?
In any case, for the food to be authentic, it should be spicy.

Many people like myself have no tolerance for hot spicy food. If they "kick up" their spiciness level, we will not be able to eat those dishes. It's best that restaurants keep the heat mild and provide hot sauce for patrons who want to increase the heat. Or, like Indian restaurants, they could ask you what level of heat you'd like in your dish.
