Respond to Review of Gracias Madre
Review: I was awaiting the opening of this restaurant for months on end as were some of my friends. It was an exciting day when it finally opened! I liked that upon entering it felt nothing like being in Cafe Gratitude. However, you will still see the Cafe Gratitude roots when you look at the menu and note the abcense of seitan or tofu in the dishes. My boyfriends theory is that they only have beans for protein to be traditionally Mexican, but I think these items would be a great addition to the menu. Our food was amazing and tasty albeit pricey but we were hungry again not all that much later. I lovvved the Mexican wedding cookies that we got for desert and thought it was interesting that they were smushed flat as I have only had Mexican wedding cookies that were small and round before. The location is really convenient. Just a few blocks from the 16th and Mission BART station, but it's a bit too pricey to be a regular to go to restaurant.
