Respond to Review of Gracias Madre
Review: The idea of a quality organic vegan Mexican restaurant -particularly in the Mission- is brilliant. Though, I wasn't too impressed with execution here. Vegan Mexican food to me is PokeZ (San Diego): filling, delicious, and authentic. Biggest downside... no organic emphasis. Which is why I was so enthusiastic about Graces Made. I would categorize GM as a raw foodists' attempt at Mexican food... which appearance to be accurate from what I've read about Cafe Gratitude's involvement. It was expensive, with less than generous portions. Decor was incredible, but I'd rather be paying for a great meal. Things were spicy instead of flavorful. And considering its location -in the Mission- I was expecting it to be accessible to the neighboring community, at least a couple dishes... not at those prices. I prefer going to Cafe Gratitude for pricey yet high quality delicious food, and elsewhere for vegan Mexican food. And not Papolotes, hahah.
