Respond to Review of CLOSED: Red Avocado
Review: i ordered caramelized tofu with leeks and potatoes from red avocado's locally grown menu. i have been vegan for five years and eaten at fine restaurants all around the country, and this was a nearly incomparable experience. the potatoes in particular were quite literally the best potatoes i have ever had. i could not imagine what more i could ask out of a potato, although admittedly i would have never asked what i received from these potatoes in the first place. it was a little expensive ($16), but well worth it, considering the ethical, environmental, and gustatorial aspects of the meal. the portion was smaller than at most restaurants, but was exactly enough to make me full without making me overfull -- a good thing, since i can't help but clear my plate, and most restaurants err on the side of too much. if they have to err, too much is better than too little, but why err at at all? my friend ordered the curry and found it delicious but less entirely delicious than my meal. plus, they're all vegan and offer a rather nice selection of wine. i can't imagine what occasion would bring me back to iowa city, but were there ever to be one i would jump at the chance. possibly the closest thing to a perfect meal i have ever had.
