Respond to Review of AlmaZen
Review: With Universo Organico, located in Rio de Janeiro, I consider Almazen to be the place where I could experience a whole different food journey. The restaurant is quite small with a nice atmosphere. The menu changes everyday, so maybe you'll never have the same dish I did. So, after checking with the waiter, my girlfriend and I asked for the only vegan dish they had in the menu. To be completely honest, I didn't recognized any of the ingredients of the dish (and I consider myself a "spanish speaker"). After a long time (is this the slow food concept? hehe) the plate came with something that looked like a lasagna (I'm posting a picture of it) and that's when we were amazed. At the first bite we were able to taste a very exquisite flavor that we have never experienced and, of course, I am not able to describe with words. Maybe I'm pushing it a little, but I can't wait to go to Lima again and give it another shot. And yes, it is a expensive, but you get what you're paying for.
