Respond to Review of Hermanos Cocina Mexicana
Review: On a visit to NH recently, we made a special trip over to Concord to eat at Hermanos Cocina Mexicana. The hostess and our waitress were both very welcoming and professional, and the menu -- which includes many vegan options -- is huge. However, we were sadly disappointed in the vegan food that we ordered. We split a cup of the special sweet potato soup of the day. It was bland and could have used a little spiciness or more seasonings. We added salt, but it was still unremarkable. For entrees, we got a veggie burrito platter and a veggie chimichanga platter, both with the vegan "beef" crumbles and vegan cheeze. These were even more disappointing. The cheeze brand/flavor used (which tasted like old school Kraft American singles) did not complement the Mexican dishes flavor-wise, was electric orange colored, and was generally unpleasant. It made the entrees unappetizing. It tasted like an old-school rice-based cheeze to me, but I'm not sure of what they use. I would strongly recommend that they look into trying Daiya pepper jack cheeze or some of the newer vegan cheeze products that are on the market which have a more realistic taste, texture, and color. We think it wonderful that Hermanos makes an effort to offer vegan items on their menu, and the staff were outstanding. However, we will not be going back again and won't be recommending the restaurant to others. The food was not good, and it was expensive to boot.
