Respond to Review of Blooming Cactus
Review: Had one meal here last year. The vindaloo was not particularly spicy (either in heat or taste), the falafel to start were quite dry and did not taste of middle eastern spices and fresh herbs as they should - tasted more of veg stock. They had only one desert on offer - rocky road, which is a pretty poor choice by the restaurant if they can only offer one desert, and also not suitable for my vegan partner. I can't recall the detail of the menu now, but none of it seemed to use local ingredients/style of cooking. I felt that a veggie restaurant in lanzarote should be using lots of fresh veg and herbs and not be making standards like veggie curry and chilli, especially as they obviously cannot get the spices and herbs they need. The owner was welcoming and the service was fine. The venue was nice and cosy.
