Respond to Review of Doomie's Home Cookin'
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: We went to Doomie's tonight for their grand opening. It was fabulous. We had already been to the brunch just before Thanksgiving which had started late and apparently ran out of food right after we finished, but everything went smoothly tonight and service was attentive and friendly. For the first weekend it was reservation only, so we arrived at 6pm, but the parking attendent was already there with a sign that said it was $6.50. We parked down the street for free. As for the food, OMG! The menu had me drooling just looking at it and I plan to return many times again to try everything! We started off with the jalapeno poppers (which we had at the vegan beer fest) and the mac n cheese. Both yummy! We shared our dinners as well. Country fried steak with roasted potatoes (or option of mashed potatoes) and the soup of the day which was beef noodle: amazing and the soup seemed like the original version. Philly cheesesteak with onion rings: the sandwich was good, but I wouldn't rave about it. I would rave about the onion rings though! The texture and flavor was unbelievable and it totally reminded me of my pre-vegan days. And to cap the whole evening off, we had the deep fried Oreos a la mode. Words fail to describe how amazing this was. It really was the highlight of an already fantastic meal. Bottom line, if you like fried down home cooking vegan style, you must go to Doomie's. Their space is basic and unassuming in a strip mall, but don't let that distract you. Focus on the food!
