Respond to Review of Veggie Bunch
Review: Let me just start by saying that I did not have any GI issues after eating here. I'll also acknowledge that a lack of GI issues is not a typical segue into a positive restaurant review... Soooo, are scorching hot buffet dishes important to you? Could you possibly put up with a luke-warm item here and there... or perhaps every item? Yep, bacteria no doubt enjoy the Veggie Bunch buffet as much as I did--but again, I had no GI issues! Which pretty much means this place is just awesome, while not of course avoiding the fact that I would probably go back anyway... In any case, the food was ambitious and yet expertly prepared. There was soup, a black bean dessert, fake squid/octopus, fake meatball/fritter-y thing in sauce, three different kinds of tofu, vegetables, some other thing that was squishy and firm at the same time, some fake fish (which of course I didn't try), noodles, and a wonderfully crunchy/chewy chicken-y item. Again, each dish was expertly prepared, which means that not only are the ingredients fashioned together by a real chef, but the food has not been "americanized", and the vegetarian spirit is well beyond assumed, all the way into sublime... okay, maybe a little overboard there, but for a vegetarian to sit down and have a meal creatively pre-prepared by a chef who has clearly been a vegatarian for a long time... ooo la la!
