Respond to Review of 1847 The Vegetarian Bistro and Bar - City Centre
Review: We visited the 1847 Vegetarian Bistro 29th July, for lunch. I am a gluten-free vegan, so was quite happy to see that the menu offered options to accommodate my requirements. I was disappointed, however, to discover that the options for creating a gluten-free or vegan dish changed the essence of my choice. Example - Beer-battered tofu with hand-cut chips and mushy peas. Interesting. However, the gluten-free option meant that the tofu was served undressed -which resulted in a very brown, deep-fried dish. As most vegetarian/vegans, I love the array of colour I can usually look forward to with a meal. The menu offered only 6 dishes from which to select - and only two of those would meat my requirements. Though the food was fine, this is the type of selection I can find in most mainstream restaurants, so I wasn't overwhelmed with a tasty vegan experience. I'd give this restaurant a 6 out of 10, and that would mostly be in favour of our very friendly waiter. Not far away is the 8th Day cafe. A much better choice in the area, but unfortunately closed on Sundays.
