Respond to Review of El Buho Vegetariano
by egoulet

Review: I cannot remember the last time I was this blown away by a restaurant. The inside was painted with lime greens, blues, and oranges, with artistic murals painted on all the walls. It was kind of hippie-esque, or bohemian perhaps. The waiter, Yan, thankfully spoke English. The food choices on the menus were astounding. Of our group of 10, 5 were vegetarian. Everyone, including the non-veggies, was equally impressed by the six or so menu pages of dishes, from sandwiches to burritos to salads to naan pizzas. We all got flavored water, and this wasn't your typical Safeway carbonated-fizzy fruit water. The one I got was blackberry, and it was basically blackberry pulp with water. Delicious. Some others got hibiscus water, which was even better. It tasted like fruity ginger green tea. When the food came out we couldn't stop raving about how unbelievably happy we were. I got a "burrito japonese" which was a salad with tofu, miso, sesame seeds, ginger, bell peppers, and a handful of other ingredients that I can't remember right now in a whole wheat wrap. I tried others' naan pizzas, which were crispy and delicious, and a sandwich on whole wheat bread. I honestly can't even remember what was in it because all the wonderful flavors started blending together at this point. For dessert they had chocolate chip cookies that were incredible despite the fact that they had healthy stuff in them. All together I spent less than $10, which is pretty expensive for a Costa Rica meal. I'm extremely disappointed that there isn't a place this wonderful anywhere else, and we plan on returning specifically to go to this restaurant.
