Respond to Review of CLOSED: Evergreen Cafe
Review: This place receives great reviews, so we stopped off on a road trip from CA to MN. It was at once the worst vegan meal I've ever had (been vegan for 11 years) and the worst Chinese food I've ever had. There were inordinate amounts of sugar in everything. The hot and sour soup was neither spicy nor sour; instead, it was a thick sweet syrup with bamboo shoots in it. We had the pepper steak and a tofu dish, and only the tofu was palatable. The pepper steak was again super sweet and not spicy. The tofu was less sweet, but was pretty bland. Maybe sugary Chinese food is a Utah thing or maybe it was a really off day at Evergreen, but I will never eat here again. There appear to be a range of veggie options in Salt Lake City, and I wouldn't want to risk this experience again. By the way, I think it is strange that users cannot rank vegetarian restaurants lower than two cows. There are some bad vegetarian restaurants out there, and others need to know. Just because we're vegan or vegetarian doesn't mean that we don't have taste buds and don't deserve a decent meal.
